Intro to Gastric Pill Balloon

You may not believe it at first, but you can actually lose weight by swallowing a pill! Once this pill reached your stomach, it will inflate like a balloon and occupies more room, which helps you feel full and encourages you to lose more weight.
A gastric pill balloon, sometimes referred to as swallowable Allurion or Elipse gastric balloon, is a new technology that helps people lose weight without surgery or drug therapies. It also doesn’t involve the use of anesthesia or endoscopy.
You can lose a moderate amount of weight with this method as it delays stomach emptying and make you feel full throughout the day.

    Preparation for Gastric Pill Balloon

    You need first to find a skilled doctor who has deep experience in gastric balloon technologies, or you can contact a good clinic that offers such treatment. To prepare you for receiving the gastric pill balloon, your doctor may do the following:
    • Calculate your BMI and perform a comprehensive physical examination.
    • Examine the health of your digestive system and order certain lab tests.
    • Provide you with instructions and useful advice on dietary habits that you need to follow before and after the procedure.
    • Prescribe certain medication before the treatment to prepare your stomach for the balloon.

    Steps of Gastric Pill Balloon

    No hospital stay is necessary for the swallowable gastric pill balloon, and the procedure takes a maximum of 20 minutes to complete inside an outpatient facility. The procedure’s steps include:

    1. Swallowing the Pill

    Your doctor will tell you to swallow the pill with a glass of water. In addition, they will monitor the passage of the pill by X-ray imaging to determine the exact location of the pill inside the stomach.

    2. Inflating the Balloon

    The pill will turn into a balloon after your doctor inflates it with 550 mL of fluid, and an X-ray image will be taken again to check the volume and location of the balloon.

    3. Balloon Removal

    After 16 weeks, the balloon starts to deflate in your stomach. Your body will spontaneously expel the balloon into the toilet without external intervention.

    Recovery After Gastric Pill Balloon

    Clearly, you’ll not need to visit your doctor again because the balloon will dissolve on its own after around 16 weeks. However, after the procedure, you need to consider the following:
    • Drink only liquids in the first days after the procedure, and switch to solid foods once you feel comfortable.
    • Follow a healthy balanced diet or ask a dietitian to provide you with a specific diet program to help you lose weight through the next weeks.
    • Contact immediately with your doctor if you start to notice abnormal symptoms.

    Risks of Gastric Pill Balloon

    Mostly, patients feel satisfied with the results of the gastric pill balloon and rarely show any side effects or major complications. Thus, the risks and complications of this procedure are very limited.
    However, you may experience a few symptoms in the first 3 to 4 days following the treatment, such as mild stomach pain, nausea, and vomiting. If your body is unable to tolerate the balloon, your doctor can easily remove it via endoscopy.
