I was on /r/ fatlogic recently and saw a post regarding a "woman" with a BMI of 42(holy fuck!!!) who had TD2 since she was 14 years old and she described diabetes as "kind of inconvenient" despite the fact that she was insulin dependent.

Also she thought her doctor was just "fat shaming" her when he told her to lose weight... All of this despite the fact that she mentioned her aunt had recently had a foot amputated due to diabetes.

If I find the link I'll post it.

Haha I think that is the beast who claimed she was healthier than 90% of the "cardio bunnies" at the gym

This reminds me of a thought I had the other day. I was thinking back to how through the 90s, growing up, being diabetic was talked about in hushed voices and considered so shameful, like smoking or being HIV/AIDS positive. Now it's dropped lightly in conversation and, as you showed, thought more along the same lines of a cold that will pass in time. Fuck no though. This "cundishun" will rot away your limbs, your eyes and eventually kill you. Not soon enough though.

I know dude. My dad has T1D. He was born with 1/3 of a pancreas and this disease impacts his daily life. Yet as you mentioned some people mention it more along the "same lines of a cold that will pass with time".

My dad has family members who have literally gone blind/had limbs amputated as a result.

FUCK FATS! JUST CONTROL YOUR SUGAR INTAKE YOU FUCKING INBREEDS!

Oooh good question.

Limb amputation: some combination of cellulitis from peripheral neuropathy and decreased blood flow resulting in repeat non-healing wounds, and painful tissue ischemia (lack of oxygen to tissue due to decreased blood flow).

Truly Lord Beetus is a benevolent god.

PDNs are actually treatable if you catch them in time. Fats make it impossible to figure out as "everything" hurts leaving you run around in circles. You end up having a patient who believes it's normal until it's too late.

Necrotic, tunneling infection. I appreciate that the infection mercilessly eats them to death as punishment for fats spending their lives eating.

Kidney failure after a 3rd or 4th visit. Rhabdomyolysis from a desperate attempt at regaining mobility without dieting first or the abuse of laxatives. Other weight loss stims that are basically speed or amphetamines themselves do this shit too.

EDIT: There's also the disgusting fat family that while visiting contaminates everything because of their poor hygiene. Usually infecting their own with some MRSA hiding under a fold they scratched after taking a shit without washing their hands.

Yeah, I have to go with peripheral limb ischemia, with acute sepsis and the necessity to amputate a leg in a shocked patient. I curse them so much. Also, I love when I tell them that they DO NOT HAVE critical limb ischemia, but the pani is actually from neuropathy. Neuropathy comes from diabetes. Diabetes comes from disgusting, vomit-inducing obesity. They SO don’t believe me.
