I was experiencing regular dermatitis flare ups all over my arms and legs for almost two years. During that time I visited a number of doctors, all of whom treated my symptoms with steroid pills and steroid creams. Discussions about potential causes such as my diet never occurred. Eventually I read about Functional Medicine and visited Dr. Brent Caplan who helped me find the root cause of my dermatitis. The flare ups were being triggered by eating foods containing soy. Now that I know to avoid soy, my dermatitis has cleared up and I haven’t had any further need for steroids.My other problem was high triglycerides, which peaked at 376. My current blood test shows that my triglycerides are now at a very normal level of 106. By following Dr. Caplan’s individualized recommendations, I’ve also lost weight and have lots more energy.Dr. Caplan also created an individualized plan to treat my husband’s diabetes and heart disease. My husband’s blood glucose levels were in the 180 range prior to seeing Dr. Caplan and currently his blood glucose has been averaging around 110. My husband’s HS-CRP, which is associated with relative cardiovascular risk, was initially off the charts at 13.8. His current blood test shows an HS-CRP level of 0.2. Yes, less than 1. Thank goodness!My husband and I have been following Dr. Caplan’s recommendations for 12 weeks now and the results have been simply extraordinary. Both of us are very grateful for Dr. Caplan and his friendly, knowledgeable staff for helping us regain our health.
