What is a Dietitian? Back to Home

A Dietitian or clinical nutritionist is someone who has a recognized qualification to allow them to practice in a hospital. Only qualified dietitians can become a member of the ‘Irish Nutrition and Dietetic Institute‘ (INDI). A qualified dietitian will usually have the letters ‘MINDI’ after their name and that will let you know if they are appropriately qualified to deal with diet and nutritional management in specific clinical conditions. Many dietitians work in industry and with professional sports teams. Very often a dietitian will work as part of a multidisciplinary team e.g. with a consultant physician, physiotherapist and psychologist to provide such services as weight management, diabetes care and cardiac care.

Who should see a Dietitian? Back to Home

Many medical conditions are treated predominantly by diet e.g. Diabetes, obesity, coeliac disease, cardiac conditions, anaemia, kidney disease and many bowel conditions,in conjunction with medical care.

If you have a diagnosed medical condition, needing treatment or surgery, getting advice and support from a dietitian can aid recovery and reduce the risks of complications such as weight loss, malabsorption, infection, poor wound healing, fatigue, anaemia. Seeing a dietitian can aid a faster recovery and result in less need for future medical intervention
