Our expert says:
I am sorry to hear of all your health problems, esp the CIDP. You don't mention who prescribed your diet for you? Was it a dietitian? If not, then PLEASE do 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). In view of your health problems and diabetes you need someone to monitor your diet and energy intake, but your diet also must contain sufficient protective nutrients to provide you with vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids and phytonutrients. Continue with the diet for the time being, BUT do consult a dietitian ASAP.
