Dr. Feiz & Associates comments on a recent study by noting that, while the discovery of the Beta-LGND2 molecule may eventually help some people lose weight, severely obese individuals can now benefit from bariatric surgery, a medical intervention that has been proven to help defeat severe obesity.

A bariatric procedure can help patients lose a significant amount of weight.

Dr. Feiz & Associates notes that while encouraging the growth of brown fat may eventually help promote some level of weight loss in some patients at some point in the future, bariatric surgery remains a safe, proven and highly effective intervention...

According to an October 14 article on Science Daily, researchers have discovered that a chemical called Beta-LGND2 can convert harmful white fat into brown fat when tested in mice. Brown fat is believed to provide metabolic benefits that may be helpful in weight loss. Los Angeles bariatric surgery center, Dr. Feiz & Associates notes that while encouraging the growth of brown fat may eventually help promote some level of weight loss in some patients at some point in the future, bariatric surgery remains a safe, proven and highly effective intervention that has already helped countless severely obese women and men. The bariatric surgery clinic goes on to note a significant weight loss can improve or even resolve a variety of health complications, such as:

Type 2 Diabetes - Dr. Feiz & Associates notes that many severely obese patients suffer from type 2 diabetes and are at a greater risk of developing future diabetes-related complications, such as strokes and heart attacks, as well as nerve and eye damage. A cutting-edge bariatric surgery, such as a sleeve gastrectomy, can help patients lose a significant amount of weight while also improving and, in some cases, fully resolving their diabetes.

Heart Disease - Many patients struggling with severe obesity will also suffer from heart disease at some point in their lives. Dr. Feiz & Associates notes that excessive body fat can prevent the heart from working correctly, leading to high blood pressure, poor cholesterol levels, and an increased risk of heart disease and heart attacks. A significant weight loss following a bariatric surgery can improve a patient’s heart function and reduce their risk of a heart attack and other life-threatening complications. This improvement in heart function not only increases their lifespan so that patients can live longer and healthier lives, it will also typically improve a patient’s overall quality of life.

Sleep Apnea - Severely obese patients often struggle with obstructive sleep apnea, a condition where excess fat around the neck blocks a patient’s airway and interrupts breathing during sleep. Dr. Feiz & Associates notes that a significant weight loss following a bariatric surgery can often resolve a patient’s sleep apnea so that they can benefit from a greatly improved quality of rest. The weight loss clinic adds that Patients with resolved sleep apnea are also more likely to experience increased levels of energy.

Dr. Feiz & Associates concludes by noting that, while new discoveries are regularly being made in the fight against obesity, severely obese patients don’t have to wait to experience a significant and long-lasting weight loss with a cutting-edge bariatric surgery.
