Don't quote me on this, but if you get a bachelors in dietetics I think you can then go back to get a masters in dietetics specializing in metabolics.

I am currently studying nursing and later I may go back to school to get a masters in metabolic dietetics. My dietitian told me that today it is becoming more common for PKU patients to be seen by an RN that specializes in metabolics rather than the actual doctor…but most patients are still seen by a metabolic dietitian as well.
