Are you eligible for ReShape?
To qualify for ReShape, you must meet the following:
- A body mass index (BMI) of 30-40
- Failure to lose weight with diet and exercise alone

A disorder or condition that often is found with obesity is called a “co-morbidity.” You must have one or more such conditions to qualify for ReShape. Examples of obesity co-morbidities include:
- High cholesterol
- High blood pressure
- Breathing problems
- Heart disease
Some people are not eligible for the ReShape procedure. People who have had a previous weight loss surgery, are not willing or able to participate in the diet and coaching program or are pregnant or breastfeeding don’t qualify.
ReShape may be an ideal option for people who want help losing weight, but don’t qualify for or aren’t comfortable with bariatric surgery. This non-surgical procedure is an effective alternative to gastric bypass and a great way to kick start weight loss while helping you develop the habits and skills you need to keep the weight off.
