This case study requires use of the American Dietetic Association’s Nutrition Care Process.

Mr. Trigger, a 29-year-old male, and his healthy 32-year-old wife have been unable to conceive after two years of unprotected intercourse. Results of medical tests led Mr. Trigger to be diagnosed with male-factor infertility due to low sperm production. No other health problems were identified. His weight was assessed to be 260 lbs (118 kg) and his height measured 5 ft 10 in. (1.78 m).
