please don't do what i do
not your typical compliant patient !
my diet consists of lots of fat - meat, eggs, and dairy are a big part of my diet - carbs are in there too - but mostly what i focus on is healthy foods - local, free range, grass feed, etc - my numbers are excellent and have been for a long time -
i had a valve put in a year ago but it was a genetic thing according to the experts - my arteries are all great, no blockages, etc.
my point is, we are all different and our needs are different - the one size fits all medical mentality just doesn't work -
dx'd with pancolitis 12/21/03
