Lap band (gastric banding) introduction
Obesity is a growing concern. Recent statistics show that 30% of Americans meet the criteria for obesity. By medical standards, obesity is defined as having a body mass index (BMI) of over 30 kg/m2. While lifestyle modification remains the cornerstone for treatment, surgical options are becoming more popular. One of the surgical treatments for obesity is called gastric banding, commonly known as lap-band surgery. Some of the specifics of gastric banding will be addressed in this article.
What is gastric banding?
Laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB) is a surgical procedure that involves the placement of an adjustable belt around the upper portion of the stomach using a laparascope. The band is made of silicone and can be tightened by adding saline to fill the band (like blowing air into a doughnut-shaped balloon). The band is connected to a port that is placed under the skin in the abdomen. This port is used to introduce or remove saline into the band.
LAGB ultimately restricts the size of the stomach and the amount of food it can hold. It also slows the passage of food to the intestine. By doing so, signals to the brain from the gut allow for a sensation of fullness and satiety with the consumption of less food. This signal is sent from a small pouch created by the band in the upper stomach. When the pouch fills, the same signal is sent to the brain that occurred previously when the entire stomach filled.
Cordelia Blake: Cordelia struggled with her weight & food since she was 5. When she had the surgery at age 37, she weighed in at 376 lbs. She has lost 101 pounds and counting… She says that "It has been the best thing I have ever done for myself. I just want to remind everyone that no matter our weight we are always goddesses!" Pamela Folle: She was at 272 lbs. at the time of her surgery. She has lost 100lbs and has gone from a size 24 to a size 10 and is still losing. She is now off her blood pressure medication and no longer suffers from sleep apnea.

If you or a love one is even THINKING about undergoing weight loss surgery (also known as Bariatric Surgery), then this may be one of the most important shows that you will listen to.
...With over 60% of the American population overweight or obese, many are turning to the option of Bariatric surgery.
But is it the magic bullet that advertisers want us to believe? Recognized by the National Institutes of Health as a viable option for individuals who have been unable to lose weight using conventional medical methods, bariatric weight-loss surgery is a major gastrointestinal operation that results in weight loss primarily by limiting how much the stomach can hold. Other procedures not only limit food intake, they also decrease nutrient absorption.
What most of us don't know is this: what happens AFTER the surgery is completed? Do you magically change, like the people in the the Ads?
And on top of that, they still need to live a healthy, active lifestyle that includes lots of physical activity. Otherwise it is VERY possible to regain weight (which kinda defeats the purpose of the operation).
Margaret Furtado, Dietitian and author of 'The Complete Idiots Guide to Eating Well after Weight Loss Surgery' will talk about what life is like post-surgery. We will also talk about the myth, the hype and reality of the Bariatric lifestyle.
Regardless of your opinion of the subject, weight loss surgery isn't going anywhere, anytime soon.
Tune it--- and let us know what YOUR opinion is on the subject.
