About me

Hello everyone, I am Derya Hyusein and I am a Registered Dietitian with experience in both acute and community settings. As a registered dietitian with the Health and Care Professions Council, I am regulated by law and governed by an ethical code so you can be confident that you are receiving safe and evidence-based nutritional guidance.

My special interests are weight management, diabetes, sports nutrition and women's health. I am a member of the British Dietetic Association (BDA) and Parental Nutrition Association (PEN) member.

Prior to becoming a Registered Dietitian, I assisted more than 3000 women in achieving their health and fitness goals as a Certified Personal Trainer and Health Coach. I've further gained a specialisation in Sports Nutrition as part of my Master's degree. 

Languages: I am fluent in three languages – Turkish, Bulgarian, and English – this provides me with an edge in accessing and understanding research from diverse sources

Areas of expertise:

  • Weight management/weight loss
  • Sports Nutrition
  • PCOS
  • Type 2 Diabetes
  • Prediabetes

Training, qualifications & experience

I've pursued my Masters's Degree in Nutrition and Dietetics at Robert Gordon University in Scotland (Aberdeen).  

I've practised my speciality as a Dietetic Intern in multiple hospitals in Glasgow and in one of the largest hospitals in Europe - Queen Elizabeth University Hospital (QEUH).

My experience includes giving individualised dietary advice for patients with moderate to severe obesity, type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes, gestational diabetes, pancreatitis, IBS, ulcerative colitis and enteritis, alcoholic and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, various food intolerances, autoimmune diseases, coeliac disease, pre-and post-op patients, and many other conditions.  

I've consulted patients on parental and enteral nutrition in complex neurological, oncological, and surgical cases. I received training to work with NUTRICIA and Abbott Laboratories for parental and enteral nutrition.

Completed a monitoring course for LIBRE A5X in patients with diabetes, EETAS training for patients with eating disorders, as well as advanced training in different areas organised by the British Association for Parental and Enteral Nutrition (BAPEN). 

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC)

The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 14 professions.

They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.

Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.

Nutrition topics

Information about health conditions (*)

Nutritional therapy can help enhance the well-being of individuals diagnosed with serious medical conditions, but should not take the place of medical treatment and advice. If you have been diagnosed with - or suspect you may have - any of these conditions, please speak to your doctor before starting nutritional therapy or making any major changes to your diet or lifestyle.

Additional information

I offer a free 15-minute phone consultation for those who wish to discuss their needs before booking an appointment.

Please reach out to me via email to arrange this initial call. It serves as an opportunity for you to determine if you'd like to collaborate with me and if your nutritional requirements align with my expertise. 

Initial Dietetic Assessment: £90.00 (60-90 minutes)

This includes an assessment of the following:

  • Your anthropometric measurements (e.g., height, weight, BMI)
  • 24-Hours Food Recall/Your food diary (portions, food types, eating patterns, preferred cooking methods, access to food etc.)
  • Your past and present medical history
  • Recent biochemistry results, if applicable
  • Environmental factors & Your social life

SMART Goals will be established, focusing on Specific, Measurable, Accurate, Realistic, and Timely objectives. We will devise a plan tailored to your specific needs and desires.

A written summary of your consultation will be sent to you via email.

Follow-up Consultation: £50.00 (30-40 minutes)

This involves a review of your goals, progress, and additional guidance. The frequency of follow-ups will be determined based on your individual needs. For instance, weight management clients typically have follow-ups scheduled 2-3 weeks apart, while enteral nutrition patients may benefit from more frequent check-ins. Discounts are available when multiple follow-up consultations are booked together. Please note that prices may vary based on the patient's medical status, and they align with recommendations from the BDA (British Dietetic Association).
