This is the Weight and Healthcare newsletter! If you like what you are reading, please consider subscribing and/or sharing! I got this question recently: “I’ve been seeing articles that say that being fat* is considered a “chronic lifelong condition.” Can you explain what’s going on to me?”
Hi Ragen! (If not appropriate and/or you don't have capacity to reply, 100% OK!) I noticed that this post has an audio read-over, and I love that this exists! Do you mind if I ask if this was just an experimental thing and possibly just wasn't sustainable? Or were there other ways that your readers were accessing an audible-type of version? I have been exploring text readers but they are super expensive so if there is some type of chrome extension you've had success with, would appreciate.
Hi Ragen. I love this Substack, so much great info. As mentioned before, I'm getting ready for a visit to my HCP after a fairly big weight gain. I want to be prepared for whatever she throws at me about T2 diabetes. I looked at the HAES resource sheet for T2D and it states quite specifically that T2 is genetic and not a result of eating choices. I really wish there was a citation for that considering it flies in the face of conventional wisdom. Do you have any citations? I'm going to do some googling but am fully expecting to have to slog through a bunch of BS before I find anything.
