Learn more about Dietitians

A dietitian is a healthcare provider who specializes in promoting optimal health and preventing and treating diseases through the science of nutrition. In fact, some dietitians use ‘registered dietitian nutritionist’ (RDN) as a professional title to reflect their specialty. They use food and nutrition to help people of all ages manage their weight, medical conditions, food allergies, and wellness. Dietitians work in a variety of settings, including hospitals, clinics, long-term care facilities, food service settings, education, research, and community agencies.

A dietitian typically: 

  • Reviews and evaluates a patient’s health history, current diet, and physical activity practices
  • Teaches and counsels patients and caregivers about healthy eating habits, menu planning, and lifestyle choices
  • Recommends nutrition strategies, monitors your progress, and adjusts your nutrition plan
  • Designs and implements medical nutrition therapy including diet supplementation, feeding tube nutrition, and intravenous (IV) nutrition
  • Orders and interprets nutrition-related laboratory tests
  • Works closely with a patient’s entire medical team, as well as with family members, social workers, and teachers as needed
  • Advises athletes and other exercise-conscious people about the role food and nutrition plays in their fitness, performance, and overall health
  • Oversees food service operations in hospitals and other healthcare facilities, school cafeterias, day care centers, food corporations, and correctional facilities

A dietitian may also be known by the following names: registered dietitian (RD), nutritionist, registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN), nutrition counselor, and dietetic counselor.
