I have a medical condition/question and need advice about nutrition. Can you help?

Veganuary is not a medical organisation and we are not medical professionals, so unfortunately we cannot provide any type of medical advice to our participants. If you have a concern about your health, we strongly suggest speaking to your GP or a registered dietician who is sympathetic to plant-based eating. You can also find information on vegan-friendly doctors and dieticians here.
