I actually have no idea how you can get it.

it's not like you "catch" it.

I had thyroid cancer so I ended up having having two partial thyroidectomies in order to remove my thyroid (figured out it was cancer after the first, was supposed to be one go but their shitty test is shit). I'm on a thyroid pill for the rest of my life, and seven months after my initial surgery my thyroid levels are much lower than they should be (they are still trying to get everything stabilized and get me on the right pill). I perpetually have no energy, gained weight, I have like super impaired memory (weed & low thyroid levels so it's like double lul). It just plain sucks. I'd imagine most people have the issue for much longer than I'm having it as well.

Now plenty of people are fat just because of bad lifestyle. Plenty of people are skinny with just as bad of a lifestyle. Some people have medical issues contributing or causing their obesity and it probably isn't even diagnosed in a bunch of cases. You'd be surprised just how many people have thyroid issues and how much of an impact it can have on ppl. We can't shame dudes for taking advantage of drunk women but we can shame ppl with legitimate medical issues that can sometimes lead to major surgery. Okay.

Sorry to hear that. But 12 million does sound like a bit too much though. that is what, 1/30 of the usa population? I really hate those guesses of the numbers, they are usually outrageous.

Edit. the elderly apparently have a lot of thyroid problems. Ofcourse that the number is so high.

I wouldn't doubt the number. Once I started throwing around the c-word (because I've earned it) heard quite a bit about people who had or know somebody who had thyroid shit and had to have surgery. Anecdotal but I gave you a proper number/source too so you can shove it up your ass you fag

See my edit. The 12m is correct, but it is mostly in certain age groups (above 50). So yeah, the elderly are cracking up that number. Whereas young people are barely effected. I want to post my article too but i am on my phone. Just google thyroid problems and age. :0

You forgot to point out that some people are genetically predispositioned to be overweight.

I mean sure, it's possible to keep in figure with exercise, but people with a genetic predisposition towards storing fat will have a harder time keeping their weight down than most people.

12 million Americans have thyroid disease bruh.

Yes, and the number of Americans who live unhealthy and stationary lifestyles are far greater in number and a more significant contributor to obesity, I'd wager.

Genes are amazing when you come from a non-obese family.

I still can't believe that obese people is labeled and treated as "handicapped"
I mean, they look f*cking ridiculous driving their electric carts everywhere like they couldn't stand up and walk, to at least burn some calories as they walk .

I voted lazy. If calories in > calories used, then weight will be gained. And the reverse is also true. For a few years after high school I was consistently 20-30 pounds overweight. Lots of beer and fast food, hardly any exercise. Then I figured out the trick to actively losing weight is to both work out well (lots of cardio for weight loss) and be hungry almost all the time. Mainly the diet is what does it, honestly. It sucks and some people can't handle it, they don't have the willpower. I got myself down to where I wanted my weight to be and just kept working out but went back to eating when I was hungry. Now I stay in decent shape and around the same weight all the time.

Yeah, exercise is a really poor way to try to lose wait. It's all about diet.

Old Anatomy Professor used to say: "IF I COULD CHANGE ONE THING ABOUT HUMAN BODY, I WOULD CHANGE THE KIDNEY TO DUMP EXCESS GLUCOSE LIKE DOES WITH ELECTROLYTES AND MINERALS. WOULD BE MOST WONDERFUL CHANGE, BECAUSE AM FAT, BUT AM ALSO LAZY."

America is fat. Would be less fat, if ran around in woods. Culture has changed to remove self-accountability. I say: If you are fat, and do not like, then change. Am not fat. Will not be fat, because healthy. Many long runs in woods carrying 60kilo packs, and combat drills facilitate a healthy body. Most America does not have healthy body. Must change, otherwise coronary disease risk goes up in relation to how many burger is eat.

Kadosh!

Mostly. But a diet alone won't get you into good shape, it'll just drop pounds. I wanted to get in shape, too.

People get fat partly because the bodies we evolved with are not well suited for our modern lifestyle.
