Patients seeking surgical weight loss treatment for severe obesity and related health conditions now have access to a new program at Medical City Lewisville.

The hospital hosted a grand opening and ribbon-cutting for The Bariatric & Metabolic Institute Wednesday, November 15.

Approximately 15.5 million Americans suffer from severe obesity, according to the National Institutes of Health. Obesity increases the risks of illness and death because of the diseases and conditions that are commonly associated with it, including type II diabetes, hypertension and cardiovascular disease, among other health risks.

Metabolic and bariatric surgical procedures have proven to be effective in the reduction of conditions related to severe obesity, according to hospital officials.

    Great hospital. I was diagnosed with type 2 Diabetes and put on Metformin on June 26th, 2016. I started the ADA diet and followed it 100% for a few weeks and could not get my blood sugar to go below 140. Finally i began to panic and called my doctor, he told me to get used to it. He said I would be on metformin my whole life and eventually insulin. At that point i knew something wasn’t right and began to do a lot of research. Then I found Lisa’s diabetes story (google ” Lisa amazing diabetes ” ) I read that article from end to end because everything the writer was saying made absolute sense. I started the diet that day and the next morning my blood sugar was down to 100 and now i have a fasting blood sugar between Mid 70’s and the 80’s. My doctor took me off the metformin after just three week of being on this lifestyle change. I have lost over 30 pounds and 6+ inches around my waist in a month. The truth is we can get off the drugs and help myself by trying natural methods
