Commenting on a recent article, Dr. Feiz & Associates note that, although too little or too much sleep can impact weight issues, dealing with the problems of severely obese patients requires a more direct approach.

Bariatric surgery is a more effective method of weight loss for severely obese individuals.

Dr. Feiz & Associates note that although a good night’s sleep can provide a wide variety of health benefits, by itself it is obviously no panacea for severe obesity, and bariatric surgery is still the only proven method for helping patients lose weight...

According to an article published July 22 on Observer, a study has found that sleeping too much or too little can put an individual at a greater risk of obesity because of the increased levels of hunger and decreased levels of energy caused by insufficient amounts of sleep. Dr. Feiz & Associates note that although a good night’s sleep can provide a wide variety of health benefits, by itself it is obviously no panacea for severe obesity, and bariatric surgery is still the most successful method for helping patients lose weight and keep it off. The Los Angeles bariatric surgery practice notes that weight loss surgery not only helps severely obese patients effectively lose their excess weight but it can also more likely reduce the risks of numerous health complications by getting to the source of weight issues. These include:

Sleep Apnea: While poor sleep might contribute to obesity, ironically obesity can also induce poor quality sleep, notes Dr. Feiz & Associates. This is because obesity is often a direct cause of sleep apnea, a condition often associated with loud snoring in which patient’s breathing during sleep is interrupted. Dr. Feiz & Associates go on to note that a great many of their patients have experienced a reversal in their sleep apnea problems following a bariatric surgery assisted weight loss.

Heart Disease: One risk that definitely keeps some patients up at night are worries about their heart health, notes Dr. Feiz and Associates. When the heart is relieved from constant obesity-related strain after a significant weight loss enabled by a bariatric surgery, the patient can benefit from an overall improvement in their cardiovascular and overall health.

Type 2 Diabetes: One of the most life-threatening diseases linked to obesity is type 2 diabetes. Dr. Feiz & Associates note that severely obese patients are prone to suffering from serious complications, such as eye and nerve damage as well as an increased risk of stroke and kidney failure, especially if they have trouble managing their blood sugar. Losing significant amounts of weight after a bariatric surgery drastically improves diabetes and, in many cases, can lead to a complete remission.

Dr. Feiz & Associates concludes by noting that a significant amount of weight loss through bariatric surgery can positively improve numerous diseases and conditions – and knowing that their health issues are being addressed can definitely help patients to sleep better at night.
