Jaeme, I’m so sorry to hear about your troubles with doctors on top of everything else. I struggled with traditional drug-pushers for many years. Your profile says you’re in the Midwest — if you’re close enough to western WI I could give you the name of my current doctor. If not, I could suggest ways to find a good one. It also depends on your insurance situation.
Also, I used to have a terrible appetite, until I started the diet, and I could give suggestions for dealing with that if you want.
As far as ketosis, I’m having another round of labs this week, so I’m going to ask my doctor to test for that also.
