 Symptoms to Watch Out For
Serious obesity related symptoms (see your doctor):
  • frequent infections that are not easily healed
  • frequent urination
  • extreme hunger but loss of weight
  • unusual thirst
  • blurred vision
  • extreme weakness and fatigue
  • irritability and mood changes
  • nausea and vomiting
  • high levels of sugar in the blood when tested
  • high levels of sugar in the urine when tested
  • dry, itchy skin
  • tingling or loss of feeling in the hands or feet
  • loud snoring or noisy breathing during sleep.
  • restlessness during sleep (with or without periods of being awake)
  • excessive daytime sleepiness or irritability
If you have any one or more of these symptoms you may have comorbidities which are medical conditions that exist in addition to obesity and are often a result of being overweight. Comorbidities are a factor in determining a patient's eligibility for bariatric surgery.
