Hope you're all doing ok? I've been seeing a new team in Portsmouth as my local didn't know what else to do to help me. I was supposed to be refered to Brompton but one of my consultants team used to work with Portsmouth asthma specialists and thought they could help, anyway this is getting away from the point, this new team are brilliant done so many more tests than my local team already and will be doing many more quite quickly but they have referred me to an asthma dietician and I see her next Monday. At first I was thinking it's because I'm on a high dose of steroids and my weight is a bit up and down (mainly up unfortunately) but then at my appointment with the consultant yesterday he said "oh so you will see the dietician next week, we want you to try a sulphite free diet" (apologies if I spelt sulphite wrong)
Being only human I've googled this and it seems to be mainly prepackaged food so it basically means fresh food, I'm not going to change it till I've seen the dietician so she can talk me through it all but has anyone else tried this? Is it easy? And most importantly was it beneficial? I'm vegetarian as well as not being able to eat nuts or seeds. So I eat a lot of vegetables and fruit and a lot of pasta. I also have a ridiculously sweet tooth.
I will happily do anything that will help me be healthier at the moment, I've just never heard of it before so I'm curious.
It looks so nice outside today, hope everyone can enjoy it. My chest is real iffy been awake a lot of the night so I might have to enjoy it from the inside looking out while I sort it out. But long as I can stay home and not go to the hospital I'm happy.
