The Los Angeles bariatric surgery practice notes that, although increased hydration can likely improve weight loss, severely obese patients need more powerful weight loss support.

New studies show that there could be a possible link between hydration and weight loss.

Even if sufficient water intake positively impacts weight loss, severely obese patients are unlikely to be able to hydrate themselves thin and need more effective support in the struggle to lead a healthier and happier life.

A new study reveals a possible connection between obesity and hydration according to an article published July 12 on NPR. Specifically, the new study shows that patients who are poorly hydrated may have a somewhat higher chance of being obese. Dr. Feiz & Associates note that even if sufficient water intake positively impacts weight loss, severely obese patients are unlikely to be able to hydrate themselves thin and need more effective support in the struggle to lead a healthier and happier life. The Los Angeles weight loss center notes that bariatric surgery is a proven method that allows severely obese patients to experience drastic improvements in various health conditions, such as:

GERD - Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) causes a severely obese patient to experience painful burning sensations caused by a weakened stomach valve that allows acid to escape into the esophagus. Not only is this condition, more commonly known as heartburn, extremely uncomfortable for the patient, it can also lead to more serious health complications such as Barrett’s esophagus, esophagitis and even esophageal cancer. Dr. Feiz & Associates note that bariatric surgery decreases the production of stomach acids, as well as abdominal pressure, which drastically improves their GERD.

Osteoarthritis - As one of the most common forms of arthritis that is linked to obesity, osteoarthritis is a chronic condition that breaks down cartilage and results in bone and joint pain. Dr. Feiz & Associates note that this condition makes simple activities, such as walking or standing, extremely difficult and painful. The Los Angeles weight loss surgery center notes that bariatric surgery is likely to reverse osteoarthritis and relieve other joint conditions once the patient drastically loses the excess weight that would otherwise wear out and strain their body.

Sleep Apnea - Dr. Feiz & Associates note that obesity is often linked to sleep apnea and other respiratory problems. Sleep apnea occurs when excessive fat and soft tissue obstruct the airway and prevent the patient from breathing while they sleep. The weight loss surgery center notes that sleep apnea also leads to low energy levels that can disrupt various aspects of a patient’s daily activities. Dr. Feiz & Associates notes that weight loss surgery drastically improves sleep apnea once a patient sheds their excess weight, allowing them to experience higher levels of energy and productivity during the day.

Dr. Feiz & Associates adds that bariatric surgery offers a variety of benefits to severely obese patients that struggle with health complications linked to obesity.
