    Hi all.

    Just got my CD booklet in from my CDC. It says I have to contact my doctor before I can start CD regardless of BMI so that my GP can monitor if they feel the need to.

    Did anyone else do this? And did you need a note or letter of confirmation about this for your CDC?

    Says at the end of the SS booklet to consult your GP. Maybe I'll phone my CDC.

    Is it a new book or does it relate to being on meds/ underlying conditions etc?

    If you are on any medication, or have a BMI of 40+ you need a doctors signature

    If you are going to be doing SS, your CDC will send a letter to the doctor to inform them

    Virtually all diets add a message about consulting the doctor when embarking on a weight loss or exercise programme :) I don't think many people do though and you will not be prevented from doing the diet if you don't, unless the medication/BMI40+ thing applies

    Phoned CDC, she said she doesn't think I'll need to contact my GP unless I have any problems.
