There are plenty of reality shows that document weight loss, but My 600-lb Life stands out as it focuses on the lives of real people. Unfortunately, that means viewers get an intimate glimpse into the sometimes tragic outcomes, along with the successes. Here are the My 600-lb Life stories that didn't end well.

Dr. Now may seem like an unlikely reality TV star. However, he's the only person who appears in every episode of My 600-lb Life, and his skills in the operating room are the reason why. The veteran surgeon isn't known for his small talk, but he clearly lets his patients know what they're facing, without diminishing their humanity.

Oftentimes, Dr. Now offers his patients a reality check on the conditions related to obesity. According to a journal published by the National Center for Biotechnology Information, complications can include high blood pressure, type II diabetes, sleep apnea, stroke, heart disease, depression, cancer, arthritis, and gout.

Many patients on the show successfully lose weight after therapy, diet modifications, increased exercise, and weight loss surgery. But, sadly, some of the show's stars can't make the lifestyle changes, or pass away due to the stress on their bodies.

Watch the video for more about My 600-lb Life stories that ended in tragedy.
