Dietetics is the study of the relationship between nutrition and health. Dietitians apply their knowledge to issues ranging from prescription diets for people suffering from specific medical conditions to recommendations for individuals who want to improve their health through dietary changes. What people eat can have a profound impact on their level of general health.
Some of the conditions our dieticians may manage using scientific-based nutrition information include weight management, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, gastrointestinal disease, digestive disorders and aged-care nutrition.
