Post Op 3 Months Gastric Sleeve



Recommended Posts

I never had diabetes prior to surgery and I’m wondering if I could now get it even though I have now lost so much weight ?

According to WebMD, Type 2 diabetes is primarily caused by obesity and an inactive lifestyle (in 90-95% of cases). By losing a lot of weight you've eliminated one cause, and if you stay active you'll eliminate the other.

Do you have a specific reason for believing you're in danger of developing diabetes?

Why do you think you have developed diabetes?

Typically caused my being overweight but also by genetics. For the most part it can be controlled my diet and exercise but not always. Medication is needs a lot of the times.

You should contact your PCP and be diagnosed so you can work on controlling it.

Diabetes is a nasty disease that is not partial to anyone.

I suppose there's a chance you could, but it's a lot less likely if you lose a lot of weight.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
