I am 45 years old, hispanic male, 5'9" and 250lbs. I have had high blood pressure for over 10 years.
I am currently taking Losartan HCTZ 100-25 mg 1 tablets once a day, Metoprolol 50mg 1 tablet twice a day. Still unsuccessful at controlling. Cholesterol is a bit high. I recently had my tonsils and adenoids removed and deviated septum corrected to help reduce my sleep apnea. My doctor's have told me losing weight would be the answer for all of the above. Would the sleeve be an option I could benefit from? Also, do insurance companies typically pay for these types of surgeries?
