Dear Sir/ Madam,
Re: Mr Felix Seastine, DOB:12 January 1956
I am writing on behalf of Mr Seastine, who is recuperating from coronary artery bypass surgery. He requires education on low cholesterol dietary guidelines along with healthy simple recipes to follow. More practical suggestions on managing acne on face was also recommended .
On 2 September 2009, he was admitted with diagnosis of obstructive coronary artery disease for which coronary artery bypass surgery was performed on 04 September 2009. Postoperatively he made good progress. Excellent mobilization and good healing process at the site of surgery was noticed.
Mr Seastine is a bachelor, resides in his own house. He smokes 20 cigarettes per day and consumes two 300ml beer bottles per day . His BMI is above normal and his dietary habits are fast foods containing high cholesterol levels and allergic to nuts and oily food. Due to excess hormone levels of testosterone his face looks warty along with excess acne for which he looks depressed; therefore, uses face creams and washes face more then 20-30 times per day.
He was recommended to stop smoking, alcohol intake and to follow low fat diet postoperatively but resistant to follow this advice. He has a follow up appointment to local GP Dr. Cinderella Austin, at 2 pm on 15 September 2009 and rehabilitation exercises to be continued by local physiotherapist.
Based on the above mentioned details, it would be greatly appreciated if you could provide information on low fat dietary guidelines and recipes follow at home as well as advice on acne .
If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact me.
