Watch Honey Boo Boo Confront Her Well being After Diabetes Scare


Perhaps all this delicious sketti was not approved by the doctor.

Despite a family history of diabetes, Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson is not one to take the chance to see a doctor. While taking an exclusive look at the May 21 episode of Mama June: Road to Redemption, the 15-year-old reality star got some news she hadn’t hoped for from a medical professional.

“If you have diabetes, we need to get it under control.” Dr. Blaney shared with Alana. “The main way to get this under control would be to try to lose weight.”

Before taking a lab test, Alana admits she loves hot dogs, pizza rolls, and fries. However, according to the doctor, too many carbohydrates could lead to health problems.

“Carbohydrates make us feel good, stimulate things in our brain that make us happy,” said Dr. Blaney. “You’ve heard the term comfort food? That’s why a lot of people tend to be interested in this type of food.”
