Tips For Recovering From Gastric Bypass

Gastric Bypass

Gastric Bypass is a major surgery & requires a lot to recover completely.

The start towards the path of recovery would be tough to go through.

It will be super uncomfortable & you will be hungry for the most of the time.

Clear liquid diet won’t make you feel any better nor would it help with the hunger pangs. But that is all you can have in the start.

Start walking as much as you can after the surgery.

In the beginning take it slow but don’t sit idle & wait for the pain to ebb away.

Follow the post operation diet plan completely without a dark spot.

Join a support group to find a companion going through the same condition.

Stay Positive

Stay away from cheating methods.

Ask for help if need be to keep depression at bay.

Plan your meal time so that snacking could be avoided.

Bridges, Crowns and Implants: What do they all mean?

Dentistry has come a long way since its humble and sometimes terrifying beginnings. Today, there’s a host of dental procedures which address various ailments and maladies of the gums, teeth and mouth. This is also a cause for confusion as many do not know how to differentiate between what is out there. Not knowing the difference means not being able to figure out what you need!

Making it Simple

We’re going to address this unfamiliarity and walk you through three very common and popular dental procedures. We’re going to get into what they mean as well as what they entail and when they might be a good idea to get.

Here they are!

Bridges

The prime purpose of a dental bridge is to take the place of a missing tooth or teeth. The name bridge comes from the fact that the false teeth or ‘bridge’, is supported by real teeth on either side of it. In other words, it literally bridges the gap between them!

How Do They Work?

Firstly, dental bridges are synthetically made and require one solid tooth on either side in order to hold them in place. They serve to allow the wearer more flexibility when it comes to eating and improve one’s look aesthetically (fixes your smile). They also prevent the shifting and displacement of the remaining teeth that often happens when teeth are missing. Last but not least, it protects the teeth that remain from strain and decay!

When Do I Get One?

If all your teeth are perfect but one or two, dental bridges would be the ideal solution.

Crowns 

Crowns only fit over a single tooth. Like bridges, crowns are also made of a variety of materials including ceramic, stainless steel and gold to name a few. A crown helps to cover and protect a tooth that has suffered erosion or damage. It also returns tooth functionality.

How do they work?

Crowns work by protecting the damaged part of the tooth and preventing further damage. They help with mastication (chewing) as damaged teeth tend to sting when pressure is applied to them. Dental cement is used to hold crowns in place for extended periods of time.

When do I get one?

Crowns are ideal if you have a mildly damaged tooth that you need to have fixed.

Implants

This probably the most reliable (yet also painful) tooth replacement option. Implants are synthetically modeled teeth that are fit right into the jawbone in replacement of those that are missing.

How do they work?

Implants do just that. They are implanted to replace your teeth. The bottom part of the implant is often metal and fused with the jaw bone below. The upper part or tooth is what people see. These are made as the same synthetic materials as bridges and crowns. Unlike dentures however, implants do not slip out, nor do they need to be removed while eating.

When do I get them?

Implants are a great idea if you’re missing all or most of your teeth. These are also often a good way to go if your teeth are too damaged to support a crown or bridge.

Coverage and Cost

Though personally we all treasure our smiles and ability to eat, many insurance companies and employer-provided medical covers do not consider dental care as essential. Further, dental care in the US can be painfully expensive!

Alternatives? 

There is always the option of seeking quality dental care abroad. Dental care in Mexico is affordable and as reliable as anywhere in the U.S. A number other treatments such as cosmetics, fertility and bariatric surgery in Mexico are also quite popular among those visiting for health care purposes.

If you’re interesting in seeking dental or any other medical care in Mexico, give us a shout and let us help you put it together!

5 Types of Weight Loss Procedures, Surgery and how they Work

What is bariatric surgery or gastric bypass? To some, these terms might be completely alien; to others, not so much. A report from 2013 claims that bariatric surgery is one of the most effective forms of weight loss treatment used  to counter morbid obesity. That being said, there are a number of different surgical procedures which are aimed at weight loss.

Over the course of this blog we’re going to get into the details of some of these procedures. This includes their effectiveness as well as a little on how they are performed.

5 Different Types of Procedures

There are a number of different procedures used to address weight loss. Some of these as you will soon find are more popular than others. Without further delay, here they are!

Gastric Sleeve

Also known as sleeve gastrectomy, this procedure involves the reduction of stomach size. This is done by removing a part of the stomach. The name sleeve is given as that is the structure the stomach takes post surgery.

This surgery is meant to reduce hunger by making the patient feel full quicker. It is extremely popular due to its effectiveness as well as due to the fact that it is one of the quicker procedures available.

LAP-BAND

This involves wrapping and compartmentalizing the stomach with the help of a band. The bands in question come from various companies. This procedure reduces the size of the stomach (through band compartmentalization) hence makes patients feel fuller quicker.

Though this surgery too is effective, there are certain problems with it such as band erosion.

Gastric Bypass

This form of surgery works both by reducing stomach size as well as by rearranging the intestines in a way that allows for quicker excretion of unabsorbed food. In most cases, this food would be converted to fat cells hence the surgery is also quite effective in the area of weight loss.

This surgery is also known to allow for a weight loss of up to 60% within the span of twelve months.

Duodenal Switch

This technique involves a number of steps. These include downsizing ones stomach surgically, intestinal redirecting and gall bladder removal.

The results are notable health improvements by way of reduced hunger, non-absorbtion of excess minerals and immense weight loss.

Gastric Balloon

Believe it or not, this procedure involves placing between one and three balloons in the stomach in order to reduce space and make it feel full sooner. These are not your average balloons but special medical tools made of silicone.

This procedure is hugely beneficial for weight loss and other ailments but the balloons require removal on a six month basis.

What’s the Best?

We can’t really say what the best of these is. What we can say is MINI BYPASS, gastric bypass and sleeve surgery is definitely among the most sought out!

Conclusion

Though effective, if done in the U.S., some of these procedures can be quite a burden on ones finances. A number of people have proceeded to seek bariatric surgery in Mexico and other places due to the availability of affordable high quality healthcare. If you’re someone who is currently looking for bariatric treatment options abroad, pick your desired treatment and give us a shout!

3 Types of Fertility Treatments and how they Work

Infertility plagues a large number of people across the world. Furthermore, with our lifestyles being stressful, people tend to hold up on having children until they feel set and stable. That being said, the desire to have children is a real one and an inability to achieve the same truly devastating.

Many people think twice before seeking fertility treatment. The reason for this could be a combination of not really knowing what is out there as well as not being able to afford it!

Costs and Coverage

Unfortunately, fertility is not seen as something important enough for most insurance plans to take up under their umbrella of covered procedures. Furthermore, fertility treatment, especially in the U.S. is extremely expensive to say the least.

Variety of Treatments

There are a large number of fertility treatments available today. These include; fertility drugs, donor eggs, reproductive surgery, gamete transfer and zygote transfer to name a few.

We however, will focus on three well established forms of treatment and go over what they are about.

Fertility Drugs

Fertility drugs act by facilitating the production and release of certain hormones crucial to fertility. The three ways these hormones help is by enhancing the formation of eggs, triggering ovulation and making the uterus better prepared for implantation.

These are ideal for women with irregular ovulation or those whose partners might have weak sperms. On a flip side this treatment is ineffective in case of blockages in the fallopian tubes.

These drug based fertility treatment have a success rate of about 50%. That being said, fertility drugs can cause numerous unpleasant side effects which are both physical and emotional.

Reproductive Surgery

This is an approach taken when there are physical anomalies that hamper or prevent fertilization. One example is fallopian tube blockages. Reproductive surgery performed relies greatly on the type of problem present. This is because surgical procedures need to be altered accordingly.

There is no stable measure of the success rates of reproductive surgery. This is because success varies depending on the intensity of the condition suffered by the patient.

Another factor to bear in mind here is that this procedure is all out surgical. It could require extended in patient stays and recovery periods. In extreme cases, it can also be quite risky.

In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)

IVF is a procedure that involves a number of steps. These include extraction of the patient’s eggs. This is followed by Fertilization of said eggs with partner or donor sperm (depending on what you are going for). Finally, one of the numerous successfully fertilized eggs is implanted directly into the uterus.

This treatment addresses both those with damaged internal organs that make fertilization difficult and problems associated with weak sperms. It is also highly useful in older women looking to bear children.

This form of fertility treatment has higher success rates. The only con, at least in the U.S. is that it is extremely expensive.

Conclusion

Out of all the fertility treatments out there, IVF is considered to be the best, most effective and least problematic or risky. Unfortunately, the fact that it is costly forces many hopeful or aspiring parents to look into other less expensive forms of treatment.

That being said, medical tourism is a real thing and Mexico is very much a hub for medical tourism! There are a number of fertility cosmetic and bariatric treatment options in Mexico for those seeking inexpensive yet reliable and quality health care. If you feel you want to look into fertility treatment options in Mexico, we’ve got all the detailed information you require and a service that guarantees to get you the treatment you desire. Just look into your options and get to it!

3 Types of Stem Cells and their Uses in Treatment

Stem cells, could in a sense, be called the building blocks of the human machine. Varying stem cells serve varying functions. Stem cells produced alter over the course of one’s life. Last but not least, where these stem cells are found also differs depending on their function.

Why is This Relevant?

For those seeking any form of stem cell treatment abroad, it makes sense to have a basic understanding of some of the types of stem cells out there as well as their relevance in treatment!

3 Types of Stem Cells

We’re going to delve into 3 types of stem cells as well as how they are used in treatments today.

Embryonic

These stem cells, known as embryonic stem cells are derived from the inside of a group of cells called a blastocyst. This is what eventually advances to the cells that make our tissues and further, our organs.

Extracted cells are nurtured under laboratory conditions. These grown cells possess the versatile abilities of the original embryonic stem cells that they are harvested from.

These cells can be used to grow pretty much any part of the human body sans the umbilical cord as well as the placenta.

Tissue Specific

These stem cells also go by the name somatic stem cells as well as adult stem cells on occasion. These stem cells are localized and are generally able to grow and form the tissue type of the area they are found in.

One example is bone marrow cells. These can be used to grow all types of blood components but not organs such as the intestines, heart or lungs.

In a functioning human body, such tissue specific and localized stem cells give aid in growth as well as repair of the organ and other tissue in the place where they are found.

That being said, these are hard to locate and not as conducive to growth in a lab controlled culture setting as their embryonic counterparts.

IPS Cells

IPS stands for Induced pluripotent stem cells. These are engineered under laboratory conditions by inducing various tissue specific cells to behave as embryonic stem cells do.

Though IPS cells are currently used extensively for research, their application for treatment due to engineering techniques is still being debated.

What Good Are All These?

The question remains, how are all these stem cells used for treatment? There are a number of ways that these cells contribute to treatment both directly and indirectly.

Research and Development

Stem cells are used extensively for research. Research areas include human growth and development, genetic diseases (both degenerative and otherwise) and the study of various non-genetic yet deadly illnesses.

They are also used to help try out novel methods of treatment before opening to human testing.

Treatment 

The unique ability of stem cells to evolve into tissues specific to locality makes them the perfect option to treat a number of illnesses and ailments.

Some examples of treatments that employ the use of stem cells include extensive burn treatment, disorders and maladies associated with blood as well as certain forms of organ malfunction or failure or orthopedic conditions.

Winding Down

With more and more research being done in the area of stem cell therapy, it will not be long before these treatments will be available the world over and provided by highly reliable and qualified medical practitioners.

For the moment, practitioners in some parts of the world have had more experience with stem cell therapy than others.

Traveling for Treatment

Besides it being hard to find a reliable practitioner for stem cell therapy in the U.S., it is also extremely costly. Places like Mexico offer affordable stem cell treatments and therapies to patients visiting from other countries. They also boast other medical services such as bariatric surgery, dental care and cosmetics at a far less cost than back home!

Don’t Panic

Don’t panic. Receiving treatment abroad is easier and cheaper that at home! If you’re worried about all the planning and organizing, we’ve got that bit covered. All you need to do is decide on what treatment you’re looking for, scout your options and get in touch!

How Does Bariatric Surgery Help With Diabetes?

Diabetes is a serious health issue world-wide. As per stats, it is one of the leading causes of U.S. deaths, with about 29.1 million people in the U.S. diagnosed with diabetes.

More than 1 in every 10 adults of 20 years of age or older suffer from diabetes.

It is no hidden fact that a morbid number of 37.9 percent adults above 20 suffer from obesity. Obesity comes with several health issues, one of them being diabetes.

Getting Bariatric surgery has proven highly effective for people suffering from obesity and diabetes simultaneously.

Can Bariatric Surgery Help Diabetes?

Studies have proven Bariatric surgery is an effective procedure for people suffering from Type 2 Diabetes.

It lowers sugar level, and slows the progression of diabetes in the body, allowing your immune system to heal.

How Does It Work?

Healthy weight loss plays a great role in reducing the sugar level in blood for type 2 diabetes. Science has proved that obesity reduction surgery can affect how your body uses insulin.

Bariatric surgery changes how the hormones work in your gut, which in turn, affects the insulin production in your body.

Bariatric surgery also increases the quantity of bile acids produced by your body, making the cells more sensitive to insulin. This helps improve the way the body utilizes insulin, leading to lower sugar level.

Types of Bariatric Surgeries

There are several types of Bariatric surgeries.

Bariatric surgery usually occurs by removal parts of the stomach, reducing it to a small pouch and connecting it to small intestine. This affects your diet requirements; a small stomach reduces appetite and food intake. Or the surgery may create a re-route of the digestive system to bypass the stomach.

Either case, it reduces the food requirement, increasing body cell sensitivity, which benefits the usage of insulin breaking down the sugar.

Looking for an affordable bariatric surgery?

The cost of bariatric surgeries in USA are sky-high. That is why many patients choose to not have one. However, Mexico is a great medical-health alternative for Americans. They can get the same procedure at substantially lower prices.

Most Commonly Asked Questions Regarding Bariatric Surgery

We at International Patient Facilitators have been connecting patients with reliable doctors across the border, so that Americans can have safe and affordable bariatric surgery for weight loss.

Bariatric surgery is a quick and easy way to rapidly loss weight. However, certain complications related to the procedure worry patients. To clarify any ambiguities, here are the most commonly asked questions about bariatric surgery:

I’m I eligible for bariatric surgery?

There are generally four conditions which makes anyone eligible for a bariatric surgery:

  • A BMI (body mass index) of more than 40
  • Males who are 100 pounds overweight and females who are 80 pounds overweight
  • Serious obesity-related conditions like heart diseases, diabetes and high cholesterol
  • Repeatedly failing to lose weight through other means

If you identify yourself with any of these four conditions, you are eligible for a bariatric surgery.

How long will I be in the hospital?

Laparoscopy has completely changed bariatric surgeries and patients can walk away after the surgery just one night of the surgery. However, individual conditions may vary.

How soon will I be back to my job?

On an average, it takes around 2 to 4 weeks for patients before they can start their normal routine. This is mainly because the nutrition intake drops significantly and patients feel weakness for one or two weeks post-surgery.

When can I start exercising?

The exercising starts immediately after the surgery, as patients are made to walk. In case of laparoscopy, patients are able to walk only a few hours after the surgery.

However, when it comes hitting the gym, weight lifting and swimming, you will need to wait at least 6 weeks so that your body heals completely and you experience a significant stability in your weight.

Will I experience hair loss after surgery?

For reasons still unknown, patients do experience hair loss for 2 to 5 months after the surgery. However, this hair loss is temporary and can also be avoided with adequate vitamin and protein intake.

Is it safe to become pregnant after bariatric surgery?

Usually, a period of 18 months is recommended to get pregnant as the body weight is not stable until then. If a baby is conceived far too early, there is a danger of malnutrition in the baby, as well as the mother.

Women tend to experience increase in fertility as birth control pills do not work well during rapid weight loss. So an alternative method of contraception should be used in order to prevent an unhealthy pregnancy.

Is bariatric surgery painful?

Patients experience a little pain after surgery and are prescribed oral medication to cope with it. However, majority of the patients do not consider pain to be a major problem at the time of recovery.

Visit our website to learn more about different types of bariatric procedures including, gastric sleeve, gastric band, gastric bypass, and gastric balloon. We can help you set up an appointment with an experienced surgeon in Mexico for all types of procedures.

Healthy Pregnancy, Post Bariatric Surgery

Many women feel that a pregnancy after a bariatric weight loss surgery can be unsafe and risky.

This is far from the truth. In fact, for most women, pregnancy is healthier and safer after the weight loss surgery.

However, this does not mean that bariatric surgery patients do not need to take special care and precautions when they get pregnant. Here are certain important considerations for bariatric surgery during a pregnancy:

Waiting 18 months to get pregnant

The safest period to get pregnant is 18 months after the surgery, when the body weight has completely stabilized. However, this doesn’t mean that if you get pregnant before the 18-month period, there is any danger to your baby’s health. Some women are able to have healthy pregnancies even before 12 months.

Bariatric surgery doesn’t have any connection to the body part where the baby is nurtured. The only issue is rapid weight loss, which can cause malnutrition in the baby as well as the mother. This is why doctors recommend a period of 18 months.

Monitoring Nutrient Intake

Even after the initial period after the surgery, women experience nutritional deficiency. The deficiency is mainly related to calcium, vitamin D, iron and B12. Some women may even experience fat mal-absorption and protein-calorie malnutrition.

It also becomes difficult to consume nutrients because of nausea during pregnancy; this is why it is important to strictly monitor the nutrient intake. Consulting a clinical nutritionist would be a good idea.

Informing the obstetrician/gynecologist

Bariatric surgery is still relatively uncommon. Many health care providers do not know how to deal with bariatric patients.

This is why it is always recommended to inform all the health care providers, especially the obstetrician-gynecologist, when a bariatric patient decides to get pregnant. This ensures that everyone is on board, and have enough time to do their research and provide appropriate health care.

Dealing with the emotional effects

Emotional effects of pregnancy are well-known, but for bariatric patients the affects may multiply. This is because women are unable to cope with the idea that their body will start to grow again. Some scars from the surgery may also not look good when the body grows, which can lead to self-consciousness.

To cope with the emotional effects, women need to think what’s best for the baby, rather for themselves. Consulting a psychologist can also be of immense help.

Having a C-section

Bariatric patients are more likely to have C-section, so it is recommended to consult with the health care provider. It is not known why this is the case, but women should be ready and plan for it accordingly.

However, a C-section can be avoided by strictly following doctor’s weight gain diet plans and taking childbirth prep classes.

Rest assured, a healthy pregnancy is completely normal after a bariatric surgery only if proper care is taken. This is why we provide patients with the reliable and experienced surgeons across the border in Mexico. Visit our website to learn more.
