Would you say that I'm healthy ? Technically, I have three diseases.
Yet, I'll bet that the average person would look at me and think that, based on my age, my slim build and performance has me looking like the picture of health. In fact, people are often astonished when I tell them how old I am.
Black and white, per the definition... nope. Can't beat genetics.
Doesn't sound like any of what you are dealing with is weight related. Along those lines, you could be managing Type 2 Diabetes because you were overweight with all of that stuff.
I would argue that the second condition is "less healthy" than the first.
