Back when I stopped being able to eat and stopped losing weight with my lap band, I was sent to a cardiologist to prepare for surgery.
She found a leaky valve. I saw her in July, started Profile in December, and a year later saw her again. That was 30 pounds later.
During that visit, she found an arterial dilation but the leaky valve had resolved. I saw her again this week, about 35 pounds later and lots of exercise minutes and the dilation had resolved.
So not only have I lost weight -- and I have just cleaned my closet of clothing that is too big for me -- again, but I have also improved my heart health. I was a bit concerned that the vaccine might have had something to do with the dilation, but if it did, it wasn't a long term effect, and much better than most of the COVID side effects.
