When looking at the options presented to Juliet the mother of a 14 year old girl who has had a gastric ballooning operation , they seemed to be limited. She states that both herself and her daughter had tried diets and exercise but nothing would work? Though in a country where "patient choice" should come first! their options be specialist private care, independent nutritionists or even low cost gyms were denied. The system seems to only want one type of treatment to deal with obesity and that is the surgical one.
People with a metabolic disorder will always store fat in unusual places of the body unless the disorder is treated.
Obviously someone who had a metabilic disorder would always fail in any diet plan, because people with a metabolic disorder will always store fat on places of the body that can't be removed, unless they went on a proper treatment plan/ protocol.
There are many options out there for people who have a weight issue, though patient's seem to be stopped from receiving this information, and are only presented with limited options.
