    Know Your Dietitian and Nutritionist

    The significance of nutrition and diet cannot be overstated. Consuming a balanced and nutritious diet can have many advantageous effects on your mental and physical health and aid in the prevention and management of chronic diseases. Given the amount of information and misinformation available regarding what and how we should eat, having an understanding of nutrition and diet can help you make informed decisions about your overall health. Paying attention to what you eat can make a huge difference in the quality of life as a whole, whether you are looking to lose weight, manage a medical condition, or simply feel your best.

    At times, it can be daunting to find a good nutritionist or dietitian for a diet consultation. Worry not! LivLong has compiled a list of nutritionists and dietitians who provide diet consultations through online nutritionist consultation or online dietitian consultation in addition to in-person consultation.

    Who is a nutritionist or dietitian?

    A nutritionist or dietitian is a trained professional who provides diet consultation and will plan your meals based on your health condition and nutritional needs. They can advise you on how to eat the right foods in the right proportions to attain your ideal health and weight.

     What conditions does a dietitian or nutritionist treat?

    Dietitians and nutritionists offer diet consultation by providing advice and support for a wide range of health issues and conditions, including:

    Difference between medical and surgical oncologists

    Cancer is treated non-surgically by a medical oncologist by using techniques including chemotherapy, immunotherapy, and targeted therapy. Contrarily, surgical oncologists do biopsies to identify cancer and conduct operations to eliminate malignant cells and tumours.

    A medical oncologist oversees the progress of the patient's treatment as the primary healthcare practitioner for someone with cancer. General surgeons who specialise in cancer and associated surgical treatments are called surgical oncologists. A medical oncologist also serves as the authorised person who oversees the patients' post-treatment follow-ups and examinations. Performing specific kinds of biopsies to aid in the diagnosis of cancer is another area of expertise for surgical oncologists.

    Takeaway

    As discussed, an oncologist is a professional who helps in the diagnosis and treatment of different types of cancer with the help of related tests. Consulting an oncologist at an initial stage can lead to efficient management of cancer. The practice of consulting an oncologist online has made it easy for many patients to interact with their oncologist at any given time.

    What are the qualifications of a dietitian and nutritionist?

    In India, the minimum requirement considered necessary for a registered dietitian is a B.Sc. in Nutrition and Dietetics or an equivalent degree recognised by the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) and the Indian Dietetic Association (IDA).

    In addition to this, individuals should complete a 6-month internship programme in an IDA-accredited healthcare facility after completing their undergraduate program. Besides the internship, students need to pass a national dietetic registration examination of the IDA to become registered dietitians.
