Its alright for an Orthopaedic Surgeon in Sweden to recommend LCHF. It’s also interesting to read his story of personal health as part of his awakening.
I seem to end up trying to talk many patients out of surgery. Strange behaviour from a surgeon.
Earlier this year I saw a lady that was all prepared for joint replacement. I didn’t think her weight or diabetes was ‘optimal’ and gave her the LCHF ‘talk’.
Four months have gone by and she has had a reasonable go at LCHF but doesn’t have it right,yet. She has lost about half a kg and was disappointed in that. However her waist size has dropped a lot and her clothes are hanging off her.
The important thing is her pain is so much better. That’s without the weight loss. I see this regularly – the pain improves which really points to the inflammatory load of our food intake… and to the benefits of LCHF in arthritis.
