Steve is a 40 yo male who decided to take control of his health. He had high blood pressure, sleep apnea on CPAP machine, elevated blood sugar, acid reflux, and chronic fatigue. Steve and Dr. Darido decided on the sleeve gastrectomy. After one year he lost 80 pounds. His high blood pressure resolved, he sleeps normally without a CPAP machine, he feels energetic, his blood sugar is normal and he has no heartburn. Steve enjoys running on the elliptical 4 to 5 miles a day.
