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 management and improving the practical aspects and nutritional adequacy of diets requiring exclusions, for example coeliac disease and food allergies.

Dr Sue Reeves and I co authored 'The Study Skills Handbook for Nutritionists and Dietitians' publication date April 2022

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 areintersted in and have published studies exploring dietetic outcomes, patient preference for online or face-to-face appointments and annual review provision for adults with coeliac disease across the UK.

Online survey for adults with Coeliac diesease: Finding useful information for living gluten free

Adults with coeliac disease may benefit from probiotics, and particularly their cholesterol lowering impact. We are inviting adults with coeliac disease who are interested in knowing their cholesterol level and would consider joining a study to see if a probiotic supplement can help them.
