Please answer me. Is a gluten-free vegan diet healthy?

Please answer me. Is a gluten-free vegan diet healthy?

Must supplement: I admire vegans who undertake this for moral reasons, and some of them claim to feel much healthier. A gluten-free diet indisputably relieves celiac sprue and dermatitis herpetiformis and there is a minority belief that people not affected with these illnesses may improve their health by going gluten-free. Discuss this with your physician / dietician and don't force it on your children. ...Read more

Need help understanding my HSV results. HSV 1GG, Type Specific AB Result : 17.10 HSV 2GG , Type Specific AB Result : >23.00 What does this mean?

Need help understanding my HSV results.  HSV 1GG, Type Specific AB Result : 17.10 HSV 2GG , Type Specific AB Result : >23.00  What does this mean?

Reference range: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, it would have helped to know the normal or reference range from the lab that did the tests. However, it appears that you have been infected with both types of HSV. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more
