Why 3 out of 5 people are obese?

The increasing evidence of obesity rates for both adults and children are quite alarming. In every 5 people 3 are obese and this puts them at higher risk for increased health problems. The rate of severe obesity is continuously increasing in adults and the statistics reveal that about 72.48% of the world’s population is struggling with obesity.

Obesity is caused due to too much eating and lack of physical activity. Poor diet and lifestyle choices are another reason that causes obesity. In some cases, obesity is caused due to genetic conditions. While in most cases, obesity has more to do with the environmental factors. In some cases, the underlying medical conditions might contribute to weight gain. Certain medicines that are used to treat diabetes or mental illness can also contribute to weight gain. Another cause of weight gain can be side effect of stopping smoking.

Natural weight loss vs. Obesity Surgery:

The natural weight loss consists of taking slimming drugs, opting got crash diets and using fitness machines. Slimming drugs are fast and convenient to use for removing the fluid from your body. It allows you to consume fats and calories. However, when you stop taking these drugs, your weight will rapidly return to the way it was before. Also long-term use of weight loss medicines will have negative effects on kidney, heart and blood vessels and on the nerve system.

Although resorting to crash diets will helps you lose fats quickly, yet it has many disadvantages. Crash dieting will drop your metabolism rate and this will affect the flexibility of your body to burn fats. The fitness machines are suitable and comfortable for the lazy people and this will help increase the muscular movement as well as dissolve the fat in arms, legs and waist. Although they help you see visible results, yet the strong vibrations of the machine cause a gastrointestinal tract disease and a mechanical lesion. It can cause prolonged menstrual period in women using this machines.

The obesity surgery has shown to be quite effective for providing you significant and sustained weight loss. There are different weight loss operations that are available to provide you with desired results. These surgeries are safe when they are performed by a competent surgeon. You should undergo the surgery at a center which provides you an aftercare program that focus on dietary and exercise changes. You can also consider undergoing the surgery for obesity after considering the cost as per your budget.

Why Obesity Surgery is safe for you?

The obesity surgery helps in weight loss by restricting the amount of food that your stomach can hold with adjustable gastric band, gastric bypass or a sleeve gastrectomy. Today, the bariatric surgery is performed using the laparoscopic method which is a minimally invasive surgery. In this your surgeon will make a several 0.5 to 1centimeter incisions as compared to the open surgery. This helps improving the safety of the obesity surgery.

Best and Safe Obesity Surgery Treatments Reviews:

1. Adjustable gastric banding: It is a type of restrictive weight loss surgery in which your surgeon uses an inflatable band to squeeze the stomach into two sections. The smaller upper pouch and a larger lower section are connected by a very small channel that slows the emptying of the upper pouch. This operation is simpler and safer than the gastric bypass and scar is smaller, recovery is faster.

2. Sleeve Gastrectomy: This is another form of restrictive weight loss surgery where the surgeon removes about 75% of your stomach. Only a narrow sleeve or tube remains in the stomach which connects to the intestines. Sleeve Gastrectomy surgery is usually recommended for people who are very obese or sick or have greater risks for other obesity surgery. This is a simpler operation that has lower risk to lose weight.

3. Gastric Bypass Surgery (Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass): This is the most common type of weight loss surgery in which both the malabsorptive and the restrictive approach is combined. Your surgeon will divide the stomach into two parts and then connected the upper stomach directly with lower section of the small intestine. This will enable bypassing part of the stomach and the small intestine. This will allow skipping the digestive tract such that your body absorbs fewer calories. Studies have shown that most people have good long term results with Gastric Bypass surgery.

Choosing the best and safe obesity surgery will depend on your health and body type. It is advised to talk with your doctor regarding which of the obesity surgery is suitable for you. Ensure that you undergo the obesity surgery at the hands of experienced surgeons.
