Commenting on a recent article, the Los Angeles based bariatric surgery center notes that increasing taxes on sugary drinks may help to prevent weight problems in some, but people who are already severely obese need other kinds of assistance.

Bariatric surgery can help severely obese individuals lose a significant amount of weight.

Dr. Feiz & Associates note that although the often controversial idea of reducing consumption of sugary drinks through taxation can possibly be helpful in preventing obesity...much more needs to be done for individuals who are already severely obese.

According to an October 11 article published on the Huffington Post, the World Health Organization (WHO) suggests that a 20% tax increase on sugar-laden drinks can potentially discourage excess consumption and prevent obesity in some individuals. Dr. Feiz & Associates note that although the often controversial idea of reducing consumption of sugary drinks through taxation can possibly be helpful, at least in theory, in terms of preventing obesity in children and others, much more needs to be done for individuals who are already severely obese. The Los Angeles based bariatric center notes that highly-effective weight loss surgery procedures not only help patients lose a significant amount of weight, but it has been shown that they can also resolve a variety of obesity-related health and wellness conditions, such as:

Type 2 Diabetes - Dr. Feiz & Associates notes that type 2 diabetes is by far one of the most common and potentially devastating diseases related to obesity. Moreover, poorly managed diabetes can also lead to a number of serious complications such as nerve and eye damage and a significantly increased risk of heart attacks, stroke, and kidney failure. The Los Angeles based bariatric surgery center notes that a weight loss surgery procedure, such as a sleeve gastrectomy, can help severely obese patients lose a significant amount of weight while also improving their diabetes and, in many cases, assist in a complete remission.

Arthritis - The Los Angeles based bariatric surgery practice notes that constant pressure on the bones and joints caused by excess weight can exacerbate various forms of arthritis, significantly reducing a severely obese patient’s quality of life. Dr. Feiz & Associates goes on to note that, with a significant weight loss following a bariatric surgery, patients often experience a great deal of relief from their bone and joint pain. The weight loss clinic also adds dealing with the issue of pain can enable patients to partake in a more active lifestyle that promotes a long term weight loss and improved overall health.

Dr. Feiz & Associates concludes by noting that efforts to discourage the consumption of sugary drinks and other fattening junk food, particularly by children, are very often praiseworthy. However, individuals who are already severely obese need additional help, including bariatric surgery procedures to assist patients in the difficult struggle of losing weight and then maintaining their weight loss.
