I'm going to ask my doctor about this on Monday, at my regular appt., but would like some feedback here. DH's diet is horrible. He eats out once a day during the work week. He likes meat, potatoes and rice and grains (breads,etc.). He also loves breakfast foods. He really doesn't like that many vegetables and cannot have any dark green veggies while he is on coumadin therapy for the blood clots. During his hospitalization for pulmonary embolisms the doctor started him on a vitamin D3 supplement, 5,000 IUs. I've been taking the vitamin D3 for years. I've been working on improving my diet for a couple of months now. I can't have gluten or dairy products. I don't like the gluten free stuff, so I just do without. In the last two weeks I had confined my meals to no pre-processed foods. I'm only eating meat, fresh veggies, fruit, oatmeal, rice, eggs and nuts. My one concession is Lay's potato chips. The plain ones only. I got it in my head that perhaps a B-complex supplement with be beneficial for both DH and I, but now I wonder. Considering that we both eat meat and free range eggs, is a B supplement really necessary? We both also take one gram of vitamin C through the winter. I've been doing this for the past 20 years and strongly feel it helps keep winter colds at bay.
