Our expert says:
I am sorry to hear that you have osteo-arthritis, insulin resistance, PCOS, high bp, food allergies and have to take antidepressants and a mood stabiliser. This is indeed a complex medical situation and I trust that you are under constant medical supervision and receiving treatment for the osteo-arthritis, PCOS, high bp and insulin resistance. Because of the complexity of your conditions, I would urge you to consult a registered dietitian (visit the Association for Dietetics in SA Website at: www.adsa.org.za and click on "Find a Dietitian" to find a dietitian in your area). The dietitian will have to work out an individual diet prescription for you that addresses all your conditions and medications and also assists with weightloss. This is not something I can do for you over the Internet, so please consult a dietitian ASAP. If you click on 'DietnFood' at the top of this page and do searches using the key terms of each condition (e.g. Insulin resistance) then you will find articles outlining the dietary treatment of the different conditions.
I do hope that you will soon start feeling better and lose weight.
