Patient: "What do I need to do to get off all this diabetes medicine?"
Me: "Lose 200 pounds."
Me: "You are the same height as me and 200 lbs heavier. Even then, I'm 10 lbs over my ideal body weight. If you lose 200 lbs you stand a good chance of getting off the pills."
Patient: "Hmm....can you give me a pill to lose the weight?"
