Re:Topic 5 Mandatory Discussion Question

Health risks associated with obesity include Diabetes, hypertension, sedentary lifestyle, high cholesterol and sleep apnea.  According to the American Society for metabolic surgery, Mr. C is a candidate for bariatric surgery.  Qualifying criteria includes BMI >40 or >100 lbs. overweight.  Mr. C has a BMI of 45.  Other qualifying factors include a BMI of >35 with comorbidities such as Diabetes Mellitus, Hypertension, sleep apnea, osteoarthritis, lipid abnormalities, gastrointestinal or heart disorders.  Along with a qualifying BMI, Mr. C has qualifying comorbidities. 

Mylanta 1000, 1500, 2100

Zantac 2100

Sucralfate/Carafate 0600, 1100, 1700, 2100

Health management: Mr. C attempts to manage his HTN with a low sodium diet, being seen for bariatric surgery.  Seems to understand that he needs to take action in weight loss

Nutritional – metabolic: Attempts to follow a low sodium diet, eats 3 meals per day with an evening snack, fasting blood glucose 146, high cholesterol, 100# weight gain in 2-3 years

Elimination: no information provided

Activity-exercise: No report of physical activity, works at a call center where he probably sits during his shift

Sleep-rest: Reportedly has sleep apnea

Cognitive-perceptual: No apparent cognitive deficit, maintains job, alert and oriented according to his ability to request medical treatment

Self-perception – self-concept: Seemingly aware of need to take action regarding his health and weight loss.  

Role-relationship: No information provided

Sexuality – reproductive: No information provided

Coping – stress tolerance: No specific information provided, but given his weight gain over the past 2-3 years I would say he has poor coping skills and stress may be a cause of weight gain. 

Problems for Mr. C include:

Hypertension- Need further assessment and treatment

Sleep apnea- CPAP treatment to have more restful sleep at night

DM- Need further assessment and labs to diagnose and treat.  Possibly needs Metformin as uncontrolled diabetes can cause complications following surgical procedures

Sedentary lifestyle- Mr. C needs to understand that surgery alone will not fix his weight problem and he must also make lifestyle changes in order for it to be successful

High cholesterol- statin and consultation with dietician. 

Diabetes alone can cause serious complications following surgery.  If you couple diabetes with the above mentioned problems Mr. C is at an increased risk for infection as well as major health concerns.  Some of the mentioned concerns are myocardial infarction, stroke, heel pressure sores, post-op wound infection and UTI.  Based on this evidence and Mr. C’s medical history, I would recommend that the problems are addressed prior to surgery to improve his outcome.
