  • High Blood Pressure can often be alleviated or eliminated by weight loss surgery

  • High Blood Cholesterol in 80% of patients can be alleviated or eliminated in as little as 2-3 months post-operatively.

  • Heart Disease in obese individuals is certainly more likely to be experienced when compared to persons who are of average weight and adhere to a strict diet and exercise regimen. There is no hard and fast statistical data to definitively prove that weight loss surgery reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease. However, common sense would dictate that if we can significantly reduce many of the co-morbidities that we experienced as someone who is obese, we can likewise assume that our health may be much improved if not totally restored.

  • Diabetes Mellitus can usually be helped and, based upon numerous studies of diabetes and the control of its complications, it is likely that the problems associated with diabetes will be arrested in their progression, when blood sugar is maintained at normal values.

  • Abnormal Glucose Tolerance, or “Borderline Diabetes” is even more likely reversed by gastric bypass. Since this condition is likely to develop into diabetes, the operation frequently prevents diabetes itself.

  • Asthma sufferers may find that they have fewer and less severe attacks, or sometimes none at all. When asthma is associated with gastroesophageal reflux disease, it is particularly benefited by gastric bypass.

  • Sleep Apnea Syndrome sufferers can receive dramatic benefits and, within a year or so of surgery, may find their symptoms completely gone. Some reported to stop snoring completely!

  • Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease can be greatly relieved of all symptoms within just a few days of surgery.

  • Gallbladder Disease can be surgically handled at the time of the weight loss surgery, if your doctor has cause to believe that gallstones are present.

  • Stress Urinary Incontinence responds dramatically to weight loss, and usually becomes completely controlled. A person who is still troubled by incontinence can choose to have specific corrective surgery later, with much greater chance of a successful outcome.

  • Low Back Pain, Degenerative Disk Disease and Degenerative Joint Disease can be considerably relieved with weight loss. Back pain may be decreased in as few as 25 lbs lost.
