Is this my answer about changing my diet?
Doctor: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 8 months ago

I was trying to come up with other answers too

but yes, cleaning up your diet will help a lot

have you read the book "eat to live"? by joel fuhrman?

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
No. I haven’t but will look it up. What do you mean about cleaning up my diet. No sugar and All carbs or just a reduction of them
Doctor: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 8 months ago

any processed sugar needs to be eliminated

no simple sugar and only complex carbs

make sense?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
