The amount any patient will lose depends entirely on how well they adapt to Jump6™ Weight Loss Program, featuring the Intragastric Balloon, alter their eating behaviour, and adopt an exercise regimen. A good aim is to try and average a loss of 2lbs per week, and studies have shown that with the Intragastric Balloon, patients can lose and keep off 20-40lbs in six months. Patients at the Jump6™ Weight Loss Clinic in Sarnia Canada are losing an average of 40 to 60 lbs in 6 months, with the lowest being 17 lbs and the highest being 98lbs.
Experience has shown that 70-80% of a patient’s weight loss typically occurs during the first three months of gastric balloon insertion. After that time, the presence of the intragastric balloon plays a supportive role in helping patients to maintain their new nutrition and exercise habits.
There are no miracles in weight loss, as you well know. We’re in this together.
