I am not familiar with that particular doctor, but I know from friends, family, and from my own personal life that diet and exercise can reverse many health conditions. And I also know that it doesn't take long. In only a short time, the effects of adding more fruits, vegetables, and whole grains and fewer saturated fats and red meat can turn your life around.
This is a great place for encouragement. Good luck to you and welcome back to Sparkpeople.

HI All! I am back at SparkPeople after 2 years away and 20 extra pounds! I am too young to be on cholesterol and blood pressure medicine but have been for 5 years! Dr. Esselstyne of the Cleveland Clinic (you can listen to him on youtube - link below. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iEY5cdPhbU0 ) teaches that plant based eating can reverse medical conditions! He also says that plant based foods only- he is strict- really make dieting a thing of the past. Any interest (and encouragement) is welcome www.youtube.com/watch?v=iEY5cdPhbU0
