I didn't get a reply to my letter from the practice manager, the Dr rang me himself.
Whilst he was apologetic for the confusing contradictory diet advice I'd been given he also took the opportunity to push the Cambridge diet at me again. I asked that he go through my blood sugar levels again, he had to admit that I wasn't diabetic, but insisted that I will become so soon.
He claims that if I lose 15-20 kg in 6 weeks on the Cambridge diet my non-existent diabetes will be cured, I explained my reservations again but he is convinced that my lack of potassium, my diverticular disease, even my ear infection will be cured by 6 weeks of Cambridge!
I asked about just following a healthy eating plan & losing weight, he claims that weight loss alone will not cure me.
Personally, I think he's talking bollocks!!!
