Kristina introduces herself, explains why she decided to have the LAP-BAND® procedure, and describes the sleep apnea symptoms she used to have before losing weight.

Hi, my name is Kristina. I had the LAP-BAND® procedure three months ago. I have already lost 40 pounds, and I had it here at Tri-City with Dr. Naim.

What led me to come see Dr. Naim, my sugar levels were elevated; I was borderline diabetic, and I had severe sleep apnea. I look back and I wonder why I let myself get that big.

Sleep apnea – I would be sleeping, and all of a sudden I could not breathe, and I would gasp for air, and it was really scary.
