What is a Dietitian?

Registered Dietitians (RDs) are the only qualified health professionals that assess, diagnose and treat dietary and nutritional problems. We work with both healthy and sick people. Uniquely, dietitians use the most up-to-date research on food, health and disease – translated into practical guidance to help you to make appropriate lifestyle and food choices.
Dietitians are the only nutrition professionals to be regulated by law and have an ethical code of conduct similar to doctors. This means that you, as patients/clients, are protected and can be assured that you will get the latest credible evidence-based information.
