2 days ago I received a phone call from my Respiratory specialist in Brisbane who told me i had 3 lung diseases, lung function at 54% and one of the best options for me was to go on a low fat, gluten free, high protein diet and start losing more weight immediately. I weigh a lot and have already lost 22 kgs in the last 2 years. I have been sufferring chronic recurrent chest infections and severe asthma attacks which result in trips to the local hospital at least once a week. I am on nebulised salbutamol, atrovent and tobramycin antibiotics and oral prednisolone daily.
I cried for 2 hours after the news and he told me i was looking at losing my right lung and dying if i didnt start doing something now. I am 36 and have a list of allergies as long as my arm. I would like any input from those in this community.
