Health benefits of the band

Recommended Posts

So before being banded I had border line blood pressure and elevated triglycerides (type of cholesterol). I went for a check up last week and had things checked out and my blood pressure is perfect 120/80 (from 135/85) and my triglycerides are normal. So now the only symptom I have for metabolic syndrome (which generally leads to things like diabetes) is my weight, but even then I am just regular obese instead of the dreaded morbidly obese.

On the down side I am deficient in folic acid, but no common efficiencies like B12 or iron. For all I know I may have been deficient before surgery (yup my diet was that bad).

All things considered my family Dr and I are pretty darn impressed! Now I just need to conquer my exercise aversion and I will be set!
