Hildegard Strydom
Registered Dietitian

B Dietetics (UP)     Masters in Nutrition  (US)




I studied B Dietetics at the University of Pretoria and obtained my degree in 2001. In January 2002 I started working at the NHS (National Health Service) in the United Kingdom. Until November 2003 I worked in hospitals all over England and it was there where I first developed an interest in the dietary treatment of diabetes.

Upon my return to South Africa I started a private practice with special focus on treatment of diabetes, insulin resistance and weight management.  I continued my tertiary studies and received my Masters degree in 2009 with research focusing on the knowledge of South African Dietitians regarding the implementation of a diet with a low Glycaemic Index in the prevention and management of diabetes.

Apart from being in private practice, I have been involved in writing diet related information sheets for pharmaceutical companies, was consulted for various diet related magazine articles, consulted as a food labelling specialist and did training sessions on diabetic dietary intervention for medical doctors, dietitians and pharmacists.

Consulting with my clients and implementing dietary treatment of diabetes, insulin resistance and related weight gain is my absolute passion and I feel blessed to be able to make a difference in their quality of life.
