Summary General practitioners fall into three categories in their pursuit of dietary counselling: little involvement, or provider of referrals, or they have strong involvement. The barriers to dietary counselling are inadequate partnerships with dietitians, patients suffering multiple medical conditions and the view that HMG-CoA-reductase-inhibitors (statins) reduce the need for dietary change.
