This is my first post. Dx Bi-Polar about a month ago and Rx Trileptal 450mg/day. I am on the manic end of the disease and don't really hit the low lows that some do. So far, the meds have stabalized me although I do miss having a personality and a little bit more energy to get things done
. It still is a good trade-off to hopefully never have another scary manic/mixed episode again!
My question is this: Has anyone experimented with particular diets for relief of some symptoms of bi-polar? 10 yrs ago or so, before I knew I was bipolar, I went on a diet very similair to a diabetic diet (balancing carbs/protiens/fats)and I never felt better. Thinking back on it, I had a long period of even mood during that time.
I plan to take control of this disease and not let it control me and I suspect that the proper diet can help greatly. I'd love to hear some feedback on this.
