Weight Loss - When It Is Must That You Consider Surgery?

Weight Loss - When It Is Must That You Consider Surgery?

Is it a Must That You Consider Bariatric Surgery?

Weight loss can be achieved through various means, such as behavior therapy, diet and exercise programs, drugs, etc. However, research has proven that once you are obese then the chances of you either losing substantial weight or managing to keep it off long-term is less than 1%. Hence most obese people yo-yo and almost always regain more weight than they started off with on the rebound with non-surgical therapies. Most drugs for weight loss have been banned in the long term because of side effects.

Cosmetic surgical options like liposuction and tummy tuck or abdominoplasty are again not really weight loss procedures but rather body contouring prospering to give a better shape and cannot achieve long-term weight loss.

Bariatric Surgery today remains the best solution for long-term weight loss for those with morbid obesity.

So when you are you’re extremely obese and have a body mass index (BMI) of 37.5 kg/m2 or more. (BMI or body mass index is a ratio of your weight (kg) / height (m2) ), or your BMI is above 32.5 kg/m2 along with associated health problems like Type 2 diabetes, sleep apnea (a common sleep disorder wherein you snore excessively and experience pauses in breathing or shallow breathing instances while sleeping), high blood pressure, high cholesterol levels, osteoarthritis or severe joint pains and have failed to achieve significant weight loss with conservative methods then you are a candidate for Bariatric Surgery.

Weight loss through surgery shouldn’t be looked upon as a shortcut to losing weight. It is a powerful tool to aid you to become healthier, but remember, "with great power comes greater responsibility", because after the surgery you’ll be required to make some lifelong changes to your eating and lifestyle habits to ensure a long, healthy and satisfying life.

Remember this is your second chance at life don’t waste it.

Gastric Band Surgery - How Effective It Is?

Gastric Band Surgery - How Effective It Is?

Losing weight is a daunting task. This becomes all the more difficult for obese people. In many cases, the patient may be advised to undergo bariatric surgery. There are many types of bariatric surgery. Some surgeries address both the stomach and the small intestines while others address only the stomach. A gastric band surgery is one such procedure. For this procedure, an adjustable band is placed around the upper half of the stomach. This creates a small pouch that can hold a limited amount of food. The band is connected through a plastic tube to a small device placed under the abdominal skin. Sterile fluid may be injected or removed from the band through this device. By injecting saline, the band is made tighter and by removing the liquid the band is loosened. This allows the band to be customized to improve weight loss.

The result of a gastric band surgery may vary from person to person. Physical recovery typically takes 4 to 6 weeks. Because the size of the stomach is reduced, the person will feel full faster and hence eat less. In most cases, a person can expect to lose 35-45% of their excess weight. This should not be confused with a person’s total weight. In some cases, additional procedures may be required to adjust the band or deal with any complications that may arise. The procedure may also be reversed at a later date if need be.

Some people may develop side effects and complications with this procedure. The most common side effects include nausea, vomiting and surgical complications such as infections, bleeding at the site of the surgery and issues with the adjustment device. Surgical complications connected with this procedure are rare and occur in less than 10% of the cases. Vitamin deficiencies are rare as this surgery does not interfere with the absorption of nutrients by the small intestines.

However, in some cases, complications may arise in the long term use of this band. This is typically seen when the patient does not undergo regular maintenance or reverts to his earlier, unhealthy diet and lifestyle. Ideally, a patient should get follow up checks every month after such a surgery. This allows the doctor to make any necessary adjustments to the device. Thus, placing the band is only the first step of the process to lose weight. Unless the patient makes a decision to follow the program strictly, success cannot be guaranteed.

Unhealthy Diet - How It Is Related With Coronory Heart Disease?

An unhealthy diet is an absolute no in daily life to remain healthy, fit and without any disease. Unhealthy diets fail to give the body the correct amounts and varieties of proteins and nutrients for a maximum proper health.
Too many intakes of calories lead to an unhealthy diet, which also increases blood pressure. It leads to a very poor calorie ratio-to-nutrient that leads to gain weight and also leads to malnutrition along with various health problems. Unhealthy diets cause chronic disease, hypertension, cancer, diabetes, osteoporosis and cardiovascular disease.
Therefore, unhealthy eating habits should be avoided and strongly abandoned.

Why Avoid Unhealthy Diet?

  1. It causes obesity. Increased intake of nutrient-dense foods like fruits, sugar, processed carbohydrates and animal fat leads to obesity.
  2. Nutrient deficiency is another harmful effect of following an unhealthy diet.
  3. Illness is another factor. Poor intake of nutrition leads to diseases like heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. Lack of calcium weakens the bones, lack of vitamin A and C suppress the body immune system leaving a person vulnerable to diseases.
  4. Increases the risk of coronary artery disease as unhealthy diet contributes to building up of plaque in the coronary arteries which can cause heart attacks.

Coronary Heart Disease - A Serious Issue!
It is a disease which leads to plaque building inside the coronary arteries, which supply rich oxygen blood to the human heart muscle. Over time the plaques either hardened or get ruptured and hardened plaque restricts the coronary arteries, which reduce the oxygen flow to the heart. On the other hand, if the plaque is ruptured blood is formed on its surface which also narrows the coronary artery and restricts the blood flow. And if the blood flow is blocked or reduced, then it might lead to Angina and heart attacks leading to loss of life. Angina causes chest pain it can also cause pain in the neck, back or arms. It is a state where one gets a feeling of indigestion.

Outlook
Changes in lifestyle, eating habits, intake of medicines and its procedures helps to prevent this disease. These steps can also reduce the chances of health problems. Therefore, a proper healthy diet is a must in a person’s routine because it serves as one of the links to coronary heart diseases. In order to live long, live healthily and live happily one needs to adopt a good eating habit, take care of the medicines they intake, certain input time of exercise, change the monotonous lifestyle to lessen down the chances of their occurrence. Adopting healthy food habits also enables the body to fight against diseases and infections, reducing the rate of illness. It also reduces stress and provides a good healthy and happy life.
