Meet Lesley Reid,
Professional Nutritionalist & Dietitian
Lesley Reid Nutritional Health was launched by Glasgow based NHS Dietitian Lesley Reid BSc to provide expert tailored evidence-based support to those with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and related gastro conditions.
After graduating from Glasgow Caledonian University with a first-class honour’s degree in “Human Nutrition and Dietetics”, Lesley spent many years working in a range of NHS roles covering maternal health, diabetes care, nutritional support, weight management and specialist IBS clinics. She left the NHS for a temporary period in 2017to 2021 to concentrate on building her freelance dietetic company.
Lesley Reid Nutritional Health was started in 2015 after seeing the debilitating effects IBS can have on patients and the lack of specific support they were receiving. Lesley has since dedicated her career to supporting patients with complex gastro-related illnesses, empowering people through evidence-based strategies that can greatly improve their diets, health, lifestyle, and general wellbeing.
As well as running her own clinic, Lesley has consulted for weight loss companies, private medical hospitals. She has supported private gastro consultants as well as working with BBC Radio Scotland, appearing on STV and BBC Scottish News.
Lesley has also worked in partnership with companies supporting Asylum Seekers and The Prison Service. She has also delivered food, fluid and nutrition guidance as well as dysphagia training to care home staff and also supported a variety of private companies with staff wellbeing.
‘I am very lucky I LOVE being a Dietitian, it is one of the most diverse, interesting, and satisfying jobs. I get to work with such a wide range of clients, it is so rewarding to be able to map out their specific issues/needs and help them come to a solution to their issues.’
