Managing long term health issues

Blood pressure too high? Blood glucose or cholesterol a concern? Managing a long-term health issue can be frustrating and, with the current cost of medication, expensive. Americans spent $234.1 billion in prescription drugs in 2008, twice as much as in 1999. Nearly 40 percent of Americans over 60 take five or more prescription drugs.

Feel better and become as healthy as you can be

Sound nutrition can dramatically affect chronic health issues, including diabetes, high blood pressure, cholesterol, heart disease and more. Good nutrition helps your body work to fight disease and strengthens the immune system. Small changes in eating habits can help you feel better and may reduce or eliminate the need for certain medications. The Good Nutrition Dietitian can work in tandem with your physician to design an effective medical nutrition plan for optimal health and translate the diet your doctor ordered into practical use.
