A nutritionist is a person who has education and training on diets and nutrition, and who can advise you on healthy eating and nutritional topics.
A nutritionist is not a Registered Dietitian or licensed as a healthcare practitioner. They may have a degree in nutrition, but this is not required, in order to be a nutritionist.
When you have diabetes, there are many questions, including:
* What should I eat?
* What can't I eat?
* Is there a special diet I should
* Why do I need to eat a bedtime snack?
A nutritionist can help to answer these questions, while also providing:
* information on eating properly
* nutritional information regarding
different types of foods
* weight loss suggestions/ideas
* support during your diet challenges
* coaching for meal problem-solving
When you have diabetes, you don't have to tread the diet and nutrition waters alone. Talk to your doctor about a referral to a nutritionist or registered dietitian to help you develop appropriate meal plans, and to problem-solve your nutritional needs and concerns.
a nutritionist 'must' definitely have a degree in nutrition from an institute approved my the Nutrition Society so as to become Registered Nutritionist. You CANT be a nutritionist without a degree!!
