Drug companies have made medications to help the extreme obese lose weight for countless years. Though these drugs never last as they eventually cause severe medical conditions and we eventually see class action law suits advertised to gain more clients. Doesn’t it seem to reason that maybe our medical field should spend more time on prevention strategies and natural paths to help patients lose weight through education and support and less time pushing drugs?
I know that the obesity battle can be strenuous and difficult. My own mother battled her weight her entire life until she finally gave up and consequently blew up to around 350 pounds. This resulted in Type II Diabetes. When she was diagnosed she took her medication and slowly began to seek and follow outside help. It took her several years to change her life, however she has lost an amazing amount of weight, in fact she is skinnier than I’ve ever seen her.
The greatest news and the reason that I believe obesity should be fought with education and support instead of dangerous drugs is that my mother went in for her normal checkup a few months back and she has successfully reversed her Type II Diabetes. They have taken back all of her medication and she now lives a healthy active lifestyle that she personally has never known. Think of all the people that can reverse their own Type II Diabetes, if only they received help instead of drugs that came with an side effect list an entire page long.
