Ask The Dietitian (NEW)
Do you have unanswered general nutrition questions about the gluten-free diet and lifestyle?
Melinda Dennis is NCA’s Senior Dietitian Consultant and is happy to answer them. Look for answers on the website and in the following month’s e-newsletter.
How to send your questions:
Please submit questions that are applicable to a general gluten-free audience. We regret that personal clinical questions (medical history, labs, supplements, etc.) cannot be addressed.
Time allowing, every effort will be made to answer submitted questions by the next month’s e-newsletter but may be delayed.
Questions related to children or teens (17 years old and under) will be sent to clinicians at Boston Children’s Hospital and may require more time.
