My GP dissed me For eating chips When I’ve consistently eaten chips for ages it’s obviously not the course of my illness and never been ill. It’s not fair when they see fat they think they don’t have a job to do and That been fat it’s like a sin to God So they’re just going to let what ever is coming to you come. Yeah sure I’ve got a problem with my Gallbladder but the stress of fat phobia is creeping up on me that’s gonna make me iller than chips

Are you really for real? or just fishing for a chip?

All GP's and NHS staff are required through Govt policy through the NHS political wing to lecture and be brutal to fat people to 'educate them' and hope that they stop people putting weight on and getting their weight to 'normal' levels

The Govt has run out of public money because no one is working anymore. The numbers of people turning up at doctors because of fat complicated illnesses is all going through the roof (usual suspects cardiac; fatty liver; gall stones; strokes; gout; diabetes) so the hard talk is the in thing right now. Add Covid cases to the NHS falling apart and you get the picture.

The interesting thing is why you reacted so much? It's a bit like going fishing to catch a minnow and then you end up catching a shark?

If you know all of the answer to your illness then why do you still go to the Doctor's?

That said - I understand your outrage. After all what is a chip between friends? The problem just in between the chips we pack away all the processed food we can lay our hands on. Biscuits, crisps, ice cream, chocolate, McD's KFC's, 5 guys, pizza express, domino's, curries - all as lethal as cocaine and twice as addictive?

I hope in the fullness of time you can find someone to assist you to be in a better place with your health and your fitness. No I am not some do-gooder spouting off. Just another overweight fast food loving loser!!!!
I don’t eat or read salad. Helpful responses please!

It's not unreasonable. Chips are high in fat, which can cause issues with the gallbladder.

He literally only thought he had the right to say this because I am overweight.
To the other poster, fat bodies not too be blamed for Tory funding problem s.

He said it because it's in your best interest to eat healthier, that has nothing to do with tories. Now, didn't you say that Muttly's response was unhelpful?

It is not rude to comment on dietary consumption or weight when given as medical advice and received during an appointment with a healthcare professional that may be relevant to current health issues diagnosed or requiring treatment and those most likely to develop unless diet & lifestyle habits drastically change.

Ok this hopefully a helpful response too (related to chips) This is for information only and does not insinuate or suggest any diagnosis. It is a response to the post.

Your gallbladder (situated in your liver) produces bile salts when fatty foods are eaten. You gall bladder ducts can be blocked by gall stones which cause all sorts of horrible pain and sometimes the only way to stop these is to have them removed by surgery.

Chips have a very high surface area (particularly fries) which absorb the cooking lard, oil, fat - they are high density calorie foods

If you are overweight and have a high fat diet you can be predisposed toward fatty liver disease.



Stages of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) - Information below is from the NHS web site

NAFLD develops in 4 main stages.

Most people will only ever develop the first stage, usually without realising it.

In a small number of cases, it can progress and eventually lead to liver damage if not detected and managed.

The main stages of NAFLD are:

simple fatty liver (steatosis) – a largely harmless build-up of fat in the liver cells that may only be diagnosed during tests carried out for another reason

non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) – a more serious form of NAFLD, where the liver has become inflamed

fibrosis – where persistent inflammation causes scar tissue around the liver and nearby blood vessels, but the liver is still able to function normally

cirrhosis – the most severe stage, occurring after years of inflammation, where the liver shrinks and becomes scarred and lumpy; this damage is permanent and can lead to liver failure (where your liver stops working properly) and liver cancer

It can take years for fibrosis or cirrhosis to develop. It's important to make lifestyle changes to prevent the condition getting worse.

Am I at risk of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD)?
You're at an increased risk of NAFLD if you:

are obese or overweight – particularly if you have a lot of fat around your waist (an "apple-like" body shape)
have type 2 diabetes
have a condition that affects how your body uses insulin
are insulin resistance, such as polycystic ovary syndrome
have an underactive thyroid
have high blood pressure
have high cholesterol
have metabolic syndrome (a combination of diabetes, high blood pressure and obesity)
are over the age of 50
smoke
But NAFLD has been diagnosed in people without any of these risk factors, including young children.

Although it's very similar to alcohol-related liver disease (ARLD), NAFLD is not caused by drinking too much alcohol.

If you want to read about other sources on why obesity is unhealthy:
Obese people have a higher mortality rate from COVID
It is a major risk factor for coronary heart disease, stroke and type 2 diabetes
https://www.cdc.gov/obesity/adult/causes.html
Moderate obesity can reduce life expectancy for up to 3 years; 10 years for severely obese individuals

We need a better education system. As an Asian person, no, it's not racist to be fit.

Correlation not causation. Don’t account for stress, it’s impact on lifespan and fat phobia.

Don't use phrases that you don't understand. Are you implying that all obese people are stressed?
