Weight loss surgery for the new year
Thursday, December 1, 2016
Do you find yourself making weight loss resolutions year after year without succeeding?
If you are overweight (35+ BMI) and you’ve tried to lose weight unsuccessfully in the past, bariatric surgery might be the right 2017 resolution for you.
Am I eligible for it?
Having weight loss surgery isn’t an impulsive decision, but the commitment might be one of the best decisions you can make if you are unable to manage your obesity.
Living with obesity contributes to health risks that grow more severe as they continue;
- High blood pressure
- Heart disease
- Sleep apnea
- Arthritis and joint problems
- Respiratory problems
Weight loss surgery can be that turning point. These conditions are frequently improved or reversed following the bariatric procedure.
