Dear Mich
The Weighless programme is excellent for losing weight in a balanced way. However because of your complex set of conditions, I would strongly advise you to consult a clinical dietitian (check the List of Dietitians on this Website or phone 082-593-0276 or send an e-mail to or look in your local telephone directory or Yellow Pages, to find a dietitian in your area). The dietitian will help you by working out a specific diet which takes your raised cholesterol levels, kidney infections and overweight into account.
