    Type II Diabetes Diet with LapBand?

    NEED HELP! I had lap band almost 3 years ago and was not taking any meds. When I finally got around to getting my blood work done, it was all too high. Started taking metformin again, which did not work to lower my levels. Then I added Januvia, which did not work at all. Stopped that and started Glimeperide which made my gain about 10lbs very quickly. I was so frustrated I went back to my PCP and we are trying Byetta. Still I have not lost any weight and am very frustrated. the last time I saw my Bariatric Surgeon he told me he did not want to adjust me any further because I'm already at 9.5cc and I have an 11cc band. what are you guys eating to maintain sugar and lose weight?

    Band Slipped and unfilled

    I think I may have a slippage as well, I had a rib out of algnment that was put back in place by my chiro. About 2 weeks later I have been having what feels like stomach spasms, I can eat fine, no reflux just some back pain along with the spasms. What is the process if the band has slipped?

    Need Daily Weigh-in Email Buddy

    I actually am no longer weighing 2 x day. I have been on a very long plateau and have now started back on metformin, zocor and lisinopril. I have been having a really hard time losing, I have gained a good 5 lbs instead. Very frustrated, still working out 5x week for about 45 minutes and still no losing. Need some advise!!!

    Type II Diabetes Diet with LapBand?

    Back on Metformin for about 2 weeks now. Scale has still not moving for almost a year now. Getting very frustrated!!!! Band is almost at full capacity, I have an 11cc band. WTF!!!
  5. Gov. Christie had the same surgeon as I did, Dr Richard Boorse. In Allentown, PA at LVH, he was even on the news last night. Good Luck to him!

    Bragg apple cider vinegar

    How do you take the apple cider vinegar? I would think it would not agree with your stomach...
