Risks associated with obesity

#Obesity is  pandemic, It is crippling with multiple associated ailments. It causes early mortality due to heart attack .Diabetes  Hypertension infertility, endocrine disorders, osteoarthritis & sleep apnea (disturbed sleep due to airway obstruction) are some of the diseases commonly associated with obesity. Bariatric surgery is the only solution to get rid of morbid obesity & its attending lethal complications. BMI >35 are suitable candidates for bariatric surgery.

Weight loss surgery achieves prolonged and sustained remission of uncontrolled diabetes ,high blood pressure and all other diseases. It remarkably improves life expectancy.

There are multiple procedures for weight loss, which one to go for should be decided after proper counselling  by the surgeon.

 

#Sleeve is a restrictive surgery where the size of the stomach is reduced from a bag to a tube.

 

 

 

#Gastric bypass is a restrictive and slightly malabsorbtive procedure. It is a reversible

procedure.

 

 

#Gastric banding is also a restrictive surgery, where a band is put at gastroesopageal junction. which limits the intake of food .It is not favored as it involves insertion of a foreign body with its attending complications.
Nowadays #MINI GASTRIC BYPASS is becoming the very popular operation.It is some restrictive and moderatively malabsorbtive operation.

 

 

 

After weight loss surgery every month 5-6 kg of average weight loss is expected & 60%-80% of weight loss is achieved within 1-2 yrs. If one follows proper diet and life style this weight loss is sustainable. Supplemental protein, vitamins and iron are frequently required along with small ,frequent low sugar low calorie food and regular exercise.
