Reasons to see a dietitian
A dietitian can help you to make the changes to your dietary habits and support you in your weight loss journey.
Our highly experienced bariatric dietitians are fully qualified to provide nutritional guidance and support, assessing your individual needs and any medical conditions you may have.
Perhaps you’re struggling to lose weight or maintain your it following weight loss, or you may have a medical condition that is making it difficult to achieve the healthy lifestyle you’re working towards. Our dietitians can advise and support you in reaching a healthy weight and guide you through the entire weight loss journey.
Even if you’re yet to have your weight loss surgery, it is essential to speak with a dietitian before the actual operation takes place. Procedures like a gastric band, bypass or sleeve gastrectomy reduce your portion sizes and can affect your absorption of certain vitamins and minerals, meaning your physical and dietary requirements will change.
Depending on your current weight, it is likely you will need to follow a pre-operative diet for a few days or weeks before surgery can take place. Our dietitians will advise you on the best course of action to prepare for weight loss surgery.
At The Hospital Group, you have access to experienced dietitians who can help you decide whether weight loss surgery is right for you. After your procedure, our dietitians will be on hand to provide all the expert support you will need to make the necessary changes to your diet.
