Island Nutrition, Limited
Hanah Cannon - is a Registered Dietitian at Island Nutrition whose specialist areas include gastroenterology, hepatology, oncology, nutrition support, diabetes, general dietetics and home visits.
As a lover of good food (especially good baking) a nutrition-based career was a natural choice. She has a wide range of experiences to share and has worked with clients to change their diet and lifestyles to improve management of diabetes, coeliac disease, kidney disease, irritable bowel syndrome and cardiac conditions.
She has worked in specialist centers in Leeds and Liverpool, helping to build people up nutritionally for surgery for bowel, liver, stomach or head & neck cancers as well as liver transplants. She has also cared for patients after operations, providing nutritional programs on critical care wards in hospital or dietary education about management of new stomas, wound healing and advice aiming to prevent recurrence of disease.
With so much nutritional advice available in newspapers, television or social media, it's hard to know what to believe. As a registered dietitian, the advice you get from me will be clear and based on evidence, meaning it is safe and effective.
I graduated from Coventry university, England in 2015 with a Bsc honors in Dietetics. I am originally from Ireland but have spent my dietetic career (up until now!) working in Leeds, England, which is one of the largest teaching hospitals in Europe.
I have previously worked on the surgical inpatient wards seeing a variety of patients who were both pre and post surgery. This included head and neck, upper gastrointestinal, pancreatic, urological and colorectal patients.
Currently, I work at Island Nutrition providing a range of specific nutritional advice to help with Diabetes, weight management and cardiovascular disease (to name a few!)

She’s been teaching traditional Hatha yoga for 25 years and 8 years ago did her aqua yoga teacher training and has been teaching in the pool ever since!!

It is also so soothing to the nervous system. Enjoy
