Dear Ess
Because of your multiple medical conditions, I would also recommend that you should consult a clinical 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), so that the dietitian can assess what you are eating and prescribe an individual slimming diet for you. The dietitian will also recommend if you should consider a gastric bypass or not because you have so much weight to lose.
Best regards
