DeeDee Helmers


Keeping up with the kids

Every mother knows it takes an incredible amount of energy to keep up with your children, and for DeeDee Helmers, doing so was proving to be difficult. However, thanks to a visit with Dr. Marvin, she now has the improved stamina to stay active and engaged with her 4 year old son. After struggling with various weight loss solutions, DeeDee sought out a consultation to discover the potential benefits of Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty.

Through careful guidance and a supportive staff, she was able to get back to work and continue on with her daily life within days after the procedure. Within months, she experienced the positive effects of ESG on both her physical and mental health. She dropped 45 pounds, set her cholesterol back on track, and adopted an active, healthier, and happier lifestyle that includes working out 3 to 4 times per week. As a result, DeeDee’s confidence levels have received a major boost and have culminated into better relationships with her son, her husband, and herself.

“In the beginning I measured and counted my meals, but now I’ve learned to just eat sensibly, trying to include high protein and low carb/sugar. I’m much less hungry than before.”

Less than a year after the surgery, DeeDee considers it to be the best decision she could have made and highly recommends the procedure to anyone toeing the line, unsure of whether to make the commitment.
