Dietetics and Nutrition

Dietitians help people understand the relationship between food and health. Dietitians can help you make dietary choices to support your health, and to prevent and treat illness and disease.

Dietitians can assist with a range of conditions including bowel disorders, metabolic syndrome, malnutrition, eating disorders, kidney and liver disorders, childhood feeding issues and tube feeding.

Dietitians can also advise clients on pre- and post- operative nutrition, on nutrition during oncology treatment, and provide healthy eating advice for a range of conditions.

Patients referred for diabetes management will be seen by the Diabetes Dietitian.
