SORT BY Relevancy
In 2012 a study was published in the Journal of the American Medical Association that reports the percentage of patients abusing alcohol increased from 7.6% to 9.6% two years after gastric bypass surgery - potentially creating 2,000 alcoholics every year in the US.
There is more than one theory on why this occurs. Some say it is addiction transfer: a patient switches an addiction to food to an addiction to alcohol. More recent evidence suggests an anatomical explanation - metabolic and hormonal changes triggered by gastric bypass surgery that leave patients especially vulnerable to alcoholism. Maybe it is both - or neither? The truth is nobody is 100% sure of why alcoholism rates increase post surgery.
If you are struggling with alcoholism post-surgery, however, the reason why may not be as relevant as what to do about it. There are unique challenges that face people whose alcoholism may be attributed to gastric bypass surgery, and on this episode of the Bubble Hour we will discuss this startling trend. We will share more information about why experts feel this increased vulnerability to alcoholism occurs, and speak with special guest Jessica about her own experience with gastric bypass surgery, alcoholism and recovery.
We are also excited to welcome Diane Grimaldi, DNP, PMHCS, BC as a guest on the show and an expert on this issue.
Diane started her psychotherapy practice in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1984 after receiving her Masters Degree in Adult Mental Health Nursing from Boston College and becoming a board certified Clinical Specialist in Psychiatric Nursing.
In 2014 she received a Doctorate in Nursing Practice from the University of Massachusetts, Lowell. For more information about Diane and her practice please visit www.grimaldicounseling.com.

Is Gastric Bypass the cowards way out? Some claim that those who choose Gastric Bypass are taking the easy way out and have little or no work ethic. Once you get the Bypass are you now a target for the slim and big in society to harp on. Some wear it like a badge of honor and some a badge of shame. Why does everyone assume Gastric Bypass will solve all of a Fat Persons Problems? Should all Fat People get Gastric Bypass?

“I’ve been a Caroline Sutherland fan ever since the first moment I met her in the ’90s. In fact, she fulfilled a dream of mine. At our first meeting, Caroline looked at me, clearly saw my deficiencies and nutritional needs, and on the spot designed a special plan for my particular body. I felt understood for the first time.”

When it seemed that Baltimore State's Attorney, Marilyn Mosby had an iron-clad case against the 6 BPD officers, in the death of Freddie Gray, information has surfaced, which seeks to render her decision to bypass the Grand Jury process as rushed and devoid of legal basis.
While the circumstances around Gray's death remain unclear, a key point in this, is the knife he was carrying, and whether or not it was a violation of the law.
Attorney Mosby maintained publicly, that the knife was not a violation of Maryland law, but not only might this not be the case, but it could very well be, it violated Baltimore law, which would take precedent. This does however highlight the dynamic between state and local ordinances and policies, which plays itself out for example, when the issue is the right to bear firearms.
Al Sharpton visited Baltimore, as well as the newly appointed U.S. Attorney General, Loretta Lynch, who has been asked by the Mayor of Baltimore, Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, to conduct an investigation of its police force, in the midst of allegations of serious civil and illegal violations.
I would only hope, though wouldn't be surprised, if Al Sharpton's presence, in his role as an "advisor", has not been a factor in this request. If so, this speaks to my clear and unwavering view that he is an impediment to progress, and will continue to be so, as long as black America is naive and deluded enough to take him seriously.
The fact does remain, that Freddie Gray died, in a manner that many find troubling; he, being targeted, pursued and manhandled, because of his race.
Time will tell what will happen during and after the trial of the 6 BPD officers, and of course, the bigger issue of the state of existence of the residents of Baltimore, which already has undergone a very volatile period, from which we hope it can rebound.
