    Hi all,

    I have an appointment to see my GP so he can (hopefully) sign my form. I have no idea what kind of reaction I will get from him, but in case he refuses or isn't too sure then I want to be prepared. Can anyone recommend any bumf that I can print off and take along with me that'll work in my favour? I have had a look at the NICE website, but I'm not too sure about what's what.

    Thanks!

    Article in times newspaper a while back, pointing towards studies suggesting cd etc. can be healthy option for those with lot of weight to lose. it was on a post here, have you looked at the news section. Google scholar searches do yield some results but it takes ages to trawl through to find the ones relevent. Good luck xx

    Your CDC should have given you a booklet entitled information for health care professionals.

    That has all the salient points that a Doctor needs to know. It may also be worth taking the Times article too...

    Hope you get a positive outcome!
