This was on the 10o’clock news last night, frightening as you say. Particularly as it is now a growing problem in developing countries, not just wealthy ones.

I avoided diabetes too, thank goodness. And I know of several people who’s diabetes has disappeared post wls. But I don’t know what the solution is really, if the population is getting fatter and more sedentary as well as diets being full of junk food and sugar, things can only get worse. We are the lucky ones.

Aren’t we just Chris?

It seems almost unthinkable that people in Asian countries are now getting morbidly obese. They were seen as the paragon of good health, fitness and longevity. Until fast food outlets moved in. I think that tells us everything we need to know. The worst thing, in my humble opinion, is that we are seeing a whole generation of children who will not outlive their parents. That means a whole generation of parents who will face the agony of attending their children’s funerals. I truly cannot think of anything more horrendous.

I believe the food manufacturers are to blame, I honestly do. I think they have been putting addictive, poisonous crap in our foods for years, just like the tobacco industry did. The more addicted we become, the more money they make.

Ooops, sorry, right up on my soapbox here! I just feel so strongly about it. Diabetes is a silent killer like heart disease and if wls can help with putting it into remission, then why doesn’t every diabetic get referred for it? Once the body is healthier, the mind can be treated because obesity is very much a psychological issue in my opinion.

Flippin heck, I’m on one today! And all before 08:00 haha! Better get another brew to calm me down 🙂
