Re:Topic 5 Mandatory Discussion Question

Health risks associated with obesity that Mr. C has is sleep apnea, high blood pressure, high blood glucose level, high cholesterol level, high triglyceride level, and a low HDL level which is considered a major risk factor for heart disease. Bariatric surgery may be a potential intervention for Mr. C. We would need to know if the patient has a history of multiple failed attempts with diet plans, behavioral changes, and medical therapy. The patient is in the right age group for bariatric surgery because he is between the ages of 14-75. The patient is a candidate because of his weight, high blood pressure, sleep apnea, and high cholesterol levels. The patient would need to understand the procedure and its implications, and have the commitment to follow post-surgery diet instructions, vitamin supplementation, exercise programs, and follow-up necessary for health and weight maintenance.  Magnesium hydroxide/aluminum hydroxide (Mylanta) 15 mL: 1000, 1500, 2100. Ranitidine (Zantac): 2230. Sucralfate/Carafate 1 g or 10ml suspension: 0600, 1100, 1700, 2200. Health-Perception: The patient tries to maintain a low sodium diet and realizes that his weight is a health issue and wants to make changes with receiving bariatric surgery. This patient has good health-perception. Nutritional – Metabolic: Patient is trying to maintain a low sodium diet. Patient has high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and high glucose levels. Elimination: No information provided. Activity-exercise: Patient works at a catalog telephone center which could mean that he sits most of his day. Other than his job, there are no reports of activity or exercise. Sleep-rest: Patient has sleep apnea. Cognitive-perceptual: No abnormalities noted. Self-perception/Self-concept: Patient understands that he is overweight and is making efforts to help improve this. Role-relationship: No information provided. Sexuality – reproductive: No information provided. Coping – stress tolerance: No information provided. Five problems include high blood pressure, high cholesterol, high glucose levels, sleep apnea, and a potential for heart disease. The patients blood pressure is 172/96. This is an actual problem. The patients fasting glucose level is 146 which is high. This is an actual problem. The patient has sleep apnea which is an actual problem that could be potentially fatal if the patient does not treat it. The patient has a high cholesterol level of 250. This is an actual problem. The patient has a low HDL level of 30 which is considered a major risk factor for heart disease.
