In Australia, the distinction between a dietitian and a nutritionist is that, in addition to working in the same settings as nutritionists (such as public health and the food industry ) dieticians are also qualified to work in private clinical practice and hospitals.

The advice of a medical dietician is useful no matter how old you are or what condition you are in. Eating is the primary way our body receives all of the energy it needs to sustain life, and all of the vitamins and minerals needed for healthy function, growth, repair and recovery. So what we eat is extremely important, particularly if the body is healing, undergoing physical stresses, dramatic changes such as pregnancy, or slowly weakening through age or degeneration. Parents are especially concerned with the health of their children, which is directly linked to the nutritional value of their diet, which, in some cases, has specific individual requirements.

Children and adults with certain conditions can require very specific diets or supplementation programs, which can often greatly improve their condition and daily life. Shenton Avenue Medical Centre are very focused on holistic care, understanding the complex relationships between the body’s systems and their impact on our dietary requirements. Our dietician can offer nutritional planning that is tailored to each patient’s specific dietary needs and can be adapted over time.
