Doctor Oz is helping an overweight woman named Jennifer to get healthy. Jennifer is surrounded every day by people who are morbidly obese (she is around 500 to 800 pound people all the time), which boosts her confidence because she feels like she is not that heavy yet. Jennifer’s downfall are sweets (she sometimes has cupcakes for breakfast and dinner). She also feels like the weight has held her back – even in terms of her career. Jennifer may have been a nurse if she did not feel overweight.
Jennifer’s Truth Tube Results:
Weight: 276 pounds
BMI: 41 (over 40 is morbidly obese)
A1C: 6.4 (you want in the 5 range – A1C measures how much sugar is stuck to your red blood cells… her esclated A1C level means her chance of getting diabetes is 17 times higher than a healthy person)
Blood Pressure: 148 / 90
