Big Mac Daddy Has Hormone Issues

Jobs’ Cancer Fan Boys Snubbed | Shareholders Left without Succession Plan

Much to the chagrin of many morbid fan boys that want to blog about Steve Jobs fighting cancer or something terrible, apparently the Daddy of Mac’s simply has hormones, or that is does not have enough of the right hormones to hold or keep his weight. 


Hormonal issues typically derive from problems with the thyroid gland (No we did NOT say he has Thyroid cancer).  This can happen with people of any age, but are most common with menopausal women.

Jobs wrote a letter to the Apple Community, essentially telling everyone not to get their panties in a twist about his weight loss, while basically admitting that he did not do anything about the problem until a ‘few weeks’ ago, or about the time everyone got in an uproar about the problem and Apple’s stock tanked(dramatic term for going down more than it should have all things in the financial world considered).

Unfortunately, even though Jobs is doing something about his hormone imbalance, no one has yet mentioned much about getting down to the business of building a successful succession plan for the company that tried to evolve past Jobs and failed in a spectacular fashion.

Dear Apple Community,

For the first time in a decade, I’m getting to spend the holiday season with my family, rather than intensely preparing for a Macworld keynote.

Unfortunately, my decision to have Phil deliver the Macworld keynote set off another flurry of rumors about my health, with some even publishing stories of me on my deathbed.

I’ve decided to share something very personal with the Apple community so that we can all relax and enjoy the show tomorrow.

As many of you know, I have been losing weight throughout 2008. The reason has been a mystery to me and my doctors. A few weeks ago, I decided that getting to the root cause of this and reversing it needed to become my #1 priority.

Fortunately, after further testing, my doctors think they have found the cause — a hormone imbalance that has been “robbing” me of the proteins my body needs to be healthy. Sophisticated blood tests have confirmed this diagnosis.

The remedy for this nutritional problem is relatively simple and straightforward, and I’ve already begun treatment. But, just like I didn’t lose this much weight and body mass in a week or a month, my doctors expect it will take me until late this Spring to regain it. I will continue as Apple’s CEO during my recovery.

I have given more than my all to Apple for the past 11 years now. I will be the first one to step up and tell our Board of Directors if I can no longer continue to fulfill my duties as Apple’s CEO. I hope the Apple community will support me in my recovery and know that I will always put what is best for Apple first.

So now I’ve said more than I wanted to say, and all that I am going to say, about this.
