While I did not have a fantastic diet before, nothing out of the ordinary, and
while I did not drink every day, I have been a wine and
beer drinker since I was in college (I am 34 now). I have stopped all alcohol, caffeine, any extra high sugars and processed food intake since a couple weeks before I got sick enough to go to the ER. I have definately taken this very seriously and been, i think, good about listening to my body on this one, albeit a bit late in the game perhaps.
