I'd say, next to weight loss, the biggest issue here is probably dealing with some form of heart disease. Heart attacks, atrial fibrilation, clogged arteries are rampant among the membership rolls. Also, because heart disease kills more diabetics than any other issue, it affects them as well. Of course, obesity and heart disease are closely linked. Most every question and answer ultimately comes back around to heart disease around here and the whole group of forums tends to reflect it's importance. being someone faced with those issues I see it woven through most all the threads. I never really gave much thought to having a heart attack board because of it. I'm curious what would be gained from a specific board for that issue that isn't really being addressed now?
While adopting this diet and lifestyle program I have reversed my heart disease, high cholesterol, hypertension, and lost 54 lbs. You can follow my story at http://www.drmcdougall.com/star.html
