If you are considering weight-loss surgery, ask yourself these questions:

  1. Do you have a body mass index of 40 or more?
  2. Do you have a body mass index of 35, along with another medical condition, such as diabetes, high blood pressure or sleep apnea related to being overweight?
  3. Have you attempted to lose weight in the past but have been unable to sustain any progress?

If you answered "yes" to questions 1 or 2, and agree with question 3, the National Institute of Health guidelines suggest you may be a candidate for weight-loss surgery. Sign up for a free seminar and learn more about whether it’s right for you.
