Our expert says:
With a BMI of 39,3 you do urgently need to lose weight. If you have financial problems then I would recommend that you try to attend one of the obesity clinics at the teaching hospitals which are found in most of the main cities (Pretoria, Cape Town, Durban, Bloemfontein, etc). Phone the government hospital and ask how you can attend the obesity clinics. This will give you access to the correct medical and dietetic treatment, including the possible option of a gastric bypass as your weight is endangering your health.
Please try to get enrolled at one of these clinics.
