‘MBFFL’ Whitney Way Thore’s Pre-Diabetes, Real Or Fake For Show?

TV Shows

In Season 2 of My Big Fat Fabulous Life, Whitney Way Thore had a session with Julie Duffy Dillon. They discussed finding health with PCOS and pre-diabetes. Much was made about her poor health, but she was determined to change her lifestyle. Now, her big panic about pre-diabetes is seldom mentioned, so TLC fans wonder if it was all just big drama for the show.

My Big Fat Fabulous Life – Whitney Way Thore Has Health issues

Despite thinking that she could handle her pre-diabetes with a lifestyle change, other health issues plague the TLC star. Remember the dance-a-thon in Season 3? She crashed with a thud onto the floor, and everyone looked shocked. Off she went to the hospital in an ambulance, where an ER doctor tried in vain to convince her she needed to change her lifestyle.

Whitney Way Thore has lost some weight, but a lot of MBFFL fans think it’s because she uses Ozempic. Well, she denies that, so other people suspect that she secretly went for gastric surgery.

MBFFL Whitney Way Thore Health Issues & Her Pre-Diabetes

TLC fans on social media are busy discussing the health of Glenn Thor’s daughter. Possibly, that’s because they saw that she had to get rescued in Switzerland after yet another health scare. Actually, fans felt skeptical about that. After all, if anyone is going to have a big drama on the screen, it is usually her. Mind you, she has been struggling with PCOS, and her size tends to make her feel unwell on occasion.

On Reddit, a My Big Fat Fabulous fan questioned whether Whitney Way Thore either created drama for the show or simply ignored her poor health.

As someone who has just been diagnosed with [ pre-diabetes,] she is…something. They had like a handful of episodes where she was so distraught and then once she tested ‘normal’ she went right back to eating pasta and bread. That’s not how it works. Your pancreas doesn’t heal itself. It’s like the sleep apnea. They showed the CPAP like twice and then she’s never seen with it again. I also have sleep apnea and these things are just dangerous to mess with, and also sends a horrible message to people dealing with both. Did they just make it up for plot points or is she just ignoring both?

Most MBFFL fans who participated in the discussion suspect that Whitney Way Thore is probably diabetic.

  • I’m certain she’s diabetic by now. I think both of her parents were, she’s obese and doesn’t take good care of herself.
  • I find it hard to believe she has eaten the way she has over the years and would probably be clinically morbidly obese and NOT be diagnosed as diabetic…
  • She was on 2000mg of the pill metformin that is just before…insulin injection.

What do you think about Whitney Way Thore who never talks about pre-diabetes these days? Do, you believe that she really had it? Was it all just made up for the show? Do you think the closest she got to it was allegedly using Ozempic, a diabetes medication used for weight loss? Or, do you agree that could have diabetes? Share what you think in the comments below.
