Saw a doctor this week who is doing a study on individuals with a BMI lower than 35 (mine is 31) who have additional health issues (diabetes being mine.) Unfortunately it means that I have to pay for the surgery out-of-pocket, just wondering if anyone else has had a similar experience. I haven’t found any information on anyone with a low BMI doing VSG I have found it hard to get my questions answered outside of my doctor. How much weight could I lose (current weight 169), can I loose too much weight and most of all can I really reverse my diabetes after 16 yrs? Any info would be very appreciated.
