Should I Be Concerned My Doctor Doesn't Know What A Vegan Is?

I was so astounded, lol. She was asking me about my diet. 'I'm Vegan.'

*Blank stare*

'I don't drink milk or eat cheese, stuff like that'

*Blank stare* 'How much milk do you drink?'

'None, I'm vegan.'

*Blank stare*

'I drink almond milk...'

*Confused look* Lol, we gave up.

That's great to hear Trevor, maybe I'll have to educate her!

Where do you live?  I would be concerned, but I guess I should not be surprised.  If you know more about your lifestyle and diet then your physician, I'm not sure how much trust and faith you can have in there abilities to treat you?  Now that I think about it, my doctor has never even asked?  Probably something they should know?  Thanks for the reminder..

@ Julie, I live in Oklahoma. Not surprising I guess since we're battling for one of the highest obesity rates. Haha no problem.

@JC that's good you have a doctor who seems to have some common sense! And good luck :)
