WHAT WE DO

You are in charge of your own health and healthcare.

 

Because we believe this, Healthy Agendas takes a different approach to dietetics and nutrition. 
We don’t tell you what to do.  Instead we believe you should be the successful leader of your own wellness team.
To do this we educate you...

 

                                                  • about the disease process affecting your body

                                                  • about food and exercise

                                                  • about the tools necessary for healthier choices

 

We take the mystery out of food and leave you instead with choices. Are your choices
based on good nutrition? Do you have health problems that would be helped by changing your diet?
These are just two of the questions that the professionals at Healthy Agendas deal with daily.

 

Ask your healthcare provider for a prescription or referral (depending on your insurance plan)
to meet with the experts. Look to Healthy Agendas for accurate and helpful advice.

 

DIABETES MELLITUS:

Diabetes is a patient-managed disease. Diabetes self-management
education is strongly recommended by the American Diabetes
Association.  It provides an overview of physiology, medications,
exercise, diet and glucose monitoring and how they all work
together to keep you healthy.

 

For example, has anyone ever told you “don’t eat carbs?” Well that’s
incorrect!! Carbs are an important part of a healthy diet. They can’t be
avoided. But they can be carefully chosen and consumed in moderation.

 

Medical Nutrition Therapy educates you on how good food choices help
control glucose levels and incorporates any other health issues into a plan.

Healthy Agendas’ staff can develop food plans for you or simply teach you how to eat so you are          
still enjoying food while pursuing good health.          

PRE-DIABETES:

Diabetes is a family problem so know your family history. If your
fasting glucose levels are 101-125mg/dl, you may have pre-diabetes,
otherwise known as Impaired Glucose Tolerance. Changing your lifestyle
may prevent or delay the onset of Diabetes.

WEIGHT MANAGEMENT:

Ask yourself: how many times have you been on a “diet”? How much
money have you spent on weight loss programs? Are you still struggling
with your weight? Why is that? Maybe it’s time to ask for professional
advice. We can help you evaluate your goals and help you develop a plan
that works for your way of life. There is more to successful weight management than simply eating less.

SOME ADDITIONAL HEALTH ISSUES:

Chronic Kidney Disease can be helped with nutritional intervention.
There are times when there may be potassium, sodium, and/or protein restrictions needed. A physician’s prescription defines the course of action.

 

Reactive Hypoglycemia is recurring low blood sugars that may
cause a variety of symptoms including weakness, feeling shaky,
dizzy, irritable, anxiety that comes on rapidly. Nutrition intervention
can prevent these instances.

          Gastrointestinal Problems include Celiac Disease, GERD (Reflux), Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Crohn’s
          Disease, Ulcers, Gastritis, and Lactose Intolerance to name a few. Specialized diets are the first line of
          dealing with such conditions.

 

          Elevated Fat Levels (Hyperlipidemia) include Cholesterol, Triglycerides, HDL (good cholesterol)
          LDL (bad cholesterol).  While some hyperlipidemia is genetic, attention to diet can dramatically
          lower levels of fat in the body.

 

          Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)

          Abnormal Weight Loss Due To Decreased Appetite

          Gastric Bypass Evaluation

 

          These are but a few, but the most common, conditions that can be modified, moderated, managed and
          maybe eliminated through careful dietary analysis and treatment.
