Re:Topic 5 Mandatory Discussion Question


The association of obesity with chronic diseases, such as heart disease, hypertension, sleep apnea, degenerative joint disease, gastroesophageal reflux disease, asthma, and depression, is well documented and reinforces the benefit of achieving and maintaining a “normal” weight.  Bariatric surgery provides dramatic improvement in these chronic conditions. Mr. C is currently obsessed at 295.9 pounds. Has high blood pressure, sleep apnea, fasting blood sugar over and above acceptable parameters. Elevated Cholesterol and triglycerides. He is at risk for diabetes and heart disease.  He will benefit from

bariatric surgery and be able to this condition.


Mr. C to take Sucralfate/Carafate 1 g or 10ml suspension (500mg / 5mL) 1 hour before meals and at bedtime at 6am., 11am., 5pm and 10pm.


Magnesium hydroxide/aluminum hydroxide (Mylanta) 15 mL PO 1 hour before bedtime and 3 hours after mealtime and at bedtime. To be taken at 10am, 3pm., and 9pm.


Take Ranitidine (Zantac) 300 mg PO at bedtime.


Health-perception: Mr. C. has a good perception of his health, understands the health danger and risks he is running and seeking information to help him achieve optimal health.


Health-management: Mr. C. has HTN, and has sleep apnea. Manages his HTN with low Sodium diet.


Nutritional-metabolic: Has gained approximately 100 pounds in the last 2-3 years. Patient eats 3 meals per day and a bedtime snack. Patient has high cholesterol and

high triglyceride and his fasting glucose is146mg/dl. These are indication of poor nutritional choices and possibly poor metabolism.

Activity-exercise: Patient works at catalog telephone center. Probably sits all day, no exercise or activity was noted.


Sleep-rest: Patient has sleep apnea. Sleep apnea can lead to heart disease if untreated.


Cognitive-perceptual:  No impairment stated


Self-perception/Self-concept: Mr. C.  is aware of his obesity and is ready to take measures to correct it.


Role-relationship: Not stated

What actual or potential problems can you identify?

Describe at least Five problems and provide the rationale for each.


Actual problems are hypertension, sleep apnea, elevated cholesterol, elevated triglycerides. Potential problems include diabetes, heart disease, stroke, peripheral, vascular disease etc. Mr. C needs to lose weight or he will become diabetic. He may already be, but he is unaware, his MD needs to order Hgbaic. Both elevated cholesterol and triglycerides are precursors to heart disease.  Sleep apnea if untreated can lead to heart disease. He can die in his sleep due to insufficient oxygen to the brain. There is a high reduction in mortality rates with bariatric surgery. There is a significant improvement in those diseases that are caused or worsened by obesity, including: blood pressure, diabetes, and heart disease, and stroke.
