No more shame

Irish Examiner - Feelgood - - Food -

HEALTH­CARE pro­fes­sion­als joined forces ear­lier this month to end the stigma of be­ing over­weight. The Ir­ish So­ci­ety for Clin­i­cal Nu­tri­tion & Me­tab­o­lism, Ir­spen, also hopes to raise aware­ness among those health­care pro­fes­sion­als who fail to treat obe­sity as they would any other chronic dis­ease, such as type 2 di­a­betes or heart dis­ease. The so­ci­ety says the stigma is stop­ping pa­tients seek­ing care, which would not only treat obe­sity but many of its com­pli­ca­tions. See www.it­sno­ty­our­fault.ie.
