Would people with anemia and thalassemia experience more fatigue during diets that people without it? For example a ketogenic diet?
Address issues : If you have thalassemia minor and a very mild anemia as a result, it is a non-problem unless you marry someone else with it. If you have a second cause of significant anemia, it needs to be addressed. Unless the ketogenic diet is prescribed for epilepsy, please reconsider.

Even when persons with insulin-dependent diabetes (whether type 1 or type 2) are not eating it is still important that they take some Insulin to prevent their body from going into ketoacidosis.

Bland diets don't!: Bland diets were the staple of gastritis and ulcer treatment for years. They did not work. Paradoxically, spicy foods, stimulate the stomach with time to produce cytoprotective prostaglandings which inhibit gastritis and ulcer.

It also says you should eat no processed foods and to eat as organic and locally grown as possible. It allows for nuts and seeds. I call it the neo paleo because i allow for all types of vegetables, brown, black, or wild rice, potatoes, and yams. ...Read more
