I have an appt with Dr Esselstyn on Oct 19th to review my records and analyze my diet. My own cardiologist is aware and has given me some leash,and an iso sorbide. To be a little more specific about my adherence,I was 100% adherent from Jan 1st to Feb 14th. Then I was 100% adherent to no meat,chicken,fish or dairy,but I was eating cakes and candy bars and lots of fruit like they were going to be extinct.Also a lack of vegetables. That lasted from Feb 14th til Jun 21st with a big increase in angina with exertion or anxiety. From Jun 21st til today I have been 90-95% adherent,no sweets,cut back on fruit,added much more veggies. No change or reduction in angina that I can tell. My final hope is that it's my non 100% compliance that is the culprit. Could limited veggies and 6 servings of fruit a day be the problem. A lot of sugar in that fruit and I'm wondering if it's part of the answer. Thanks.
