Highlights - OBESITY CAN KILL – GET CURED TODAY
DIABETES IS NOT INCURABLE
Bariatric Surgery was performed on this patient about a year ago. She was suffering from following problems –
1. Severe Obesity (weight 120Kg) – since over 20 years.
2. Diabetes – since 10 years.
3. High BP – since 10 years.
4. Joint Pains – 5 years.
5. Breathing Problem – 5 years.
6. Swelling on both feet.
7. Fatty liver
She has lost 45 kg weight since surgery and continues to lose more. She has been cured from all above mentioned problems. She is not diabetic anymore.
The surgery is done with laparoscope, so there is hardly any scar. Patient can start walking on the day of surgery and is discharged from hospital within 2-3 days. This small surgery has changed her life completely. This surgery can add upto 15 years to the life of patient as patient is cured from so many life-threatening diseases. It also deceases their risk of heart disease by 85%. Even patient feels much younger after surgery.
Bariatric Surgery is now covered under CGHS and ECHS as well.
We also do Diabetes Surgery / Metabolic Surgery – The surgery to cure / improve diabetes. Patients who are not so obese but are diabetic and their diabetes is not getting controlled with any other means can undergo this surgery. It is approved by International Diabetes Federation, American Diabetes Association etc.

Making a few lifestyle changes can dramatically lower the chances of developing type 2 diabetes. The same changes can also lower the chances of developing heart disease and some cancers.
Control Your Weight
Excess weight is the single most important cause of type 2 diabetes. Being overweight increases the chances of developing type 2 diabetes seven fold. Being obese makes you 20 to 40 times more likely to develop diabetes than someone with a healthy weight.
Losing weight can help if your weight is above the healthy-weight range. Losing 7 to 10 percent of your current weight can cut your chances of developing type 2 diabetes in half.
Get Moving—and Turn Off the Television
Inactivity promotes type 2 diabetes. Working your muscles more often and making them work harder improves their ability to use insulin and absorb glucose. This puts less stress on your insulin-making cells.
Television-watching appears to be an especially-detrimental form of inactivity: Every two hours you spend watching TV instead of pursuing something more active increases the chances of developing diabetes by 20 percent; it also increases the risk of heart disease (15 percent) and early death (13 percent). The more television people watch, the more likely they are to be overweight or obese, and this seems to explain part of the TV viewing-diabetes link. The unhealthy diet patterns associated with TV watching may also explain some of this relationship.
If You Smoke, Try to Quit
Add type 2 diabetes to the long list of health problems linked with smoking. Smokers are roughly 50 percent more likely to develop diabetes than nonsmokers, and heavy smokers have an even higher risk.
The Bottom Line: Preventing Type 2 Diabetes
They key to preventing type 2 diabetes can be boiled down to five words: Stay lean and stay active.
