"Diet advice for health"

About: Leatherhead Hospital

I saw a lovely lady dietician this week. She gave me some very good basic advice and a lot of hope that I can eat myself better and avoid a gallstone operation next week. I should add this is because she realised very quickly that the symptoms I have been suffering are most likely due to Coeliac Disease after all - which can be managed with a gluten free diet. I still have to undergo the relevent tests but the Op has been postponed and will not happen if all goes well. Giving me even a little bit of hope and optimism made my day!
