Bariatric Surgery

Obesity or becoming overweight is something most people dread in their lifetimes. The complications of being obese itsn’t just the impression of your appearance. It goes beyond that and has direct effects on your health and overall well-being.

What is Obesity?

Obesity is defined as a BMI or Body Mass Index of 30 or more.

Body Mass Index = body weight in kgs/height in square meters

Because problems like diabetes, hypertension, and heart attacks occur at lower BMIs in Asia, the limit has been lowered to 25.

Snoring, joint pains, infertility, fatty liver, reflux, hernias, stones, and even cancer can all be linked to obesity.

Obesity is now recognised as a disease by the World Health Organization (WHO). It is also a major health problem in India and has affected more than 135 million people so far. Moreover, obesity, when combined with diabetes (a very frequent condition in our country), harms the quality and longevity of afflicted people’s lives.

What Causes Obesity?

Treating Obesity

The first line of treatment is a weight loss diet and physical activity. This should be supervised by trained professionals and bariatric surgeons as there is a large body of non-evidence-based treatments available for obesity. Getting an expert to look into your condition will help you get more permanent, safe and effective results.

What is Bariatric Surgery?

Bariatric surgery is the umbrella term for a variety of weight-loss procedures. These procedures alter your digestive system to aid weight loss. They either restrict the amount of food you can eat, impair your ability to absorb nutrients, or both.

When diet and exercise plans have failed and the person has a serious health condition as a result of their weight, these types of procedures are performed. The most frequent type of bariatric surgery is gastric bypass, which most doctors favour since it has fewer complications than other weight-loss procedures.
