    Hi

    I've just nipped over from the LL forum to ask a question on my mum's behalf (she's thinking of starting CD soon) Do you have to have anything signed by your doctor to be allowed to start CD?
    On LL you can't start without a medical form signed by your doctor but I'm not sure about CD (my mum's doctor is really against most diets especially VLCDs for some reason)

    Thanks in advance for your help

    Hi there

    You fill in a medical form when you register with your Counsellor but you don't need to have it signed by your doctor unless your BMI is over 40.

    Cheers

    The medical form has to be signed if the BMI is over 35.

    Also if the client has a medical condition.

    I thought it was BMI 40, my BMI was 37.5 and I didn't have to have the form signed by a Doctor?

    The form says BMI of over 35!

    I had to have mine signed anyway due to the medication that I take!
