What is the difference between a Nutrologist and a Nutritionist?

Although these two areas work with Nutrition, the Nutrologist is a doctor, so he has been in medical school for 6 years and then specializes in Nutrology or Clinical Nutrition. Therefore, the Nutrologist's approach focuses on a medical view, different from the Nutritionist who is not a doctor.
