Ruth Harvey, RD
Hi, I’m Ruth and I am a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist with over 10 years experience in the NHS, research and private practice. I have worked in many specialist areas during this time including gastroenterology (everything to do with the gut), research into gestational diabetes, PCOS, kidney disease and weight management, but it was my own journey into motherhood that gave me the passion to specifically help other women.
What is a dietitian?
In case you were wondering a registered dietitian = a nutritionist who has studied nutrition at university and gained a degree or higher in nutrition and dietetics. We are registered with The Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC, like your GP is) and therefore have to meet high standards of ethics and continued professional development. We are the only nutrition professional able to give nutritional advice related to medical conditions. We do not put people on diets! We provide individual advice which helps people to learn about nutrition and understand the best foods that they can eat to improve their own health.
