Hypogonadism Findings Add to the Long List of Documented Benefits Associated with Weight Loss Surgery, Says Dr. Feiz & Associates

The Los Angeles based bariatric clinic comments on a recent article that improvements in male sexual health are just one among many less well known benefits of a successful weight loss surgery.

Defeating obesity has more benefits than many people assume.

Some of the more subtle quality of life benefits of a weight loss for both male and female patients are less well publicized.

A new study reported on in a September 26 article on Healio shows that severely obese men with hypogonadism, a condition associated with lowered testosterone impacting sexual health and fertility, enjoyed marked improvements following a bariatric surgery supported weight loss.

Los Angeles area weight loss clinic Dr. Feiz & Associates notes this is the latest in a long series of studies supporting the many and various benefits of weight loss following a bariatric procedure. They also add that correcting testosterone levels and improving sexual health and fertility is just one of a number of less well known benefits of a weight loss following a weight loss procedure. While most people are aware that losing weight can greatly lower the risks of such serious health threats as heart disease and strokes, Dr. Feiz & Associates notes that some of the more subtle quality of life benefits of a weight loss for both male and female patients are less well publicized. These include:

Improved Energy and Mood: Dr. Feiz & Associates notes that many of their patients report feeling far more energetic than they have in some time. There are many reasons for this, but one major reason has to do with the fact that, very often, losing significant amounts of weight means that patients may be experiencing an improvement or remission in sleep apnea. The weight loss clinic notes that this condition, associated with frequent but imperceptible interruptions in slumber, is very common among severely obese patients and has numerous consequences, some serious. Fortunately, losing weight typically produces better sleep and, with it, improved energy and mental acuity in many cases. The clinic also adds that increased energy may also be the result of a significant decrease in joint pain exacerbated or caused by obesity. Some patients report simply feeling more comfortable “in their own skin.”

Better Sex Life – Apart from the improvements in the specific condition of hypogonadism, the sexual health and performance of both men and women can very often be adversely affected by such conditions as type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure, says Dr. Feiz & Associates. Since weight loss following a bariatric surgery has been shown in a great many studies to lead to a significant improvement and, in some cases, complete remission of these conditions, many individuals find improvements in their overall sexual drive and ability; in other cases, sexual problems may be prevented before they start. Also, the weight loss clinic notes that improved feelings of self-confidence and overall good health can often have a highly positive impact on long-term relationships.

Improved Work Life – Dr. Feiz & Associates notes that, sadly, discrimination against the obese is a too-frequent reality. Studies have shown that very obese people – men as well as women – may be less likely to be promoted at their jobs, or to be hired in the first place. Also, their self-confidence, always an important part of building a successful career, may be adversely impacted. Dr. Feiz & Associates notes that many of their patients report that defeating obesity with the help of a bariatric procedure has allowed them to achieve more and be happier in their career.
