When a person eats much more than his daily needs, it accumulates as excess fats. This unused excess ’fat’ (i.e., calories - free fatty acids and glucose), is harmful to the functioning of vital organs like the liver, pancreas, heart, muscle and blood vessels.
This physiological mechanism of weight-loss following bariatric surgery, is mediated through neuro-hormonal factors, arising from the gut, fat tissue, muscle and brain etc., to lower the set point, thereby producing a lasting weight-loss effect better than any known modality so far discovered.
Every patient contemplating bariatric surgery needs to hear this! It briefs you the preparatory steps that lead to your surgery. Your pre-op checkups, your medications, your post-operative recovery, and precautions. A must hear!
A phenomenal number of bariatric surgeries are being done all over the world, (more than half a million world wide in 2013), the safety standards and outcomes have dramatically improved. Bariatric surgery like sleeve gastrectomy is as safe today as a gallbladder operation.
The first action for weight loss is a supervised diet and exercise program, with health supplements. But if you are obese ( BMI >35) and when you have associated metabolic illnesses like diabetes, high cholesterol, PCOS, knee strain etc. then, you qualify to undergo a weight-loss procedure.
