Is the sleeve better for me?
Doctor Answers 2
Thanks for the question, you are a good candidate for bariatric surgery,In the sleeve surgery the removal of the fondus and much of the stomach produces a significant reduction in the production of ghrelin, with the consequent effect on appetite control. Some series report similar results for the control of diabetes between sleeve and bypass in which 84 percent in both cases presented curing it.

A sleeve would definitely work great! Remember the sleeve is also known for having an "anti-diabetic" effect, a bit less than the bypass thought, but you will avoid long term complications if you choose the sleeve over the bypass like marginal ulcers, malnutrition, vitamin deficiencies, osteoporosis, internal hernias, etc. and the sleeve definitely has the potential to help you lose the weight. I hope this helps.
