Dietitians are experts in expert nutrition advice for people of all ages. In addition to qualifications in nutrition science, dietitians have completed extensive clinical placement which allow them to work across private practice, hospitals and community centers.
A dietitian can help people with:
• Gastro-intestinal disease
• Excessive weight
• Eating disorders
Dietitians vs Nutritionists:
Both these professions help people in reaching optimal health through food and nutrition, however only an Accredited Practicing Dietitian (APD) registered with the Dietitians Association of Australia (DAA) is qualified to provide medical nutrition therapy or clinical nutrition consults in a group or individual setting.
