UNBIASED, FACTUAL AND SUPPORTIVE
Many with obesity feel their healthcare is compromised as a result of their obesity. Healthcare professionals often “blame” medical complaints on the obesity completely dismissing the possibility there are other causes for these ailments. Over time, many patients become reluctant to seek care and when they do, they are hesitant to discuss their weight. Weight stigmatization by healthcare providers is well documented and common reactions include:
- No self-control
- No self-respect
