Obesity is an excessively high amount of body fat in relation to lean body mass. It is commonly measured by body mass index (BMI), which calculates the relationship of weight to height. An adult with a BMI of 30 or more is considered obese. Obesity becomes morbid obesity when an adult has a BMI of 40 or more or has a BMI of 35 or more in combination with a health-related condition such as obstructive sleep apnea or a disease such as type 2 diabetes or heart disease.
Obesity puts your health at risk Obesity dramatically increases the risk of:
> High blood pressure
> High levels of triglycerides2 (a type of blood fat)
> Type 2 diabetes
> Heart disease and stroke
> Obstructive sleep apnea.
Options for treatment:
Most nonsurgical weight loss programs are based on a combination of diet, behavior modification, and regular exercise. However, published scientific papers report that these methods do not help resolve morbid obesity because they fail to help people maintain weight loss. In fact, more than 95% of people regain the weight they lose within a few years after treatment.
Why diet and exercise alone may not help:
Several factors can contribute to weight gain. Diet and exercise programs address factors that can be modified, such as lifestyle and behavior. However, because these methods fail to help so many people achieve and maintain a healthier weight.
Weight Loss Surgery:
Weight loss surgery has been continually refined to improve results and minimize risks. Today, bariatric surgeons have access to a substantial body of clinical data that supports the use of surgery as a safe and effective weight loss treatment when other methods have failed.
Compared with other weight loss methods, such as dieting, surgery provides the longest period of sustained weight loss in patients for whom all other therapies have failed. It has also been shown to improve many obesity related health conditions, such as type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure. Many patients who have had bariatric surgery report improvements in their quality of life, social interactions, psychological well-being, employment opportunities, and economic condition.
