OJ Simpson has only three months to live as a result of his extreme case of diabetes and unhealthy lifestyle behind bars.

The combination of 'sky high' blood pressure, a vastly expanding waistline and a lack of physical activity as he serves a 33-year prison sentence have doctors concerned about his health.

I’ll be curious what kind of glucose numbers he’s shooting? has he given up? What difference does it make?

Just filling space :-)

Before he dies, can you ask him if I can have his USC football?

I could get some money for that.

Just sayin.

I don’t blame him. If I did what he did and got away with what he did I’d probably pick up smoking again. Maybe 3-4 packs a day.

Send him to Libya. They can get another three or four years out of terminal sick people with just a few weeks left to live. At least that’s what they tell the lawyers and the judges.

I don’t understand why he chose to kill his wife. He had all kinds of women chasing him. You’d think he’d gotten tired of her.

The guilt over what he did is finally eating him alive.

I hope he gets to live in his own private hell as long as possible.

This is probably BS. He has a parole hearing coming up soon, and I suspect this is all in preparation for his case to be released. As the hearing date gets closer, he’ll probably also develop heart problems, brain cancer, Parkinson’s and a few other ailments.

if he really has very bad diabetic problems chances are some of what he’s doing, the weird talking, the ignoring people, could be from big swings in blood sugar one way or the other. I know diabetics and they get very loopy and seem to be strange and unresponsive when blood sugars get too low or way, way too high. A friend of mine can’t concentrate and kind of starts laughing and not making it through full thoughts and sentences when her blood sugar gets too low. I had her take a reading when she was doing this and she was 38 (normal blood sugar is about 100). She had taken some insulin beforehand because she was going to eat lunch, but then had decided not to eat anything, and she wound p going real, real low - you can pass out too low, or when it goes very high. You get real odd behavior in between those ranges.

So if he’s really as unhealthy as they claim, some of the odd behavior is probably from his blood sugar spiking one way or the other.

This may not be very compassionate, but all I can think is he’ll still live twenty years longer than those people he murdered.

because he’s OJ, and nobody, nobody seduces OJ’s wife away from OJ. Especially a nothingburger non-celebrity.

His defense team is just preparing for the parole hearing by trying to get the public to start in with a "Free OJ" theme. You don't need facts to get that task started.

OJ Simpson has only three months to live...

Good!! But I don't believe it. His whole life has been a scam, a lie, and BS. Still has to be a scam. If he wants to off himself, just give him 10 feet of rope and get it over with...soon.

So many gifts and look at how he's used them. A pity.

Hope he's made peace and sought forgiveness. Otherwise, he's truly been dead for a long time and it's just going to get worse in ways he can't possibly imagine.

He should read Howard Storm's personal account of his experience documented in My Descent Into Death: A Second Chance at Life...to prepare, while he still can.

But they were legally separated. It's not like all of OJ's ex-wives or -lovers remained celibate after they ended things with him.

"You shouldn’t be able to get fat in prison."

Obesity is now associated with viruses as well as with low quality high carb foods.

Give them meat and low carb vegetables if you don't want them to get fat. But that's going to raise the cost of feeding them.

Unless you'd advocate starving them. But given the political prosecutions that are going on, I'm not sure I'd want to advocate that.

I have no pity for him and he is a double murderer

That said, his sentence for his crime in Las Vegas was way too excessive.

Why should he care? He will probably never get out of jail and if or when he does he will be too old and too poor to enjoy life.

It’s just a good thing OJ’s wife didn’t have a gun. We’d have another racial self defense case on our hands. </s> And with OJ a well-liked (at the time) celebrity.

sure, I get that. they’re defense lawyers.

I’m strictly focusing on the medical things raised. there’s just an easy way to see if he has diabetes and real blood sugar problems. and if he does, that can explain some of the detached, weird behavior because high and low blood sugar causes a lot of strange behavior in people.

Zimmerman was unlucky. If Martin was over 18 or weighed more than him, the case would probably have disappeared.

But all the others were thrown out by OJ. Nichol kicked HIM to the curb. And he is OJ! You can't get away with dissing OJ!

Big difference...
