Feel uneasy about the idea of having balloons in your belly? rest assured, balloons have been used in medicine--specifically heart and cardiovascular procedures--for decades.
The reshape is a dual balloon mounted on a flexible shaft that is inserted endoscopically in the stomach and filled with saline. It works by restricting food intake and slowing gastric emptying. Insertion is done during a 30-minute outpatient procedure and the balloon remains in the stomach for six months where it mimics the natural curvature of the stomach to enhance tolerability.
In the reduce clinical trials (n=326) looking at the reshape, the fda determined that the device was safe and effective based on a clinical trial involving 326 obese participants aged 22 to 60 years who had at least one obesity-related condition. One hundred eighty-seven participants randomly selected to receive the reshape dual balloon had lost 14.3 pounds when the device was removed at 6 months as compared to the control group, which lost 7.2 pounds on diet and exercise alone. The results showed a 2.3 times greater weight loss in the reshape group compared to the control group.
They had kept off on average 9.9 pounds of that lost weight at the end of the following 6 months. The remaining participants who underwent a sham endoscopic procedure without the insertion of the device lost on average 7.2 pounds after 6 months.
The dual balloon structure is designed to minimize the risk of migration or obstruction in the unlikely event of a balloon leakage or deflation. Comprehensive counseling and support services such as in-office sessions will be provided to patients during the six months of treatment and for six months after it is removed.
Who are reshape candidates?
It is intended for adults with a bmi of 30-40 kg/m2 who have one or more obese-related health conditions such as hypertension, dyslipidemia, or diabetes and have had unsuccessful weight loss with diet and exercise alone.
Patients may experience vomiting, nausea, abdominal pain, gastric ulcers, and feelings of indigestion once the device is in the stomach. Intestinal obstructions have been reported due to deflated balloons passing into the intestines and have required surgical removal. Death due to intestinal obstruction is possible and has been reported with other intragastric balloons.

Atopic dermatitis is also known as Eczema. This is a kind of skin ailment that produces boils on the skin due to an inflammation of the dermis or the upper layer of the skin. There are many forms of atopic dermatitis.
Atopic dermatitis may be caused due to several reasons including a family history of the same, in which it is a genetic problem. It may also be caused when the patient has a weak immune system, which causes a reaction to any kind of disturbance in and around himself or herself, in which it is caused due to environmental factors.
Let us find out the various homeopathic means of treating this condition, and understand whether or this form of treatment is efficient or not. One must remember that any kind of homeopathic medicine or other forms of medication must only be prescribed by a certified medical practitioner.
Curing from the roots- The homeopathic way of treatment usually includes curing a problem from the roots rather than merely suppressing the painful symptoms. When medication is used to just suppress the symptoms, the problem continues to persist and becomes even more pronounced when the medication is not in use. For conditions such as atopic dermatitis, the doctor will usually prescribe medicines that will go forth and cure the very root of the problem that may be causing the condition in the first place. While this may be a time taking process, it will be a long term cure and treatment measure for the same.
Working on the immune system- In many cases, conditions like eczema may be borne due to stress-related issues, which usually lead to a weakened immune system. This is an issue that is addressed and treated appropriately by homeopathic medication so that the allergy causing elements may be treated and removed accordingly, even as the immunity is strengthened. This makes homeopathy an effective form of treatment for this condition.
Graphites- This homeopathic medication is used when the symptoms include constipation along with changes in the physical appearance of the skin, which becomes rough and hard.
Mezereum- This medicine is most effective when a crust like formation can be seen around the boils. The medicine is also useful when there is accumulation of pus under the crust.
Sulphur- Many patients suffering from atopic dermatitis complain of intense pain along with a burning and itching sensation, which they cannot seem to contain. This medicine usually helps such kinds of symptoms by soothing the affected area.
- Dulcamara- This medicine is most useful if and when the condition becomes worse due to a cold and damp weather, in which case the boils may flare up and lead to the oozing of pus and lots of itching. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a homeopath.
