I have yet to hear of any doctor asking about diet for anything but obvious conditions such as obesity, weight loss/gain, diabetes, gout and a few others. Through reading posts on this site for many conditions, it is apparent that many find dietary solutions to their ailments or at least that dietary changes or supplements have improved their wellbeing. Am I being too simplistic to wonder if questions about diet and a blood test for dietary deficienies should be standard practice for GP's? Having had Vit D defciency as a child (in the 1940/50's) with consequent treatment and now living in Scotland with insuffucent sunlight for daily needs, I now take supplements and feel the benefits. Fewer aches and pains and less lethargy. Am I mistaken or is it psychological?
