Would I be eligible for the sleeve?

I am a 51 year old female with Hashimoto's Thyroiditis and weigh 230 pounds. I have lost many times but can't seem to keep the weight off.

Having Hashimoto's thyroiditis and looking into a sleeve for weight loss is feasible. If you are looking to lose the weight and having a tool to help you keep it off you are on the right track. I would definitely look into this and you have no problem because of your age or medical condition. 

I hope this helps.
