What is a dietitian?
Dietitians are the only qualified health professionals that assess, diagnose and treat dietary and nutritional problems at an individual and wider public-health level. They work with both healthy and sick people. Uniquely, dietitians use the most up-to-date public health and scientific research on food, health and disease which they translate into practical guidance to enable people to make appropriate lifestyle and food choices.

What to expect in your consultation
In your first appointment the dietitian will want to learn more about you and the issues you are having. You will discuss your eating habits, lifestyle and also your questions linking to your home life and current health. Especially in cases where weight loss is an issue, you will also discuss your emotional relationship with food.
This information will help the dietitian create an easy to follow plan to help you make small, realistic changes to your eating habits and lifestyle to help improve your concerns.
It may be appropriate to keep a food diary for three days before your consultation so you can review this with the dietitian.
