Mr. C. has been diagnosed with HTN, Sleep Apnea, and Peptic
Ulcer Disease


Bariatric surgery is an option for Mr. C. but without more
knowledge of what other interventions he has tried in the past this should be
used as a last resort. For instance, does Mr. C. exercise? Has he tried proven
weight loss measures, such as Weight Watchers or following a clean eating diet?
Are his other health problems being managed? For instance, has he had a sleep
study and does he use a Cpap? Bariatric surgery comes with its own host of
health related problems. People that have undergone this type of surgery suffer
from complications such as Pernicious Anemia, Psychological

Addiction, Dumping Syndrome, Malnutrition, and Hypoglycemia (Ferreira, L.M.,

Health-perception: Mr. C. appears
to be concerned with his health and has a realistic perception of what he needs
to change in order to

improve his life. He is seeking information for bariatric
surgery and stated that he has always been heavy and that he has gained approximately
100 pounds in the last 2-3 years.Health-management: Mr. C. has HTN,
eats a low Sodium diet, and has sleep apnea .Nutritional-metabolic: Has gained

Mr. C. is hypertensive and while he tries to control his blood pressure with a sodium restricted diet, he needs additional workup and possibly medication since his blood pressure at the visit was 172/96. Mr. C. also needs a workup for Type II DM as his fasting blood glucose
was 146 which is out of normal range. Possibly be treated with Metformin as this will also help with weight loss. Mr. C. has high cholesterol and needs a statin prescribed. Mr. C. needs a Cpap machine if he does not already have one due to his sleep apnea. This will also improve energy levels and help to decrease weight gain. Mr. C. could benefit from a nutrition consult to treat not only his obesity but also help with a cardiac, diabetic diet. Mr. C. could also benefit from the help of a counselor, as he is seeking help for his weight, he

may have poor self-esteem which could lead to depression. All patients undergoing bariatric surgery should be treated by a counselor prior to and after surgery due to the change in body image.
