Collaborating researchers at Boston's Joslin Diabetes Center, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Brigham and Women's Hospital recommend that doctors monitoring such patients should be alert for a new, potentially dangerous hypoglycemia complication that, while rare, may require quick treatment.
News like this leads me to wonder if it's worth it for a morbidly obese person to have gastic bypass surgery. Having hypoglycemia, as I can testify, can be quite challenging. (I get very lightheaded and brain foggy if I wait too long between meals.)
But, let me confess: I do NOT know what an obese person is going through that leads him or her to want such surgery.
However, I do know of obese people having lost tremendous amounts of weight without such surgery. Just check out Jimmy Moore's story---he lost 180 pounds just by cutting out the processed carbs and sugars and exercising.
IT HAS BEEN 10 YRS SINCE MY GASTRIC BYPASS AND I HAVE SEVERE LOW BLOOD SUGAR NOW AND IT IS AFFECTING EVERYTHING I DO. IT HAS GOTTEN SO BAD IT IS AFFECTING MY JOB WHICH IS VERY SCAREY. I'M WORKING WITH AN ENDO DR BUT AM ABOUT TO CRAZY-LOW CARB-NO CARB-NOTHING IS WORKING TO EVEN ME OUT. I HAVE KEPT 50 LBS OFF WITH THIS SURGERY BUT WOULD NOT RECOMMEND IT- IF THIS KEEPS UP I WILL BE ON DISABILITY- THAT IS HOW MUCH THIS IS AFFECTING ME.
I really can't afford the price of Gastric Bypass, I consider surgery before but due to price and many complications that I have heard, I did not continue finding means and options just to undergo surgery. I still look for a different option that might help me lose weight without undergoing surgery and I found this site - gastric-bypass-no-surgery.com/answers/ask-the-doctor/comparison/gastric-bypass-surgery-costs/ Is there anyone of you heard anything about it? I will appreciate your inputs.
