What is a Clinical Nutritionist / Dietitian?

A Clinical Nutritionist or Dietitian working in Ireland has a recognized qualification in Nutrition & Dietetics and is a member of the Irish Nutrition and Dietetics Institute (I.N.D.I.). We have a scientific and medical background, which ensures that we can educate you on your nutritional needs, taking into account any medical condition you may have.
