    crlady, have you also been told that you snore? If so, you should ask your doctor about having a sleep study conducted. Your general physician or your bariatric surgeon, either one, should refer you to a pulmonologist. Good luck!

    I am not diabetic but I am insulin resistant due to PCOS. Just from being on the liquid diet I no longer need to take my metforman(diabetic drug). Hope that helps

    I had my surgery on 3/2 ... I was taking Glyburide (5mg/daily) and Metformin (1000mg X2 daily) prior to the surgery, as well as several medications for my heart (including a high blood pressure medication). All told, I was taking 15 pills a day.

    I came home from the surgery not requiring ANY of the heart or diabetes medications (except for a daily baby aspirin).

    I'm still having sleep apnea issues but they aren't nearly as severe as they were and I actually just recently had my machine adjusted because it was TOO powerful for me

    Hi Gal,
    I too have many fatty deposits on my face. Did your's go away with weightloss or are they just less noticeable?

    I had heart failure before the sleeve surgery, but now my blood pressure is 112/72 on a regular basis, and I've cut down on my meds. in the evening. As your weight drops, your sugar gets better, and other illnesses go away. I use to wake up 3-4 times a night, and now I sleep all night. My wheezing also went away. I no longer breathe heavy when I do every day things. When I lie down, I love the feel of my flat stomach, and I love to go to sleep knowing that I'm getting better all the time.LOL...Bonnie

    One of the other members posted this pic on the main album. I don't know where they got their facts from but it seems reasonable. It shows the different diseases/ conditions & percentage that resolved. Hope this helps... DAVE

    certainly your PCP should be the person to make the final decision on whether you start or stop or adjust any of your meds, but it does seem reasonable, that if you decrease your BMI & caloric intake, that is something to ponder with your PCP or at least adjust with your glucometer readings.

    Hi murfandpeg,

    I have type 2 diabetes and it is one of the reasons I am having the sleeve done. From everything I have read (and I have read a lot) in almost all cases there is a total cessation for the need of medication. I am on glucophage and it is killing me faster than the diabetes. I have to chose whether to take it or not. If I have a busy day then I go without. The bypass should only be a choice if you are so morbidly obese that you are not mobile.

    Good luck with your doctor.

    i see this is a old post but i will answer anyway. the Sleeve will slow it down, but the full bypass will stop diabiaties right off the bat.
