Hello, I posted a similar question on side effects board, but wanted to ask here too about heart patients in general.
My husband has had a stent for 2 years and he really needs to loose 40 pounds (me 30 pounds) and we are starting the diet next week.
My doctor is supervising us both, and his doctor actually did the diet herself under the supervision of my doctor. My doctor's husband also did the diet and we saw him and didn't recognize him. We are sold on the effectiveness...BUT there is that concern in the back of my mind.
Has anyone else with a stent done this diet?
Have any heart patients done the diet and if so, did you take potassium?
Have any of you heard about arterial blood clots being caused by the diet? I read something on a women's health website yesterday, but there was no source and there was a bariatric surgery ad scrolling on the top of the page.
I really appreciate any and all responses to any of the above questions!
