Avoid grains!: I agree with dr.Rothman ..... There is a lot of new research explaining that grains are the culprit leading to inflammation, high triglycerides, elevated liver enzymes, etc. Look into dr. Mark hyman, dr. Michael eades or dr.Loren cordain for some great research and information! you can take control of your health if you learn about good nutrition!

Emotion?: Before concluding that diet is the problem, i'd invite you to take a hard look at whether the ways of thinking and acting that enabled you to survive in whatever environment you grew up are perhaps now not working well for you. Anxiety, impotence and hypertension all suggest that life itself is treating you cruelly and perhaps your physician can hlep you find ways to beat it. Please consider.
