At DayOne Health we are dedicated to helping patients learn about weight loss surgery and successful long-term weight loss. While reading our website you’ve probably seen the variety of resources we offer. Because tracking down all e-books scattered around the website would be time consuming, we decided to publish them all on one page for easy access. Enjoy!
Lap-Band & Infertility
Learn about the link between weight and infertility and how weight loss surgery could impact fertility and pregnancy. If you are looking for a weight loss surgery which wouldn’t interfere with pregnancy and help with fertility issues caused by excess weight, lap-band could be your best solution.
DayOne Health Lap- Band Cookbook Series
Lifestyle change and preparing your own meals are big part of a lap-bander lifestyle. Nevertheless, staying excited about cooking when you have to watch your calories may not be as fun. Keeping all the lap-band dos and don’ts in mind when it comes to your favorite dishes can definitely be challenging. To assist you in making the right choices, we compiled some of our favorite dishes into lap-band friendly recipe cookbooks.
Important LAP-BAND® System Safety Information
Indications: The LAP-BAND® System is indicated for weight reduction for patients with obesity, with a Body Mass Index (BMI) of at least 40 kg/m2 or a BMI of at least 30 kg/m2with one or more obesity-related co-morbid conditions. It is indicated for use only in adult patients who have failed more conservative weight reduction alternatives, such as supervised diet, exercise and behavior modification programs. Patients who elect to have this surgery must make the commitment to accept significant changes in their eating habits for the rest of their lives.
Contraindications: The LAP-BAND® System is not recommended for non-adult patients, patients with conditions that may make them poor surgical candidates or increase the risk of poor results (e.g., inflammatory or cardiopulmonary diseases, GI conditions, symptoms or family history of autoimmune disease, cirrhosis), who are unwilling or unable to comply with the required dietary restrictions, who have alcohol or drug addictions, or who currently are or may be pregnant.
Warnings: The LAP-BAND® System is a long-term implant. Explant and replacement surgery may be required. Patients who become pregnant or severely ill, or who require more extensive nutrition may require deflation of their bands. Anti-inflammatory agents, such as aspirin, should be used with caution and may contribute to an increased risk of band erosion.
Adverse Events: Placement of the LAP-BAND® System is major surgery and, as with any surgery, death can occur. Possible complications include the risks associated with the medications and methods used during surgery, the risks associated with any surgical procedure, and the patient’s ability to tolerate a foreign object implanted in the body. Band slippage, erosion and deflation, reflux, obstruction of the stomach, dilation of the esophagus, infection, or nausea and vomiting may occur. Reoperation may be required. Rapid weight loss may result in complications that may require additional surgery. Deflation of the band may alleviate excessively rapid weight loss or esophageal dilation.
