The Journey to a Healthier You: Bariatric Surgery for Long-Term Weight Loss

Obesity – A Worldwide Problem

Obesity is a widespread, long-term condition that affects millions of people worldwide – in 2016, more than 650 million adults had been classified as obese. It is usually associated with health problems such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and some types of cancer. Fortunately, there are many options to tackle obesity, from lifestyle changes to medications and bariatric surgery.

Bariatric Surgery – An Effective Solution

Bariatric surgery (also known as weight loss surgery) alters the stomach’s size to control the amount of food consumed. It is recommended for those with an BMI of 40 or higher (or 35 or higher if there are obesity-related health conditions). Studies have found that this procedure can lead to up to 60% loss of excess weight within two years of having it done. It not only improves physical health but helps with mental issues like depression and anxiety too.

In addition, bariatric surgery can ameliorate or even cure health issues related to obesity such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep apnea and joint pain. The surgery’s ability to reduce insulin resistance leads to better glucose regulation and may even eliminate the need for diabetes medication in certain cases. Plus, it can enhance overall quality of life by boosting mobility and reducing medication dependency – studies show that it greatly improves physical functioning, social interaction and emotional wellbeing too.
