I'm considering lap-band surgery to lose the extra weight that I've gained over last 30 years. I was born with only one kidney. I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes 2 years ago. And my doctor just added a second high blood pressure medication as my bp was getting out of control. I am worried that my only kidney will be damaged. Can I qualify for medically needed weight reduction surgery?
i want to try slim quik but concerned it may affect my single kidney (was born this way) i do not have high b.p or diabeties or any health problems i just cant seem to get the thirty pounds off with diet and exercise.......any suggestions?
