South Carolina

South Carolina provides for the licensure of dietitians and protects the titles of “dietitian,” “licensed dietitian,” alone or in combination, or used with the letters “L.D.” or combination in any words, letters, abbreviations, or insignia. While the law protects titles, it does not place restrictions on who may provide nutrition care and holistic nutrition professionals may work within their scope of practice in South Carolina.
