When I started working as a dietitian with Hy-Vee 5 years ago, diagnosed individuals with Celiac Disease were just beginning to come across our radar. Now, as Celiac Disease awareness is increasing and physicians are more readily diagnosing the disease, it has become a daily part of my dietitian duties.
I am in contact with at least one person a day who has been affected by this disease. Whether you are newly diagnosed or currently have the disease, your Hy-Vee dietitian is here to help. We have designated Gluten-Free sections in our stores, a 46-page list of Hy-Vee Private Label Gluten-Free products for our customers to make shopping easier, cooking classes, product and recipe food experiences, support groups, personal shopping assistance, individualized nutrition counseling, and we will accommodate any gluten-free product request you have.
I, along with your other Des Moines Metro Hy-Vee Dietitians, truly want to help you live happier and healthier with Celiac Disease.
