New weight loss method involves swallowing balloons

About a year ago, Cathy Adler noticed she was gaining weight and couldn’t lose it. So, three weeks ago, the 65-year-old Fishkill resident swallowed the first of three balloons. Then, two weeks in she swallowed the second balloon.

Once the balloons are down, Adler’s gastroenterologist pumped a nitrogen air mixture through a catheter to inflate the balloon in her stomach and then removes the catheter. The balloons help keep the patient feeling full.
