Miss Nusrat Kausar
Hello, my name is Nusrat (BSC, PG Cert).
I am an expert in nutrition in a range of areas particularly, diabetes (all types) and sport and exercise nutrition. I am a HCPC registered dietitian and sport and exercise nutritionist, who is on the SENr graduate register based in the Bradford/Leeds area of West Yorkshire. I also do some work currently for the NHS as a Diabetes Dietitian in GP surgeries as a PCN Dietitian.
I am able to offer virtual consultations across the UK. As a registered dietitian (since 2008), my career has spanned the NHS, private sector and voluntary sector working in various specialist clinical areas, diabetes clinical practice and health promotion. I have extensive experience of using behaviour change skills and motivational interviewing to help clients meet their goals. I am passionate about helping individuals meet their health and nutrition goals in type 2 diabetes, helping with weight loss and remission – using low carb, very low carb diets or very low calorie diets (with liaison with your team if on medications which cause hypos). I can support with your cultural or religious dietary preferences.
For people doing sport and exercise, I can support individuals or groups to personalise nutrition around training to improve performance or optimise nutrition for physical performance. I have a particular interest in supporting people with type 1 diabetes looking to improve their sports performance using nutrition strategies.
