How can a dietitian help me?
Dietitians are qualified to provide evidence-based nutrition services and have the expertise to provide individual dietary counselling, medical nutrition therapy, group dietary therapy and food service management. A dietitian has undertaken an accredited course of study that included substantial theory and supervised/assessed professional practice in clinical nutrition, medical nutrition therapy and food service management. Dietitians work with patients who are struggling to lose weight or need to improve their diet for chronic conditions like diabetes or high blood cholesterol. They work with patients to understand their needs and challenges, and design meal plans accordingly.

What is medical nutrition therapy?
Medical Nutrition Therapy, often abbreviated as MNT, is an evidence-based medical approach to treating certain chronic conditions with an individually-tailored nutrition plan, by a qualified dietitian. MNT involves in-depth individualized nutrition assessment and a duration and frequency of care using the Nutrition Care Process to manage disease.
