Dear Gastric Bypass
A gastric bypass is a serious step to take, so patients who are not very obese and who have not at least tried to lose weight using a balanced, energy-reduced diet with the assistance of a dietitian (visit the Association for Dietetics in SA Website at: www.adsa.org.za and click on "Find a Dietitian" to find a dietitian in your area), should not really resort to this type of drastic treatment. Please first have yourself assessed by a dietitian before you embark on having a bypass.
