Commenting on a recent article, the Los Angeles bariatric surgery center notes that, although exercise regimes are helpful for individuals who want to lose a few pounds and improve their health, bariatric surgery is the best option for severely obese patients to effectively lose significant weight and improve their quality of life.

Bariatric surgery offers a variety of health benefits.

Dr. Feiz & Associates note that, although exercise is important for patients to maintain a healthy weight and generally feel better, severely obese patients often struggle with mobility, therefore making it hard to consider even light treadmill exercise.

An article published June 20 on Huffington Post describes the results of studies conducted on patients hoping to lose weight by walking on treadmills. The article goes on to enumerate the many benefits of engaging in physical activity for a patient’s health. Dr. Feiz & Associates note that, although exercise is important for patients to maintain a healthy weight and generally feel better, severely obese patients often struggle with mobility, therefore making it hard to consider even light treadmill exercise. Moreover, Dr. Feiz & Associates notes that weight loss for severely obese patients is very often only achievable through bariatric surgery. The bariatric surgery office adds that, along with a dramatic weight loss, severely obese patients are far more likely to experience a variety of health and lifestyle improvements, such as:

Mobility- Severely obese patients very often struggle with mobility in their daily lives. Excess weight can strain and overwork their muscles, joints and bones, causing pain and, in extreme cases, near immobility. Dr. Feiz & Associates note that severely obese patients notice significant improvements in their mobility after drastically losing weight through bariatric surgery, enabling them to resume many of their favorite activities and exercises.

Respiratory Improvements - Many severely obese patients deal with sometimes life-threatening respiratory issues. Most commonly, Dr. Feiz & Associates notes, severely obese patients suffer from sleep apnea, which occurs when excess fat obstructs the airways while an individual sleeps and which causes them to stop breathing. Apnea is very often improved and sometimes even cured after losing weight through bariatric surgery. A stronger respiratory system, notes Dr. Feiz & Associates, enables the patient to experience uninterrupted sleep which increases their energy levels and decreases the risk strokes and heart attacks. In addition, increased energy enables patients to lead happier and more active daily lives.

Improved Metabolic Health - Dr. Feiz & Associates note that many severely obese patients suffer a variety of metabolic disorders, the most common and life-threatening being type 2 diabetes. This occurs when the patient’s system is unable to break down excess sugar causing it to build up in the blood. Dr. Feiz notes that after weight loss surgery, patients experience either a dramatic or, in many cases, a full remission in their diabetes. Of course, notes Dr. Feiz, this remission or improvement makes it far less likely for patients to develop a range of serious issues ranging from strokes, heart attacks, and kidney failure, to impaired vision caused by damages to the nerves and eyes.

Dr. Feiz & Associates concludes by noting that the outstanding benefits that severely obese patients can experience through bariatric surgery can drastically improve their health and positively affect their lifestyles.
