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

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.
