Your consultation with the dietitian can last from forty to sixty minutes, depending on the complexity of the issues involved. At this consultation, the dietitian will review your usual diet in the context of your medical history and the specific reasons that your doctor reffered you.
Then the dietitian will work with you to develop a dietary plan that will fulfill your medical needs as well as being tailored to suit your lifestyle and particular situation. Education on this dietary plan will ensure that you are well equipped to make the necessary nutritional and lifestyle changes. The dietitian will then review you on an ongoing basis as required, to continue supporting you.
