Shocking! You mean they are lying when they say their numbers are fine? Do you think they could be lying about other parts of their lifestyle?

Lying about eating less than 1000cal a day? (Southern lady voice fanning herself) "Well I never!"

Lying about working out for 4 hours a day? No way!

I dream about having four hours a day to work out. That would be awesome.

I used to work at a lab (not as a tech though) and I would have to call blood glucose levels of 30 mmol/L or greater (540mg/dl). Sometimes it would be me disturbing the same doctor over and over again, night after night, because the same patient was being reckless with their diet or insulin.

It was fun when I got to go back into the actual chemistry lab. I'd have to walk past racks upon racks of blood samples, and I always knew which ones came from fatties because they were lipemic.

That always blows my mind. How can they be even marginally aware of this phenomenon of their half-blood sludge lazily squishing through their bodies, and simply not give enough of a shit to lose weight?

If your blood isn't even really recognizable as blood, if you get cut and sugary fat comes out... what the fuck? I can't understand how someone could just not care, at that point.

"That's fat shaming. You can't tell Health from..."

I love how they're telling a health care professional that they can't tell health from visual inspections.

Yup. To be fair I can't tell diabetes from morbid obesity and ancanthosis nigricans. But the chances it isn't diabetes are so low I will seldom be wrong. It's definitely a symptom of an endocrine disorder. Usually insulin resistance.

Health care professional here. They will literally talk themselves blue in the face about how they're in perfect health, their blood pressures and sugars are perfect, they're completely fit, blah blah blah. When I've just literally taken their blood pressure or blood sugar. I've gotten to the point where I just hold up the glucometer and hold it dead in their face and point at the number. These people will talk happily about they are positive the bear is their friend even as it's eating their face off.

Thank you for posting, primarily because this reminds me that, even as a liberal arts/English-Studies & Education major, the GE requirements and elective science bio courses I took drilled us to visually look for clues/signs of medical issues/ill health. Biology 101, Anatomy, Medical Anthropology, Epidemiology, etcetera -- all of them, hell even plant science/botany! And now it's "shaming"??? On the bodies of individuals, in community settings - urban and rural factors indicating decline/disease, etc. JFC we will be down the shitter as a nation with no return ASAP if this continues...

Off topic from fat hate, to people with type 1 diabetes (the genetic kind): Use your glucose meter on restaurant sodas to check if you got diet or regular. Diet returns an error, regular gives a reading.

Back on topic: They know they are unhealthy, but go to any and every extreme to avoid admitting it. "My numbers are FINE" it shrieks, with a glucose reading of 305, a BMI of 50+ and blood pressure 210/150. Sorry fatty, you saying fine doesn't make it that way. But don't worry, we'll attend your funeral and laugh at your double-wide coffin.

But eating 30,000 calories a day has NO effect on weight, it's all random! Tubblr told me so, the doctor is an idiot! /s

When I was briefly diabetic (steroid induced) after eating my glucose would rarely top 160. Ham nurse checked me once and I had a glucose of 200+. So she gave me two doses of insulin before bed. I woke up, sort of, with a glucose of <30. Fat bitch nearly killed me. Ham nurse then tries to feed me a butterfinger bar when I can't even keep my eyes open or head up. Luckily shitlady nurse brings in some juice and chocolate milk and helps me drink it before sending me downstairs for a CT scan to make sure my brain wasn't swelling.

You should never give a patient insulin as a first treatment.

First line treatment for diabetes is metformin, regular testing, and time.

Maybe it's because I haven't ecountered super massive deathfats yet, but during my intern time*, the first thing they recommended was almost always an appointment with the dietician and one of the personal trainers. Usually that ended up with a diet and fitness plan. Though most of the people I got to see were only borderline diabetic (like 6.5-7 mmol/l - 117-125 mg/dl).

*currently in med school, we get to look over the shoulders of the professionals a couple times a year over in the university hospital

Well I was inpatient and also had vasculitis and HSP going on as well as end stage liver failure. I was actually admitted because of a burst esophageal varice. But even I knew you're not supposed to dose before sleep or ever double dose. I said so and she assured me she knew what she was doing. She did not, obviously. I'm pretty sure my mom requested she never care for me again. That happened to two nurses, both hams. First one kept trying to force the plunger down on a syringe after I repeatedly told her the iv was bad. She ended up blowing a vein open in my arm that bruised up my entire arm. When the good nurse pulled the IV it was kinked in half in the vein.

And for those that ask, we never sued. This was 2007 and my parents didn't want to burn bridges at that hospital because they were the only ones who could treat me. It's nearly a decade later and I'm doing pretty well. Diabetes went away after about 2 months. Only used insulin once but maintained my glucose with a meter and a notebook until they said it was gone.

It sounds weird, but I don't understand why people who get type 2 don't just, well, fix it! I did it pretty quick. Hell my grandma who's 78 reduced her a1c to 6, which is just barely qualifying as diabetic. I guess it could be harder for some people but for hams I just have no sympathy.
