When you consult with your health care provider before you begin your transition, you should discuss with him/her any medication you are taking to manage a condition. Transitioning to a whole-food, plant-based diet/lifestyle or adding intermittent fasting may result, in possibly a very short time, in improvement in your condition for which you are taking medication, and your doctor may decide to adjust your medications and/or dosage. This is not because of a problem with the lifestyle. It is because your health may improve and as a result you may need a different dosage than you’re taking now. It is very important that you and your doctor monitor the situation so you take only the amount of medication you need.
