RUSSELL, I started a low carb with a dietician almost a month now so I am really glad to here about the results you have achieved. I go back on 12/13. I have been doing good, my cravings for sweets has gone emoticon . Variety seems to be my biggest challenge right now. I find I keep eating the same things every day.....pretty boring. I would love to hear from you about any advice you can give me.

Been a rough month. My brother had the flu, and had to spend 2 days in the hospital, and I was having trouble breathing, so I checked in Saturday night. It was bronchitis, and they prescribed Prednisone, and Azithromycin, along with a flu shot. I had my pneumonia shot last year.

They did another echo, and reconfirmed my 45% ejection fraction. They are still amazed that it went from 16% to " over 45% ". From 2001-2009 it went from 16% to 19%.Since starting low carb though, it has more than doubled. As I was lying there Sunday morning ( I sleep terribly at hospitals), I read the chart on how to improve my heart. Lower BP, lower weight, and manage diabetes. My BP was 95/58, I have lost 136 lbs on low carb, and been off diabetes meds for 30 months now. All these improvements have occurred since starting low carb 3.5 years ago.

So they were really happy. My Digoxin, and Coumadin were low, which they corrected, and they checked my cardiac enzymes, and said no heart damage. Gave me some pills, and I was out after 18 hours. They said it was just a bump in the road, and said not to wait a week to come in next time. My breathing is good today, and I am doing just walking during the week. An hour today, then up to 90 minutes on Thursday, and finally some basketball on Saturday, if I feel good.
