The Body Clinic’s dietitian provides an in-depth knowledge on diet and health issues, helping you make choices to suit your health needs. This could include, weight loss, healthy eating, allergies, food intolerances, inflammatory bowel diseases, diabetes and many more.
This usually involves a dietary assessment and a one to one consultation between you and our dietitian. At The Body Clinic we use Registered Dietitians ensuring you receive only the highest standard of advice.
For specific dietary advice a referral is required from your doctor, though for general advice this is not a necessity.
Why consult a Dietitian?
The title "Registered Dietitian", "Professional Dietitian", and "Dietitian" are protected by law -- through legislation -- so that only qualified practitioners, who have met education qualifications can use these titles.
Remember, the term Nutritionist is not protected by law so anyone can use this title. A Nutritionist is a non-accredited title that may apply to somebody who has done a short course in nutrition or who has given themselves this title without any training.
Registered Dietitians are uniquely qualified to translate the complex science of nutrition into practical everyday information about food. They can do this for individuals or groups of people to help promote nutritional wellbeing, treat disease and prevent nutrition related problems.
A Dietitian is a health professional who has a Bachelor's degree or post-graduate qualification in Nutrition and Dietetics, specialising in foods and nutrition, as well as a period of practical training in both hospital and community settings.
Dietitians in the UKmust be registered with the Health Professional Council (“HPC”). Registration ensures that Dietitians adhere to a strict set of standards covering areas of conduct, performance, proficiency and ethics and also maintain their continuing professional development to remain registered.
