I just read the articles below and was struck by the compassionate and proactive tone as regards obesity and health care. I thought it made a refreshing change from the usual hand-wringing and thought I'd pass it on.
Many of us struggle to get insightful responses from our doctors, maybe due to excess weight, maybe because our gp doesn't know how to help us, maybe because they now seem to attribute anything that doesn't show up on a blood test to depression; I was cheered by the desire and effort to look past those kinds of things. It's good to know there are people like this working in health care.
I'd be very interested in any thoughts, reactions etc.
