Gastric Sleeve for HIV+ Patients
What Is Sleeve Gastrectomy Surgery?
Sleeve gastrectomy is a surgical weight loss procedure that involves removing a large portion of the stomach to create a smaller "sleeve"-shaped stomach, reducing its capacity and limiting food intake. This can lead to significant weight loss by promoting earlier satiety and reducing hunger hormones.

What is HIV?
HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) is a virus that affects the immune system. HIV specifically attacks immune cells called CD4, reducing the body's ability to fight infections and other diseases. The virus can be passed to people in various ways, such as through blood, sexual contact, shared syringes or mother-to-child transmission.
HIV infection is usually asymptomatic and many people do not notice it for a long time. However, over time the immune system weakens, making the body more vulnerable to infections. If HIV progresses, the disease can develop into AIDS, or acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. AIDS is a condition in which the immune system is severely damaged and the body is unable to cope with often dangerous infections and cancers.
Preventive measures used to prevent the spread of HIV include regular HIV tests, safe sex practices, compliance with hygiene rules and avoiding shared needles or syringes. In addition, it is important for HIV-positive individuals to receive appropriate treatment and support in order to slow the progression of the disease and improve their quality of life. Therefore, increasing HIV awareness in the community and adopting prevention strategies contribute to reducing and controlling HIV infections.
Who Can Have The Surgery?
The eligibility for gastric sleeve surgery typically includes individuals who:
1. Have a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 35 or higher, or a BMI of 30-35 with significant obesity-related health issues.
2. Have tried and failed to achieve sustainable weight loss through non-surgical methods.
3. Are committed to making necessary lifestyle changes, including dietary modifications and regular exercise.
4. Do not have contraindications that could pose significant risks during surgery.
5. Are psychologically and emotionally prepared for the surgery and its aftermath.
Ultimately, the decision to undergo gastric sleeve surgery is made through consultation with a healthcare professional who assesses each individual's medical history, physical condition, and specific needs.
Reclaim Your Health
Why Choose Sleeve Gastrectomy for Weight Loss
Obesity is a complex condition that can have a profound impact on your overall well-being. If you've been struggling with obesity, opting for sleeve gastrectomy can offer life-changing benefits:
Overcoming Health Challenges
Obesity is linked to a range of health conditions such as type 2 diabetes, hypertension, sleep apnea, and joint pain. Sleeve gastrectomy can significantly improve or even resolve these health issues, leading to enhanced quality of life.
Long-Term Weight Loss
Traditional weight loss methods can often be challenging to sustain. Sleeve gastrectomy promotes significant and sustained weight loss by permanently reducing the stomach size, which helps control portion sizes and reduces cravings.
Shedding excess weight can improve your mobility and make physical activities more enjoyable. You'll have the opportunity to engage in activities that were once challenging, leading to a more active and fulfilling lifestyle.
Weight loss achieved through sleeve gastrectomy is often accompanied by enhanced self-confidence and self-esteem. Feeling better physically can have a positive impact on your mental well-being.
Reduction in Obesity-Related Risks
Losing weight can lead to a reduction in the risk of obesity-related health complications, such as heart disease, stroke, and certain types of cancer.
For those facing fertility challenges due to obesity, weight loss can enhance reproductive health and increase the chances of successful conception.
Positive Influence on Relationships
Improved health and self-confidence can positively impact relationships, allowing you to engage more fully in social activities and build stronger connections.
Improved Quality of Sleep
Obesity can contribute to sleep disorders. Weight loss from sleeve gastrectomy can lead to better sleep quality, improving overall rest and rejuvenation.
Overcoming the challenges of obesity and achieving significant weight loss can empower you to take control of your health and lead a more fulfilling life.
