HB 4045 would allow only licensed
dietitians can practice dietetics or medical nutrition therapy. “Dietetics” is
here defined to include the sciences of nutrition, biochemistry, food,
physiology, health management; “medical nutrition therapy” is defined as the
nutritional diagnostic assessment and nutrition therapy services for the
purpose of disease management. Four of the five board members will be registered
or licensed dietitians, and since the exam to qualify for licensure will be
board-determined, it will almost certainly be the ADA exam. All other
requirements are the same as the ADA’s. Practicing without a license would
fetch a fine of between $100 and $1000, or a jail sentence of up to six months.
