Nutritionist & Dietitian

Dietitians

Dietitians apply their knowledge in the science of nutrition to help individuals seeking advice about disease and general health, to make educated decisions about their food choices and lifestyle.

As it stands, dietitians are the only professionals in the field of nutrition who are ‘statutorily regulated’. This means they are governed by law, and an ethical code of practice is in place to ensure that work is carried out to the highest possible standards.

Dietitians work in a variety of settings, from the NHS right through to education, publishing, sport and in government roles. Their expertise can be applied on a one to one basis to treat complex conditions in an individual, or on a wider scale such as informing the general public about food and health policy or educating other health professionals or community groups about nutrition.

Whatever the situation, a dietitian must apply knowledge that is supported by evidence, research and trials, as opposed to advice that is based upon personal opinion and beliefs or upon anything from which they could gain financially.

Dietitians are an essential component, or ‘cog’ of a complex machine which involves many different teams of professionals who work together to treat complex conditions. This means that a dietitian may be consulted to assist in the recovery of eating disorder, or advice may be sought from them to help with digestive disorders, chronic fatigue syndrome or for formulating an eating programme for an individual who requires a special diet as part of their medical treatment, for example in patients with: cancer, HIV/AIDS, diabetes, oncology.

They will also be able to give advice on maintaining optimum nutritional status when patients wish to explore what are considered to be ‘alternative therapies’, such as an exclusion diet or a diet for autism.

They may well provide this care from an NHS setting, or it may be that their help has been sought on a freelance basis from an individual. Either way, their treatment and advice will incorporate the science of nutrition as well as practical advice for their patients.

Legally, dietitians are allowed to dispense or supply medication that is prescription only, such as insulin, and they are also permitted to manage dosages of nutritional supplements, meaning they are able to adjust quantities on a patients drug chart.

  • Typically a dietitian will advise people with special dietary needs such as those with kidney disease diabetes or cancer.
  • Because dietitians are regulated healthcare professionals, they are qualified to treat certain medical conditions.

Nutritionists

A nutritionist is a non-accredited title that may apply to somebody who has done a short course in nutrition or who has given themselves this title. The term Nutritionist is not protected by law in almost all countries so people with different levels of and knowledge can call themselves a "Nutritionist".

There are also qualified nutritionists, who are people who have completed University Degrees in Food Science, Human Nutrition, Food and Nutrition, or Food Technology. They are also called Food Scientists. University qualified Nutritionists and Food Scientists normally work for food manufacturers, retailed businesses, in research and public health promotion. Some may work as Dietitian Assistants or Food Journalists. Nutritionists do not have any professional practical training, and therefore they should not be involved in the diagnosis and dietary treatment of any diseases.

Since the title 'nutritionist' has been used by many unqualified people to describe their involvement in food and nutrition related practice, you should be careful when choosing a qualified nutritional professional.
