26 Years Old, Pre-diabetic, First Consultation on Monday!

Hi My name is Sheyla, Im very happy i found this...

Hi My name is Sheyla, Im very happy i found this page where i can read different point of views and experiences.
My first consultation is on Monday, Im so exited but nervous.
I am 26, pre-diabetic and over 100 pounds overweight.
I have tried every diet and exercise programs out there and nothing works, i lose 10 pounds and gain 15.
But im afraid if my insurance doesn't cover the surgery i wont be able to afford it.
Im looking forward to this.
I will be posting updates :)

xoxo Sheyla

Hi!! Thank you I went to my consultation and im starting the process next week, on the 14th I have a sleep test, im nervous about having to sleep at the center without my hubby and son :) My insurance requires 6 nutrition appointments once a month. It will take a while but im happy, is just the beginning to a new life xoxo Sheyla

Good luck with everything. It does take time and hard work, but at least for me, it has definitely been worth it. I had the sleeve not the band, but the pre-op work is almost the same. You can do and I'll be following your journey!

Hi, they havent say if they are going to cover it for sure but they did say that if I meet their criteria they cover it, im following all of their requirements so it can be coverred. I believe all insurance companies say is not coverred but once you show them is medically necessary they do cover it, at least thats what they told me at the center I went xoxo Sheyla
