Know The Procedure Of Bariatric Surgery!

Obesity and a shapeless body are problems that plague many people around the world. Besides leading to an appearance that is less than ideal, it can also lead to severe health problems including heart failure, heart diseases, diabetes and more. While there are many ways to combat being overweight with the help of exercise and a proper diet and even medication, very severe cases of obesity can also be fixed with a surgical process known as Bariatric Surgery. So, here's everything you need to know about it.

  1. Affecting the Digestive Process: As per the normal digestive process, the food moves into the digestive tract, while its nutrients get collected with the help of a well functioning system that includes digestive juices and enzymes. This food moves through the digestive tract, passing through the oesophagus, before it goes down into the stomach where it meets the strong digestive acids, which break it down, and then it enters the small intestine. While the stomach can hold three pints of food at a time, there is a chance that some of this food may not get properly digested in the small intestine. In this case, the food enters the large intestine. Now, Bariatric Surgery helps in restricting the amount of food that a person can have and hold in the first place.
  2. The Process: This surgical procedure may be carried out by cutting open the stomach and removing a portion of the same. This procedure can also reroute the small intestine into the gastric pouch or the small stomach pouch. This process can also be done with laparoscopic invasion, where a few small incisions will be used to insert a tiny camera and instruments for the process.
  3. Ideal Candidates: If your BMI or body mass index is more than 40, then you can opt for this kind of surgery, as mere dieting and exercising will not help you in your weight loss endeavour. This surgery can also help in preventing the onset of type 2 diabetes mellitus. The patient also has to have reached the normal adult height in order to qualify for this surgery. 
  4. Side Effects: After the surgery, the patient may experience a few side effects including leakages and bleeding. An incisional or an internal hernia may also occur after the surgery. Also, for patients who have a poor diet, there may be complications after the surgery due to less intake of necessary vitamins and minerals.

Once you undergo the surgery, it is important to commit to a proper diet with less food intake and proper exercise on a lifelong basis.

Three Dangers Of Overeating During Holidays!

Three Dangers Of Overeating During Holidays!

Some traditions are unique in this country. On the top of the bill lies the ritual of sitting together with family during holidays and sharing a grand and unending meal. Although, this is really fun but the after effects of these get together are not very pretty; with the spread of hearty dishes, it becomes very hard to control the appetite and you end up overeating.

Having a party with friends or watching football or cricket match that is directed towards relieving the situation, but in reality, it makes the situation worse. If this is the only viable means of following your tradition, then it is time to consider what you are doing to your body.

Gastric distresses is just the beginning: Overeating during the holidays can lead to unhealthy weight gain, and in case you are already overweight, then it may lead to obesity. Now, this, in turn, would play its role in making you prone to heart diseases, blood pressure, diabetes and several other severe diseases. A single instance of eating more than you should may lead to short-term consequences that are not simply confined to bloating or excess gas. Expert gastroenterologists opine that seasonal overeating can have a ripple effect throughout the body which can also affect the nervous system.

Overeating is very harmful: After you have eaten more than your stomach can hold, the post-meal malaise you go through is not actually the outcome of the tryptophan in the chicken; it has resulted from the increase in blood flow through the digestive tract, and it's your body's way of protesting that you must stop now. Every disease has a cause that is often rooted in one's habits. One of the most prominent results of overeating is the deterioration of the digestive system. With a poor digestive system, you may feel nauseous, uneasy and a subtle weakness in the limbs and legs.

Limiting the function of major organs: If you eat more than your body can take up even occasionally, it will bring about an overload in the entire physical system casting a stress on the intestines, stomach, heart and other major organs. Your body has limited energy and blood and when you overeat, all the organs demand more energy for functioning optimally. Thus, just half of the required resources reach your limbs and brain.

There are various ways of enjoying with your close ones and overeating though may appear to be a fun thing to do, it has the power to impair your system. But if you have already indulged in the same, it's probably time to visit your gastroenterologist to help the digestive system to soothe down.

Weight Loss Surgery - What Are The Types Of It?

Weight Loss Surgery - What Are The Types Of It?

Obesity is unarguably one of the most regularly discussed topics around the world. A major section of the world's population is suffering from a variety of obesity related problems. There are a number of natural methods to check obesity; however, several medical surgeries are gaining popularity among the masses with instant results to reduce weight.

Here is a list of the most common types of weight loss surgeries:

1. Gastric sleeve surgery: This surgery is performed where removal of a large part of the stomach takes place. A long pouch is created, which connects the small intestine with the oesophagus. The pouch gets stapled and after that the other parts of the stomach are reduced. In some cases, an additional step is taken for reinforcement of the staple line.

Gastric sleeve reduces the size of the stomach and a patient will feel full after eating lesser amount of food. Because a portion of the stomach is reduced, lesser amount of hunger causing hormones are produced. The patient will therefore feel less hungry.

2. Gastric bypass surgery: This is another effective weight loss surgery, which reduces the patient's stomach size, resulting in reduced appetite. The intestines are rearranged, which makes the body absorb fewer minerals. While performing this surgery, the stomach is cut and stapled to create a pouch. 

The remaining stomach is attached to the small intestine's top portion, and the small intestine is cut and attached to the pouch as well. After this, the end portion of the small intestine is connected with the non-pouch part of the stomach and is attached to the roux limb bottom. This makes the stomach's digestive juices to meet the food present in the intestines.

3. Duodenal switch: This surgery reduces the stomach size in patients, which leads to decreased appetite or craving for food. Fewer hormones, which cause hunger, are secreted and the rearrangement of the intestine causes the body to absorb minimal minerals or calories.

A part of the stomach is removed and a pouch is created. The small intestine's top portion is cut off, but the duodenum is kept attached to the stomach. The small intestines are cut, and the part attached to the large intestine called colon is connected with the duodenum. Finally, the loose end of the small intestine gets attached to the small intestine to enable digestive juices to mix with food.

4. Lap band surgery: By this surgery, a band is wrapped around the upper middle section of the stomach which squeezes the stomach. Thus a smaller section of the stomach is created above the band which fills up very quickly while having food. The patient feels full by eating less. A laparoscopic adjustable gastric band is used.

There are many different weight loss surgeries. Most of them aim at reducing the capacity of the stomach, so that the person eats less food.

Can Obesity Lead To Erectile Dysfunction?

Can Obesity Lead To Erectile Dysfunction?

Deepak was well settled in his company. He was working as a manager for a team of 7 people. 

He visited my clinic for Erectile Dysfunction.

When he visited my clinic I first noticed his obesity.

"Doctor I started from the executive level in this company & today I am a Manager," Deepak replied when I asked him about his career.

"As the responsibilities increased so increased the timings of office & so increased the coffee & junk food consumption."- He replied when asked about his obesity.

" And what about alcohol & smoking" - I asked.

"Smoking once a day, and drinks occasionally - maybe once a week" - He replied.

"Your weight is 87 kg?" I asked him looking at case paper.

He replied "Yes".

"What efforts are you taking for weight loss?" - I asked.

"Nothing as such, I mean there no time due to the hectic schedule. But I am suffering from Erectile Dysfunction & why are you asking about my obesity?" - Deepak was curious and surprised by my questions.

"Because they are co-related" I replied.

"How?" - Deepak

"Obese men are 2½ times more likely to experience ED than those of normal weight" - I said.

"Firstly obesity leads to cholesterol deposits on the walls of arteries which supplies blood to the penis & this drastically reduce penis blood supply which in turn leads to erectile dysfunction. " Deepak was listening curiously "and also obesity leads to lowering the production of testosterone - the male hormone which has the direct effect of lowering libido & decreased energy levels."Deepak seemed surprised & anxious listening to me.

" Yes doctor, my libido is decreased from past few months. My wife also noticed this. I thought it might be due to work pressure & I ignored it." said Deepak.

" So now what doctor. I hope its nothing serious?" Deepak was little worried.

"Its treatable Deepak.. we will start medicines soon.." As I replied this there was a relief on Deepak's face.

We immediately started medicines. 

We focused our medications on reducing arterial cholesterol deposits, improving blood flow to the penis & to normalize his libido.

It took 2 months for the treatment. And Deepak recovered completely. 

Thanks to Deepak who also contributed to treatment by losing weight & avoiding junk food.

He is Happy Now.!

What Actually Causes Obesity? Popular misconceptions about weight gain: Stop the Patient Blame Game

Successful prevention or treatment of obesity is fraught with many difficulties, including challenges in having open patient-clinician conversations and overcoming stigma.

These difficulties are further heightened because obesity is often considered to have a simple cause, when in fact it is a complex disease with a multifactorial etiology.

Effective treatment of obesity requires a careful understanding of the facts and myths surrounding this disease and its various causes. Here, I will provide evidence-based explanations for the various causes of obesity as we examine some popular misconceptions.

Misconception 1) 'Food Causes Obesity'

To address this misconception, let's first consider the example of edema. Water balance is usually precisely controlled by the body through multiple hormones and mechanisms. Edema results from an impairment of the controls of water balance, not from drinking excessive amounts of water.

Similarly, the body has mechanisms to regulate energy intake and expenditure. The net result of these mechanisms could be a state of energy balance, negative energy balance, or positive energy balance, leading to maintenance, loss, or gain of weight, respectively.

Blaming food for causing obesity is like blaming water intake for edema or the glucose bolus for diabetes.

As declared by the American Medical Association and other professional organizations, such as the Obesity Society, obesity is a disease. The defect in energy balance regulation leading to excessive energy storage in the form of fat is the disease. Food does not cause that defect. Hence, food does not cause obesity.

But food allows obesity to be expressed, just like water allows the defect in heart or kidney functions to express edema, or as a load of glucose allows the detection of impaired glucose clearance in diagnosing diabetes.

Although obesity has many causes, as we'll discuss below, its current treatment involves creating an energy deficit by reducing food intake. The fact that reducing food intake may produce weight loss is often considered proof that obesity is caused by food. However, that does not demonstrate its role in causing obesity. Often, cause and treatment are not two sides of the same coin. Excessive exposure to UV radiation may contribute to skin cancer, but its treatment does not involve placing a person in a dark room, away from sunlight.

Misconception 2) 'Obesity Is a Choice'

A popular and simplistic assumption is that energy balance is completely under volitional control, which stems from the observation that individuals control their food intake and physical activity. However, the numerous controls up- and downstream that collectively determine energy balance is ignored.

There are numerous physiologic factors beyond volitional control that influence energy balance and keep energy storage within a reasonable range. Such nonvolitional controls may explain why some individuals eat seemingly huge amounts of food but have lean body weight.

Misconception 3) 'Calories In, Calories Out'

A popular misconception is that weight gain can be predicted using simple math of calories: If you gain 1 lb, you have eaten 3500 calories more than your requirement.

The dominance of genetic over environmental influence on body weight was also demonstrated in a study that showed a strong link between the body weights of adopted children and their biological parents, but not at all with their adoptive parents. These studies indicate a stronger influence of genetics on determining body weight than food or related habits of a household.

Furthermore, the body has mechanisms to resist changes in body energy stores, which can offset mathematical expectations based on calorie intake calculations. Leibel and colleagues showed that bodies that were overfed resisted weight gain by increasing metabolic rate.

Alternatively, on a weight loss diet, metabolic rate was decreased and weight loss was resisted. These studies suggest that mechanisms beyond a person's voluntary control regulate energy stores and can make it easier or harder for different individuals to gain weight.

Misconception 4) It's Just a Lack of Willpower

If we were asked to reduce the rate of breathing to 10 times per minute, we would certainly be able to comply. The critical question is, for how long?

Some individuals may harbor a gut microbe composition that is conducive to greater calorie extraction and weight gain, or some may have less brown fat, which may result in reduced utilization of calories.

If energy balance is influenced by impairments in the brain, satiety and hunger hormones, other hormones and enzymes, gut microbes, or the amount of brown adipose tissue, lack of willpower cannot be solely to blame for energy surplus.

If we were asked to reduce the rate of breathing to 10 times per minute instead of the usual 16-18, we would certainly be able to comply. The critical question is, for how long?

Similarly, it is a tall order to expect a person to volitionally eat substantially less than what the person's brain, gut, and physiology are asking for, for months and years on end. This is not an issue of willpower for only a select few; it is unrealistic and unsustainable for most individuals.

Misconception 4) 'Who Cares About Why? Just Eat Less.'

The word "cancer" encompasses many different conditions, with etiologies as varied as smoking, UV light exposure, or viral infection, depending on the cancer type. Similarly, the multiple etiologies of obesity indicate that it is a collection of diseases, better referred to as "obesities."

Cancer treatment depends on the type of cancer. Similarly, "obesities" require that the various causes and contributors are identified for effective treatment.

Current obesity treatments include diet and lifestyle management, some pharmacotherapy, and bariatric surgery on a limited scale. These are blanket treatment approaches regardless of the cause. If the individual causes of obesity were to be correctly identified, treatment could be directed to the specific causes, which may be more effective than current approaches.

the example in obesity treatment would be the discovery and use of leptin for weight loss. Most people with obesity are resistant to leptin action and have excess leptin as a result. Some individuals are born without any leptin. These cases typically present as kids with a very high degree of obesity.

Their obesity is not due to excess TV watching or eating junk food, as popularly believed. This type of obesity develops because leptin is absent to provide the usual feedback to the brain about energy status. Hence, the brain fails to take corrective action in response to accumulating fat.

The treatment of obesity due to leptin deficiency is not diet or lifestyle modification but simply leptin replacement injections.

Another example is the treatment of obesity that results from proopiomelanocortin (POMC) deficiency in the brain. Melanocyte-stimulating hormone is produced from POMC and conveys the anorexic effect of leptin via the melanocortin-4 receptor (MC4). POMC deficiency leads to impaired stimulation of MC4, resulting in greater energy intake. This condition is effectively treated with an MC4 agonist drug.

Deficiency of leptin or POMC is obesities of genetic origin that are successfully treated with a cause-specific approach. Other examples of contributors to obesity that informs treatment include endocrine disorders such as hypothyroidism, Cushing syndrome, or inadequate or poor sleep quality. These few examples underscore the need for further research to uncover additional causes of obesity and how they could be effectively treated.

Successful prevention or treatment of obesity is fraught with many difficulties, including challenges in having open patient-clinician conversations and overcoming stigma.

These difficulties are further heightened because obesity is often considered to have a simple cause, when in fact it is a complex disease with a multifactorial etiology.

Effective treatment of obesity requires a careful understanding of the facts and myths surrounding this disease and its various causes.

Bariatric surgery can be a powerful tool for weight loss in Very severe cases

Obesity - Do Eating Disorders Lead To It?

Obesity is a serious, chronic disease that can have a negative effect on many systems in your body. People who are overweight or obese have a much greater risk of developing serious conditions, including:

The prevalence of childhood obesity has increased dramatically over the past few decades, and obesity during adolescence is associated with significant medical morbidity during adulthood. Eating disorders and obesity are usually seen as very different problems but actually share many similarities. Eating disorders (EDs) are the third most common chronic condition in adolescents, after obesity and asthma.

In fact, eating disorders, obesity, and other weight-related disorders may overlap as girls move from one problem, such as unhealthy dieting, to another, such as obesity. Understand the links between eating disorders and obesity and promote healthy attitudes and behaviors related to weight and eating.

What is an Eating Disorder?

Eating Disorders describe illnesses that are characterized by irregular eating habits and severe distress or concern about body weight or shape. Eating disturbances may include inadequate or excessive food intake which can ultimately damage an individual’s well-being. The most common forms of eating disorders include Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, and Binge Eating Disorder and affect both females and males.

Signs & Symptoms of an Eating Disorder:

A man or woman suffering from an eating disorder may reveal several signs and symptoms, some which are:

  1. Chronic dieting despite being hazardously underweight
  2. Constant weight fluctuations
  3. Obsession with calories and fat contents of food
  4. Engaging in ritualistic eating patterns, such as cutting food into tiny pieces, eating alone, and/or hiding food
  5. Continued fixation with food, recipes, or cooking; the individual may cook intricate meals for others but refrain from partaking
  6. Depression or lethargic stage
  7. Avoidance of social functions, family and friends. May become isolated and withdrawn
  8. Switching between periods of overeating and fasting

What are the health risks associated with these disorders?

  1. Stunted growth.
  2. Delayed menstruation.
  3. Damage to vital organs such as the heart and brain.
  4. Nutritional deficiencies, including starvation.
  5. Cardiac arrest.
  6. Emotional problems such as depression and anxiety.

What is Obesity?

Obesity means being overweight by the accumulation of excess fat within the body. Obesity is defined to some extent by measuring Body Mass Index (BMI). People become obese by consumption of excess calories, imbalance between calories intake and calories outgoing, leading a sedentary life, lack of sleep , disturbances in lipid metabolism and intake of medications that put on obese.

What are the risks associated with obesity?

Obesity increases the risk for:

  1. High blood pressure
  2. Stroke
  3. Cardiovascular disease
  4. Gallbladder disease
  5. Diabetes
  6. Respiratory problems
  7. Arthritis
  8. Cancer
  9. Emotional problems such as depression and anxiety

How eating disorder and obesity are related?

Eating disorders and obesity are part of a range of weight-related problems.

  1. Body dissatisfaction and unhealthy dieting practices are linked to the development of eating disorders, obesity, and other problems.
  2. Binge eating is common among people with eating disorders and people who are obese.
  3. Depression, anxiety, and other mood disorders are associated with both eating disorders and obesity.
  4. The environment may contribute to both eating disorders and obesity.

Help adolescents develop healthy eating habits:

  • Help children learn to control their own eating.
  • Offer children a variety of healthy foods at meal and snack times.
  • Eat dinner together as a family most days of the week.
  • Be aware of your child's emotional health or else consult a psychologist
  • Encourage children to participate in sports, dance, swimming and other physical activities.
  • Counteract harmful media messages about body image. 

The splendid approach:

The approach should be quite simple. A proper diet plan, nutritious foods and fruits with proper exercise can do a world of good to you.

Weight Loss And Ayurveda!

Weight Loss And Ayurveda!

Losing weight at times is tedious and results can take a long to appear. Instead of losing weight, a few people lose confidence and determination and quit the weight loss regime out of lack of motivation. Thankfully, Ayurveda has an answer for weight loss and you will for sure enjoy standing on the weighing scale and get astonished at the results after following quite a few of them.

But again, you need to stick to the rules to see effective results. Kapha dosha is responsible for excessive weight as per Ayurveda. While there can be other reasons too, kapha plays a vital role in excessive weight gain. In fact, it works both ways - an imbalance in kapha can lead to obesity and excess weight can lead to elevated kapha. Ayurveda suggests swearing by the following remedies to see effective weight loss results:

Twice a day meals: consuming a healthy and balanced diet twice a day is the key to lose weight. While taking in portions is recommended by various weight loss regimens, Ayurveda has a different opinion. The digestive fire needs fuel, which is food. Taking smaller portions means that the fire will be kept burning often. With eating a healthy and satisfying diet just twice a day, metabolism remains at a tight pace. Eating too little or too much can only result in gaining excessive weight.

Eat right: usually, our breakfast timings might be anytime between 5 am and noon, but our digestive process is at its peak in the noon. So, make lunch a bigger meal as compared to breakfast and dinner. It is best to eat lunch between 11 am to 2 pm. The increased capacity of the digestive system ensures that the food is completely digested. Digestion-related problems may lead to weight gain. When you eliminate these problems, you are keeping off a major hurdle from your weight loss journey. Your dinner should be the lightest meal of the day. Do not skip dinner. Your system will be starving until the next morning if you do so. This will only hinder weight loss. Finish your breakfast before 7 pm or 8 pm at the maximum. Eating should be carried out in a calm environment. You should not chat or watch tv while eating. In short, your body and mind should concentrate completely on the food. Eat the foods that are suitable for the season. Eating foods that are available locally is even better. Nature has a reason to grow certain fruits and vegetables only in specific regions. When you reside at a place, the climatic condition and foods are all related to the region. These offer more benefits than imported foods. Ayurveda believes that six different tastes must be taken through food. Foods that taste sweet, sour, salt, bitter, astringent, and pungent should be a part of the meal. This is insisted for the overall well-being of an individual, apart from weight loss.

Drink warm water: drink warm water as the first thing in the morning every day. This helps in eliminating toxins. Even taking warm water through the day can help in losing weight faster.
Be an early bird: to ensure that there is no hormone imbalance, listening to the natural diurnal clock is mandatory. This helps in stimulating hunger at the right hours. Go to bed around 10 pm, and wake up before 6 am. But make sure to have your dinner at least two hours before sleep time and restrict screen time before hitting the bed. A stress-free and relaxed lifestyle are what you need to follow to stay fit and healthy and to lose weight.
