Did you watch "Long live Britain" last night? (BBC1 9pm). People were screened for the three "silent" killers. Heart disease Diabetes and Fatty Liver.Three quarters of the people were referred to their GP for further investigations.
The answer to all of the illnesses was a change in eating and more exercise. It was a good program but of course it made me feel guilty as I am overweight and have a fatty liver. No mention of underlying illnesses.
I don't drink very often or eat to excess,in fact as the list of don't eat get longer,I am finding it hard to fill a plate. BUT I do an underactive thyroid. When is anyone going to understand??
