  1. Consult your physician to advise them of dietary changes and to arrange medical follow up and blood work as needed. They should provide instruction with regards to any necessary changes to medications while undergoing dietary changes. IDM provides dietary guidance only and takes no responsibility for any medical decisions. That discussion is between your physician and yourself.  Please see the video from Dr. Fung at the bottom of this page on the importance of fasting with medical supervision.
