John Soria was at the end of his rope. After struggling to lose weight for some time, Soria found himself suffering from climbing blood pressure. Getting shuteye was even a battle as sleep apnea kept Soria up at night. That is when he discovered Texas Laparoscopic Consultants and the promise of the gastric sleeve at TLC Surgery. For people who have faced the challenge of losing excess without much success, the gastric sleeve has a high rate of success, according to TLC Surgery/Nobilis Health. The sleeve restricts food intake by reducing the size of the stomach. As an added benefit, research shows the surgery reduces ghrelin, a hormone that is responsible for hunger and cravings, according to a recent report in the World Journal of Gastroenterology.

Choosing to have weight loss surgery is never an easy decision — just ask the stars who decided to try it. The Wilson Phillips singer has undergone two different weight loss surgeries: gastric bypass in 2000 and lap-band surgery in 2012. After the first procedure, Wilson lost 150 lbs. — and the second surgery continued to help her her slim down. “It was the right decision for me and I’m doing really well so far,” Wilson told PEOPLE of the decision to go under the knife for a second time. “It’s all about taking good care of myself.” Read more here: http://bit.ly/2H1ncaK Shared from: People Bodies
Mariah Carey Underwent Weight Loss Surgery 6 Weeks Ago: ‘This Is a New Beginning for Her,’ Source Sayscmcpro 2018-05-30T16:32:21+00:00
Mariah Carey has undergone gastric sleeve surgery. The GRAMMY winner, who showed off a slimmer figure at her hand and footprint ceremony at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood last Wednesday, underwent the weight loss surgery about six weeks ago, sources tell ET. Carey got the gastric sleeve surgery, which shrinks the size of the stomach so patients eat less, after feeling "extremely insecure about her weight," one source tells ET. "She always fluctuates and it makes her upset," the source says. "She lives in denial about it; she has the tags cut out of clothes, so she can be blissfully unaware of her size."

Women who have had gastric sleeve surgery to lose weight may want to consider limiting the number of alcoholic drinks they consume post-surgery. A new study from a team of researchers at the University of Illinois and Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis found that after undergoing sleeve gastrectomy, women could be legally intoxicated after drinking half the number of drinks than women who did not have this surgery. Sleeve gastrectomy, similar to another weight-loss surgery, Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB), speeds up alcohol absorption to the bloodstream. After drinking, blood alcohol levels increase much faster and reach higher levels than what would be expected before surgery, explains Marta Yanina Pepino, an assistant professor in the Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition at U of I who led the study.

Gastric Sleeve Surgery is when the left side of the stomach, or greater curvature, is removed, resulting in a stomach the size and shape of a banana. This new stomach continues to function normally; however, the quantity of food that you consume will be considerably reduced. Some of the requirements for the procedure of a gastric sleeve surgery are that the candidate is more than 100 lbs over your ideal body weight, Body Mass index of over 40 or that you have a BMI of over 35 and are experiencing severe negative health effects, such as high blood pressure or diabetes, related to being severely overweight. Lastly if you are unable to achieve a healthy body weight for a sustained period of time, even through medically-supervised dieting. Read more here: http://bit.ly/2xrFORy Shared from: FOX News
The unpleasant truth about weight loss is that almost no one achieves it. Most people can lose some weight, but few will secure lasting results. This is due in part to a complex suite of hormones and proteins that re-adjust as we gain, in essence resetting our baseline body weight and trying to keep us at our new, higher mass. So for obese patients—especially the morbidly obese—bariatric surgeries can be life-changing. They can help people lose over 50 percent of their body mass, but these surgeries can also help reverse the biggest health problem most overweight patients face: type 2 diabetes. We usually think of diabetes as a lifelong disorder that has to be managed (and type 1 diabetes is exactly that), but bariatric surgery actually has the capacity to put type 2 diabetes into remission. And that makes it an enormously useful tool to help patients who’ve exhausted their other options. Read more here: http://bit.ly/2xrF4Mg Shared from: Popular [...]
Excessive weight gain is never a good idea for health. Now, new research supports the notion that putting on pounds raises cancer risks for middle-aged women. The study, which tracked more than 137,000 Norwegian women for 18 years, found that the odds of developing certain cancers rose as waistlines expanded. The take-home message: "maintaining stable weight in middle adulthood ... as well as avoiding excess body weight are both of importance for prevention of several obesity-related cancers in women," the researchers said. For the study, Marisa da Silva and colleagues at the Arctic University of Norway in Tromso collected data on women who took part in the Norwegian Women and Cancer study from 1991 to 2011.

“To go from being short of breath after walking to my mailbox to running 26.2 miles in a marathon is amazing,” says Bearden, 62, who lives in Fort Smith, Ark, in a release. “I cried so hard after I finished my first half marathon and first marathon because they are accomplishments I never saw in my future before bariatric surgery.” In 2010, Bearden had a body mass index (BMI) of 48. A BMI of 19-24 is considered healthy, while anything from 40-54 is deemed extremely obese. If being labeled “morbidly obese” wasn’t enough of a red flag, other medical conditions were. “I ended up in the hospital,” says Bearden, a former insulin-dependent diabetic with high blood pressure and sleep apnea. “I didn’t know the asthma was weight-related.” Up to that point, Bearden declined her doctor’s recommendation to have bariatric surgery. “I’d think, ‘It’s just weight. I can lose it,'” she says. Read more [...]
In Mississippi, more than 37 percent of adults are obese, making it the second-most obese state in the nation. But Mississippi is also one of two states, along with Montana, that doesn’t cover bariatric surgery in its Medicaid program, which serves 760,000 people. One popular type of bariatric surgery, the gastric sleeve, costs between $20,000 and $35,000 without insurance, experts told me. It shrinks the stomach to about the size of a banana, changing the body’s hunger hormones and reducing a person’s natural weight—one they don’t have to starve themselves to stick to. For the morbidly obese, diet and exercise don’t usually have this same effect on their own. (People who lost hundreds of pounds sweating it out on the TV show The Biggest Loser, for example, tended to gain it all back.) Read more here: https://theatln.tc/2LInNlc Shared from: The Atlantic
In addition to rapid and lasting weight loss and a passel of other health benefits, bariatric surgery has now been linked to a 61% reduction in the risk of developing malignant melanoma, a deadly form of skin cancer most closely associated with excessive sun exposure. The new research, to be presented Thursday at the European Congress on Obesity in Vienna, Austria, also found that people who underwent weight-loss surgery saw their risk of skin cancer in general decline by 42%.
