What is a Dietitian?

Blacktown Dietitians use food as medicine!

When it comes to food and nutrition, dietitians are the trained experts. Dietitians help treat and manage a wide range of conditions and their side effects including Autism and fussy eating, Peg feeding, texture-modified diets related to muscle wastage and choking risk, diabetes, heart disease, cancers, gastrointestinal diseases, food allergies and intolerances, disordered eating, overweight and obesity

Many people think of a dietitian as someone who simply helps with weight loss, but this is not the case at all! Dietitians provide expert advice for people of all ages, in all stages of health.

With experience in a range of conditions, as well as a special understanding when it comes to people living with a disability, our NDIS registered dietitians provide real and reliable advice. We will equip you and your support people with the knowledge and skills to take control of your own health.

We like to think of our dietitians as nutritional scientists, who translate scientific research into practical advice with a focus on real, wholefoods.

Active Ability’s clinical dietitians see clients throughout Blacktown including Ryde, Sydney’s Inner West, Eastern Suburbs, and Southwest Sydney as well as Sutherland Shire, Parramatta City, Wollongong, and The Hills Shire.
