Patricia, can you give me some rationale for "Lectin.....& I'd run the other way!"?

Comment by Patricia on February 16, 2018 at 6:04pm

Not my liver Joan....its my kidney function.

Thankfully we didn't have that dr for long, 18 months, & we're sure he never looked at our records after transferring them from our retired dr, who had been watching my kidney function for years. It was still normal, although a little on the low side, but nothing to worry about......until I took stuff prescribed for hip pain that I shouldn't have. How was I to know? They are the ones who we're supposed to trust!

We didn't like him from day one, although we tried. As soon as I saw the write ups last spring online about him while he was still in Ireland, I got transferring to another dr in the works, & we made the change in July.

It wasn't until my hip pre-op in October that the kidney thing was discovered from previous blood tests....& I was never told. That's when the questioning came up about what I had taken med wise.

I have blabbed about this to every medical person I've seen since, & they can do with it what they will, I don't have the energy. He has since moved out of Williams Lake.

We have a dr now who is much more cautious!


I just looked at the ingredient list on that Lectin.....& I'd run the other way!

Patricia, your report of the mistreatment caused by your doctor outrages me. I would be going to the licensing board with a report of what he prescribed and its consequence to your liver problems or his Rx created more complex problems. 

That said, I agree that we are what we eat. Just because something is called, "natural" doesn't mean it is healthy for human consumption or for some individuals with particular problems. According to this team of authors, they list these foods; do you agree with them?

I need your advice, Atheist Nexus Food Members. 

My son is a physically active, nutritionally conscious person and he recommends GUNDRY MD LECTIN SHIELD.

His wife, Mindy, is a personal trainer and works with or for the Denver Athletic Club and has her private clients. She recommends  GUNDRY MD LECTIN SHIELD.

I am skeptical. What say you?

I eat what my innards allow me to eat, & if its not on the permissible lists, then tough.

I am however making adjustments if I do have to do a kidney diet......which seems quite likely now.

Appreciate the comments (as always). One of the "dumb recommendations" was "no alcohol", not even a glass of wine--nary a drop. And no cheese (or crackers or nuts) to go with it? Geez Louise. No dark chocolate?

However, the book was meant for those people suffering from debilitating health issues. I think that excludes most of us--thankfully (not "thank god").

we make our own rules, according to info, common sense and our feelings about food.

I think at a certain age, many of us say to hell with the food rules.

My doctor did the usual blood work on me and it all came back good. Well, sort of. I'm sure they did a full smack as I also have a bad liver. Even the liver enzymes were looking good, they said, but they didn't understand my high triglycerides. 

I said to the nurse, "let me explain that to you. I'm a creature of habit and I take your meds but eat and drink whatever I want to."

Eat what you like as long as the body allows it, & to hell with the goods, bads, or otherwises. If bp & weight aren't an issue, don't worry about it. If it ain't broke.....well you know.
