rior to engaging in this discussion, read Chapter
5 in your text, watch the  Peter Attia Is the
obesity crisis hiding a bigger problem? video,
and review any relevant Instructor
Guidance.  For this discussion, please reference
the information in  the Introduction to the
Miller Family document. Lila Miller Goldberg is
a 45-year-old diabetic. She had difficulty
losing weight since her pregnancy years ago and
has started experiencing symptoms related to her
condition. She has insulin-dependent
diabetes mellitus (IDDM), and has been
symptomatic for more than 10 years. She has been
resistant about changing her diet and  has
been inconsistent with treatment, despite her
health. She always hated her mother Ellas
fixation on nutrition while she was growing up,
the different diets she tried, and the weird
meals she prepared. She prefers quick and
easy convenience foods, fast food, and what
tastes good. After all, she is a busy working
mom! She has never liked to exercise and, with
the pain that has developed  in her feet, it is
physically too difficult.  Analyze and discuss
the relationship between Lilas environment
growing up, her physiology, and her attitudes and
behaviors. Use the following questions to guide
your explanation, and be certain to apply basic
medical terminology as appropriate. How might
Lilas condition affect her thinking, her
relationships, and social situations? In what
ways might these factors worsen her condition?
How has Lilas aversion to her mothers dietary
fanaticism while she was growing up affected her
choices and, as a result, her health?
How might Lilas condition of being overweight
impact her relationships?  How might others in
Lilas family and community view her, and how
might this affect how she views herself? What do
you believe are Lilas options at this time?
 Cite research that supports your reasoning. If
you were Lilas close friend, how might you
counsel her based upon your understanding of
the biopsychosocial aspects related to her
position? Provide evidence from the available
resources.?         For more classes
