Dietitian

The first thing that people think of when they hear dietitian is weight loss, but a dietitian can help with so much more than that. Taking an interest in your diet and reviewing what you are eating and the impact it has on your body can have a number of different triggers so it is important to communicate with us why you have decided to change your diet and how we can support you.

The average person might have an idea of the effect of different foods on the body, but how your body reacts to food can differ from individual to individual. And that’s not even considering how a medical condition or new medication can impact your usual eating routines.

Being able to speak to someone with the knowledge to recommend food that fits your unique digestion is important so that wrong decisions with detrimental effects can be avoided. Our diets play such an enormous part in our overall health and wellbeing that is important to seek guidance from a dietitian before drastically changing our diets.

Our dietitian, Ruth Kander, is an expert in food and helps promote nutritional wellbeing, prevent nutrition-related problems and treat disease. Ruth can tailor a diet that meets your specific goals and situation.

What are you hoping to achieve?

  • Are you looking to run a marathon this year?
  • Have you recently been diagnosed with diabetes and unsure how to alter your diet accordingly?
  • Perhaps you’re struggling with weight management?
  • Do you suffer from IBS and are confused about what you can and cannot eat?
  • Maybe you’ve achieved a healthy weight and simply want to maintain it?

Our private dietitian can help you achieve your dietary goals and offer advice that can help raise your health to an optimal level.

What can I expect from my initial appointment?

During your initial appointment, you will discuss your medical issues and lifestyle with our dietician.

We’ll discuss what you hope to achieve and Ruth, our dietitian will provide personalised advice to meet your individual needs. All information shared during your appointments are kept confidential and a willingness to be open often produces the best results.

What do I need to bring to my initial appointment?

We recommend bringing any medical documents you may have, such as doctor letters, GP summaries, medication list and/ or blood results.

This information can be helpful to plan your personalised nutrition information.

It’s also worth thinking about your goals prior to the consultation rather than thinking on the spot in the appointment. You will be able to carefully decide what you want support with and it will provide Ruth a far more accurate idea on how she can best help you.

FAQs

A dietitian is a healthcare professional recognised by orthodox medicine and registered with the health and professions council (HCPC). A dietitian will be medically trained and will have a 4 year degree in nutrition and dietetics and are the only nutrition professionals to be regulated by law.

A nutritionist is not a protected title and anyone can call themselves a nutritionist, which makes vetting this profession harder and more confusing. A nutritionist can have any kind of qualification or even none. It is important to remember that there are also registered nutritionists who have a solid degree in nutrition and are trained to advise on healthy nutrition to healthy people but not all are and so it can be risky than choosing to see a dietitian which is government by an ethical code to ensure that they always work to the highest standard.

Food allergies need to be tested by an allergy specialist doctor and is not something our dietitian can help you with. Food intolerances are tested with careful history and discussion with the patient. It is important to get these tests done at reputable medical practices rather than over the internet as some tests are unregulated, not recognised by medical professionals and/ or are scientifically unproven to accurately indicate a food allergy.
