Hi -- I have been planning to go vegan for a few months now to help save my kidneys -- but this was interrupted by multiple cardiac arrests in June, a diagnosis of AFib, and the insertion of a pacemaker and a defibrillator (ICD). I am pretty much ok with that now, so I started on the vegan plan this week. When I was in the hospital I spoke with a few different cardiologists about changing my diet instead of taking a statin drug, and they all gave me their blessing. Each said that he had patients who got a lot better by going on Dean Ornish's plan (How To Reverse Heart Disease), and the Michael Greger plan I chose, How Not To Die Of Heart Disease.
Have any of you guys gone vegan after being diagnosed, and how is it working for you?
