This week, our dietitian Jinee, visited William who has had bed bugs for the past two weeks. His landlord has agreed to set up the bed bug treatment on Monday, but William has no idea how he is going to throw out his couch and bed let alone get new ones. William is 5’9” 110lbs. He has struggled for several months to build his weight and his strength. Right now, with the bed bug problem, he sleeps on his old leather office chair to stay away from the bed bugs, keeping him up all night, and adding one more barrier to his ability to achieve a healthier self.
Can you help William and other clients in similar predicaments?
