I'm just not sure, jellybeans. I'm going to pay more attention to this going forward. And, of course, I'm not going to change a thing regarding what supplements/meds she is taking.

I eat a lot of Lean Cuisine and Healthy Choice meals. The sodium level is not too high, based on the average daily value of sodium. For example, my Healthy Choice Roast Turkey Breast Dinner tonight has 460 mg sodium, which is 19% of the 2400 mg listed for the average person. The experts recommend no more than 100 mg sodium per 100 calories. The sodium is a little high for this meal, but most of my other food is very low in sodium.

This compares to 1000-2400 mg of sodium per meal for other brands of frozen entrees and frozen pizza. And we don't know how much sodium is in our favorite fast food burger and fries.

I think Lean Cuisine is good on both. It's a little hard to tell on preservatives, though. Some might be concealed in "natural-sounding" names.

We do eat a lot of Lean Cuisine, pasta, fruit, and salad, so to some degree we follow the Mediterranean diet. We should eat more fish, though.

I suspended fish oil because it added to diarrhea problems. Now that everything is under control in that regard, I might try using it again. (There was a study out that concluded fish oil does not benefit people who already have AD).

My personal philosophy is that anything (not invasive major surgery, but healthier eating and supplements) that can be done to improve general health should be done.
