Indian male. 27years old. 6ft. 117kgs. Hypertensive. Borderline diabetic. Asthmatic.

Hi, I'm from Kolkata, India. I am 27years old and I weigh about 117kgs. I'm 6ft tall though. Comorbidity issues such as hypertension, asthma, sleep apnea, joint aches are all there. Diabetes runs in the family too. I can barely use the stairs even. I have decided to undergo a bariatric surgery but I'm not being able to decide the procedure. Sleeve, gastric bypass or mini-bypass. Btw I'm a high volume eater with a sweet tooth. Please help me.
