It's so sad: As far as I know, I`m not allowed red meat, tomatoe, vinegar, chilli, salt, sugar, no white bread or rice, no potatoes, no red wine (my favourite!), no beer, no oil, no butter, no margarine......no coffee, no milk (soya only)...hmmm. what have I left out?..oh ...no LIFE!!!!! Whats a girl to do? I'm seriously upset about this because I am only 47, but I come down with the most gawd-awful aches and pains and I might slit my wrists if I have to live like this for the next 40 years! Anybody got someuseful information please? Maybe some nice recipes? I would really appreciate it. Without good food and wine..life sucks :(

Just thank the Almighty that you haven't been diagnosed with more conditions! I'm 53 and have just been diagnosed Diabetic and with High Blood Pressure. My list basically mirrors yours. Food in the grocery stores specifically designed for our conditions is (HOW MUCH?) Medications, doctors appointments, time and transportation all cost us so much ya really wonder if your going to follow all this. I feel your pain! Please keep us informed! I will too.
