Commonly encountered bariatrics questions


Some of the bariatrics concerns previously addressed by the Experts on JustAnswer include:


  • Can you please tell me where I can find the best expert for addressing complications from a Roux-En-Y surgery performed in 2009?
  • What 1200 calorie diet, or type of diet in general, would you recommend for me?
  • I’m thinking of weight loss surgery, and I know there are several different types. I need thorough information so I can decide which option I want to go with.
  • If a gastric sleeve is not appropriate to update a gastric bypass surgery performed 14 years ago, what is the best route to take?

Before reaching out for help from the bariatric Experts on JustAnswer, be prepared to answer questions related to your medical history, eating habits, current weight, and any known hormonal problems.
