Are you allergic to wheat or gluten, or do you suffer from celiac disease? Do you have other allergies or intolerances that make it difficult to plan meals? Do you struggle with making selections not only at the grocery store but also at restaurants and other eateries that you may not be very confident with?
We have many ways to assist you in planning meals and planning ahead for those outings where you may otherwise not have a pleasant experience. Let us help you devise a meal plan and other helpful measures so you can enjoy your eating and know you won't have any complications as a result!

Controlling your cholesterol and blood pressure are vital to good health and preventing heart disease or stroke. We are aware that cholesterol can be a tricky subject to fully understand, so we assist our clients with education and training to help them lower their cholesterol levels and keep them in the healthy range.
Exercise and participating in athletic activities not only help keep you in shape, it also helps your overall healthy being. A major component of exercising and working out involves proper nutrition to build muscle and strength.
At MDD, we advise you about the nutritional needs before and after working out, such as good carbohydrates, fats, proteins, vitamins and minerals, and fluids that your body needs to make your work out more productive and aid in recovery from a work out session.
What you eat affects your risk of developing heart disease and poor blood circulation, which can lead to strokes or heart attacks. Heart disease is the number 1 killer of American men and women, with strokes being number three. If you are already at risk of heart disease or stroke, you need to develop a diet and nutritional plan to prevent that risk from increasing. We assist our clients by educating them about foods and nutritional plans which are best suited and proven to help reduce their risk of heart disease and stroke.
Healthy kidneys are vitally important for the human body! When kidneys malfunction, you run the risk of renal failure, which can result in abnormal fluid levels in the body, deranged acidic levels, and heightened levels of potassium, calcium, hematuria (blood in urine), anemia, and even death.
Low FODMAP and High FODMAP diets help identify the lows and highs in lactose, fructose, fructans, and polyols. Foods such as cheese, fruits and vegetables, nuts and legumes offer choices in both the low and high FODMAP diet. Sometimes food sensitivities are difficult to track to the source causing the issue. We will work with patients by way of elimination to more accurately identify the source of the discomfort.
