Welcome to the Dietitians Group webpages

The SSIEM-Dietitians Group (SSIEM-DG) is a subgroup of dietitians within the SSIEM. Members are involved in the dietary treatment of patients with inherited metabolic disorders. Meetings of the group are held during the annual SSIEM symposium.

Communication is through meetings, corresponding members, SSIEM-DG website and e-mail.

Our main aims are:

1. to provide a network to facilitate communication amongst  dietitians  working with inherited metabolic disorders (IMD)

2. to provide education and training for people looking after IMD patients

3. to promote research in dietetic treatment of IMD
