Next Steps

  1. Get Evaluated – Your doctor will determine appropriate screening tools and diagnostic tests for you. Your doctor may also work with a nutritionist and a nurse to complete an evaluation of your diet.
  2. Review the Results – Review the results from screening and testing with your doctor.
  3. Discuss Treatment Options – Ask your doctor for a treatment recommendation. Ask questions and review possible side effects of each therapy. Share any concerns you may have with your doctor.
  4. Take Action – With your doctor’s help, choose the treatment option that is most appropriate for you. Follow the therapy plan, including diet modification, regular follow-up visits, and other instructions.
  5. Seek Prior Authorization – If your doctor determines gastric electrical stimulation is right for you, please ask that he or she obtains prior authorization for gastric electrical stimulation from your health insurance company before the implant.
