Doctor Oz had Dawn, a Stand-up Comedian, on the Dr Oz show to teach us that even if you are skinny, you can have serious health issues from bad lifestyle choices like the Triple Threat: alcohol, smoking and poor diet choices. No matter how thin you are, if you smoke and drink, you are setting yourself up for some serious health problems. Dawn is a comedian and often works late at night, and since drinks are free for comedians, she will sometimes have 5 or 6 drinks each night. Add to the alcohol the fact that Dawn has been smoking for 12-14 years and now smokes between half a pack and a full pack of cigarettes every day. Dawn’s attitude up until now has been “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” But Dr Oz was able to convince her that she should seriously rethink her lifestyle.
Comedian Dawn’s Truth Tube Results:
Glucose: 69 , which is very low. 25% of women who run low blood sugar levels have no energy and their body cannot regulate their blood sugar because they simply are not eating enough.
Liver Function (G-GTP): 61. Dr Oz said this number must be lower, because it shows the number of liver cells that have be smacked by toxins from alcohol too many times.
Real Age: 39 years old (in reality, she is 33).
Dr Oz also showed Dawn a photo of what they estimate she will look like at the age of 65 if she does not smoke versus what she will look like if she continues to smoke and does not change. Dr Oz said that the best thing to say to someone who smokes who you want to encourage to stop smoking is “I love you, you just have to love yourself as much as I do, and we are golden!” Dawn also must stop drinking so much alcohol, in fact Dr Oz is concerned that Dawn is borderline alcoholic. The visual photos of a normal liver and a liver with cirrhosis was horrifying! The last step for Dawn is to get on a very basic exercise program. That’s right – no matter how thin you are – exercise is important for everyone! Good luck Dawn, we know you can do it!
