      • Yeah, I guess that too.
        You’re sick because you’re obese. You’re thin because you’re sick. Something like that?

        Thinner patients do look more fragile though. The thing with the obese is that they can put up a healthy facade by being in a happy disposition. Thinner patients on the other hand would still look sickly when compared.
        Weight loss is also a more common sign of disease right? More than weight gain that is.

      • Yea. I guess something like that. it goes to show, how much of an impact first impressions are, especially when meeting a patient for the first time.
        I guess, it might even be a subconscious thing for some doctors when they make the differentiation and act accordingly.
        Yeah, that too. Weight loos is a more common sign of a condition, considering you weren’t that weight before.
        Plus being overweight does show a disregard for health
