Medical weight bias discussed in Prevention
There's an article on medical weight bias in July's Prevention Magazine. When Your Doctor Makes You Feel Fat, subtitled "Overweight women are often given a biased diagnosis because of appearance. Here's how to make sure you get the health care--and respect--you deserve."
This article features interviews with a number of women who have experienced weight-based discrimination from medical professionals. However, in spite of the title, the advice it offers is pretty sparse. It suggests calmly discussing the discriminatory behavior with the doctor or nurse, and if they react badly, switching to a different provider.
The article acknowledges that as long as society holds fat people in low regard, so will doctors. Of course, the weight based paradigm in that's fashionable in the medical community - and in magazines like Prevention - almost guarantees that doctors will try to link every health concern to weight, often failing to properly diagnose and treat fat people's health problems.
