THE LONDON DIABETES DIETITIAN

Hello, my name is Chanda Pattni and I am The London Diabetes Dietitian.

As a registered dietitian (since 2003) my career has spanned both the NHS and private sector working in diabetes clinical practice, research and health promotion. 

I am passionate about helping people with pre-diabetes (Impaired Fasting Glycaemia and Impaired Glucose Tolerance), Type 2 Diabetes and Type 1 Diabetes to manage their conditions and reduce the risk of developing long term complications. 

The London Diabetes Dietitian was created to give people the tools to manage the impact of diabetes on their lives.  I want to understand what your health and lifestyle goals are in order to provide you with tailored dietary advice and practical support which makes a real difference.

I translate nutrition science into understandable, practical information about food, allowing you to make appropriate lifestyle and food choices to prevent or manage diabetes by creating meaningful and effective dietary plans which you can follow for the rest of your life.

DIABETES SPECIALIST DIETETIC SERVICES

The London Diabetes Dietitian provides professional and high-quality diabetes specialist dietetic services which are designed to meet your individual needs. 

In most situations your diabetes will be managed in a GP and/or hospital setting.  In order to give you the safest and most effective dietary care we only see people who have a referral from their Consultant or GP. *

*We are happy with your written consent to request all required information from your GP practice prior to your first appointment with us if this is more convenient for you. (We will charge you the same price as your GP charges us for providing this information and apply a standard administration fee of £30).

All our consultations can be offered to you in person,  by telephone or video call (Skype/WhatsApp).
