After so many years of yo-yo dieting, I was saved by MGB. At 42 I had most ailments that my mother had at 73. High Blood Pressure, high cholesterol, pre-diabetic, joint pains, ankle swelling, fatige, asthma, absent periods.  I was an average teenager in size. When I got to college I started gaining weight and my first diets were around 1997.  Since then, it was a struggle with my weight. I tried everything to loose weight! Only to end up gaining more after I could not keep up the diet.
I found MGB via my employer and a pilot program they offered to employees to get this tool. After researching my options offered, I opted for the MGB. 
I am glad I did. Weeks after the surgery  I was not taking medication anymore for my HPB.  My periods returned.  My 6 months labs were great and I am off all meds. I have energy. Ankle swelling is gone. No longer pre diabetic.
