CHECK IF YOU MEET QUALIFICATION CRITERIA
One of the most important things to consider before you undergo Bariatric Surgery is to check if you are a candidate for the surgery. For a person with some underlying diseases, the BMI (Basic Metabolic Index) has to be at least 32.5 and for those with no medical condition, the BMI has to be a minimum of 37.5.
In some cases, for people who are significantly overweight or have any diseases like diabetes that is not under control, the criterion is lowered or for people who are not obese but have uncontrolled diabetes, qualify for the surgery as the cut off in such cases is 15 kg overweight and not 25 kg overweight.
IDENTIFY THE RIGHT SURGEON
Not everyone who is overweight needs to undergo Bariatric Surgery. After you decide that you have to undergo the surgery, it is vital to consult a surgeon who has experience in the field.
