Personal profile


Dr Yvonne Jeanes' healthcare background includes working as a dietitian in the NHS and private setting. I enjoy enthusing students about clinical nutrition, delving into the challenges of nutrition in practice and research.

My research focuses on improving the evidence base for dietary mangement and improving the practical aspects and nutritional adequacy of diets requiring exclusions, for example coeliac disease and food allergies.


Research projects

Living gluten free:

Our team at Roehampton are investigating practical factors which influence gluten free dietary adherence in people with coeliac disease. We have presented data on the cost and availability of gluten free foods within the UK and factors associated with gluten free dietary adherence. Our studies are informing UK government policy on prescribing gluten free foods.

Coeliac UK sponsored dissertation, jointly supervised with Adele Costabile, has funded the laboratory analysis of calcium and iron in gluten free foods.

We are currently exploring dietetic outcomes, patient preference for online or face-to-face appointmenta and annual review provision for adults with coeliac disease across the UK.

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS):

PCOS is one of the leading causes of fertility problems in women and, if not properly managed, can lead to additional health problems such as diabetes in later life. Dietary and lifestyle management have been shown to improve symptoms, and weight management is advocated as the primary therapy in overweight women with PCOS.
