given your weight and height, you do fall within a very concerning limit well within the morbidly obese range. This likely accounts for much of you secondary health complication, and you are, indeed, very lucky to not yet have a Type 2 diabetes. You certainly need to look at all the means by which you can control your caloric intake and I suggest that you consult with a registered dietitian who preferably specializes in morbid obesity and look at a sensible way in which to bring your weight down. Exercise is going to need to be carefully designed in light of your physical condition, and swimming might be an option you consider under the supervision of a biokinetisist. Another option you might want to consider is Bariatric (weight loss) surgery, but you will not qualify until your eating habits are normalized. You should consider consulting with a psychologist who specializes in the treatment of eating disorders to b supported towards eating more healthy and identifying the psychological triggers for your conscious overeating. Please email me if you would like to be referred to some specialists near you. Your first step might be to consult with a physician and/or endocrinologist to be physically assessed. I hope this guidance will precipitate some action on your side.
