Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) July 15, 2016
An article published July 4 on Daily Mail describes a recent study conducted on obese women struggling with fertility issues. According to the Daily Mail, a number of women in the study who lost excess weight doubled their chances of conceiving naturally. The bariatric surgery practice, Dr. Feiz & Associates, notes that obesity can negatively affect many aspects of a patient’s well-being, including the ability of a woman to become pregnant. Dr. Feiz & Associates goes on to note that with the help of bariatric surgery, severely obese patients can benefit from a very broad range of health improvements, such as:
Urinary health - Dr. Feiz & Associates notes that severely obese women can suffer from weak bladder control, a condition medically known as urinary stress incontinence. This occurs when excess weight weakens the pelvic muscles and patients are unable to control their urine loss, often while coughing, laughing and even sneezing. The weight loss surgery center notes that with the help of bariatric surgery, a patient can successfully regain control of their pelvic muscles and bladder once they lose the excess weight that puts pressure on the organs.
Bone and joint improvement - Excess weight can damage a patient’s bones and joints. When an excessive amount of pressure and force is put on the joints, they become swollen and patients find themselves at a higher risk for osteoarthritis. This condition breaks down the joints’ cartilage and causes pain and discomfort that may eventually lead to more serious disabilities. The Los Angeles based bariatric surgery center notes that weight loss surgery significantly improves bone and joint health as drastic weight loss decreases the pressure on the patient’s bones, joints and muscles.
Diabetes improvement - One of the most common and life-threatening diseases linked to obesity is type 2 diabetes. This occurs when the body resists and is unable to breakdown excess amounts of insulin, which causes sugar to build up in the blood. Dr. Feiz & Associates note that bariatric surgery can significantly decrease a patient’s resistance to insulin, improve their blood pressure and even decrease the unhealthy levels of damaging fats in the blood.
Dr. Feiz & Associates conclude by noting that bariatric surgery continues to offer severely obese patients with a variety of health improvements and benefits.
