Most people suffering from obesity do not consider excess weight as a problem. They seek expert help only when they develop one or other medical problem related to excess weight.
Obesity is a disease and can lead to more than 200 medical co-morbid diseases such as type 2 diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, heart disease, obstructive sleep apnea, osteoarthritis and certain cancers. Even Covid 19 related morbidity and mortality significantly increases with obesity.
These co-morbid diseases can be prevented if the obesity is dealt on right time even before the onset of these problems.
Bariatric surgery is indicated for individuals suffering from severe obesity. It results in long lasting weight loss and long standing remission from type 2 diabetes. It can prevent the onset of several co-morbid diseases and can resolve the same diseases in several individuals if they already developed these problems.
Do not neglect excess weight even if you are not suffering from any other medical disease. Seek expert help before it is too late.
