Re: [IP] Dietary concerns

You could be so right! I've only known him the last 5 years, and he's just 
always been thin.

I just read this post to him, and he mentioned that his doctor 20 years ago 
mentioned something about having protein in his urine, but didn't say 
anything else. So this could have been brewing for years! He hasn't gone to 
the doctor in years, so who knows!

I don't have anything to test for ketones (shame on me), but I'm going out 
now to get some, just for the record. If he has keytones, that might also 
serve to get the doctor moving on prescribing medicines earlier... like 
Monday would be nice!
