  • Yes and it is only a start, if you do not change your entire lifestyle it does not make a difference.

  • I did not have gastric bypass. I had what is called DS in Brazil. It has changed my health completely. I no longer have high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, arthritis, acid reflux and on and on. I can run and chase my grandkids.
    I eat everything I want to. I do have to take extra vitamins and also be sure to eat enough protein. Do not be discouraged by what others say. Life is not easy being overweight and I know it is not what you chose for yourself. Research the options. DS is duodenal switch. It does not make your stomach extremely small. It changes the intestines and shortens the intestines to limit absorption. Good luck.
