What is the difference between a Dietitian and Nutritionist?
An Accredited Practising Dietitian is a qualified Dietitian and also a Nutritionist. Dietitian's are university graduated health professionals that have undertaken additional learning for medical conditions, pharmacology and hospital placement to legally be able to treat someone living with a medical condition
A Nutritionist can also be university qualified however it is best to ask for credentials as the term 'nutritionist' is unfortunately not protected meaning someone without the appropriate training can use this title.
Nutritionists do not undertake training specifically to work with someone with a medical condition.
When should I see a Dietitian?
Even though Dietitians are able to care for individuals with medical conditions, you don't have to have a pre-existing condition for a visit.
You can visit the clinic for nutrition education, specific dietary advice, or if you, a loved one or your GP have recommended seeing a Dietitian.
