    I am 29 years old, 200 lbs and have a very out-of-control sugar levels. my stress levels are so high and I have tried every diet, and many different pills to control my diabetes. Is gastric bypass an option for me? even if I am not obese? just over-weight?

    Ginna – I have to disagree with your statement that “Gastric Bypass is a minimally invasive procedure…”. Rearranging your digestive system is anything but ‘minimally invasive'; it’s VERY invasive!
