New weight loss procedures at SGH for those unfit for surgery

Singapore General Hospital (SGH) will soon offer a minimally invasive procedure that helps people lose weight. It is meant for those unsuitable for surgery and will be available from October. Known as Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty, the method has been trialled in three patients since August 2019. An endoscope is inserted down the throat and an attached device is used to stitch up the stomach. This reduces the size of the stomach by about 70% and restricts the amount of food intake.

  • Try fasting first. Drinking only water with electrolytes.

  • If possible, better to do Intermitten fasting(IF) for 18:6. Have a lower carb or Keto diet. Do light exercise like walking 15k steps a day at least. Weight loss will come when the body health condition is adjusted with the above combination.
    Losing 15kg is awesome. I lost 8kg in 2 months and still have a long way to go. Nonetheless I think it is better to try IF+low/no carbs+exercise instead subject to no medical conditions.

  • Stupid to have your stomach stapled just for losing 15 kg. This kind of operation is supposed for people weight 500 pounds above to lose weight.

  • naaaah just avoid carbs and only eat 2 meals per day with no snacking in between…no need any of these surgeries
