Dietitians understand how your body works and how food and drinks help nourish, healthy individuals, sport athletes and those with medical conditions that are affected by or treated with nutrition. Nationally Accredited Dietitians hold a four year university degree, with a defined body of knowledge to influence the wider environment affecting food intake and eating behaviour using scientific principles and evidence based methods.
Typically a summary of your food and fluid intake will be reviewed, input into a nutritional analysis system to identify deficiencies or excessive consumption and then a personalised plan will be tailored for you. This plan aims to meet necessary energy and nutrient requirements for your lifestyle..
Dietitians are eligible for Medicare and private health fund rebates. They can also assist with NDIS and Department of Veteran Affairs claims.
