5 years ago I was diagnosed with diabetes type 2. My response was pretty rapid, I threw out all my flour, pasta, rice and various sugars, lost 25kg and last year was classified as in remission, my blood sugar was under control from diet and exercise. It's probable my diabetes was caused by a reaction to the various statins I have been prescribed.
June this year diagnosed PCa and had my gland removed 4-Sep-19.
Sent home with not much information except a Uninary Catheter Care Passport, which has the following advice on diet.
1.5 to 2 liters of water, check.
Consider limiting alcohol and caffeine intake as this may irritate your bladder. First thing I was offered after surgery was a cup of tea or coffee.... I went for milk.
Eat a balanced, healthy diet.
Fibre can improve our bowel habit.... yes please God!!! Try to eat 5 portions of fruit and veg every day.
As a diabetic I don't eat carbohydrates, and fruit and some veg can be a problem.
This leaves fat and protein, which is what I eaten for the last 5 years.
In this forum I've noticed a number of folk excluding dairy and red meat from their diets. Is this directly related to PCa or just part of the trend against dairy and red meat?
