Dear Lee-Ann
Please tell your friend that she and her family should consult a clinical dietitian (phone (012) 998-5650 (mornings) for the name and address of your nearest dietitian), because anyone with multiple conditions such as high cholesterol and diabetes should have individual diets worked out for them. It will be well worth their while to do so.
