Research has found that severely obese teenagers with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) caused by their excess weight appear to be at increased risk of scarring their liver, according to a study cited in an August 12 article published on Fox News. Los Angeles area weight loss practice Dr. Feiz & Associates notes that bariatric surgery can drastically improve and possibly even resolve a variety of health complications, including sleep apnea and NAFLD, which are linked to obesity. The Los Angeles bariatric surgery practice notes that after undergoing a weight loss surgery, severely obese patients are more likely to lose a significant amount of weight and may then experience an overall improvement in their obesity-related health conditions, including:

Type 2 Diabetes - An extremely common condition among severely obese individuals, Dr. Feiz & Associates note that type 2 diabetes can drastically reduce a patient’s overall quality of life. Diabetes puts severely obese patients at risk for a number of other health complications such as high blood pressure, kidney disease, nerve and eye damage, and numerous other health threats. The Los Angeles bariatric surgery center notes that these complications can very often be avoided with the help of a drastic weight loss through cutting-edge bariatric surgery procedures such as the sleeve gastrectomy.

Arthritis - Excessive weight can put a great deal of strain on the bones and joints and the constant pressure and damage may lead to significantly worsened joint pain. Dr. Feiz & Associates note that severely obese patients who suffer from such issues as osteoarthritis are also prone to suffering from decreased mobility as well as back problems due to damaged disks. The Southern California based bariatric center notes that weight loss induced with the help of a bariatric surgery is typically highly effective in lessening joint pain in a great many cases.

Hypertension - Dr. Feiz & Associates note that severely obese patients are also likely to suffer from high blood pressure, known as hypertension. Patients that suffer from these cardiovascular conditions are at a much greater risk of strokes, heart disease, and kidney damage. Numerous studies and anecdotal data support the notion that weight loss following a bariatric surgery can very often reduce or eliminate hypertension.

Dr. Feiz & Associates concludes by noting that a weight loss through a bariatric surgery significantly has been shown to improve numerous existing health conditions related to obesity and also reduces the risk for other complications from occurring in the future.
