Marge is a busy 52-year-old Nursing Director, and knew that her BMI was dangerously high.  In 2011, she finally decided enough was enough, and Marge made the decision to have weight loss surgery, choosing to have the gastric sleeve procedure.

Two months and 50 pounds later, Marge is thrilled to be on a journey to a healthier self, and calls the decision to have weight loss surgery "life-restoring".  

Join us as we talk with Health Travel Guides and Marge about her decision - one made by a number of US doctors and nurses, it turns out -  to have her gastric sleeve with an international surgeon and hospital renowned for working with American metabolic patients.

Recent research published in the New England Journal of Medicine has demonstrated weight loss operations work much better than medication, diet and exercise to control Type 2 diabetes in obese and overweight people.
