Commenting on a recent article, the Los Angeles-based bariatric group notes that the latest research showing reduced heart risks following a weight loss surgery bolsters the many health and wellness benefits of bariatric surgery.

Bariatric surgery can reduce the risk of heart complications and can also provide many health benefits.

Dr. Feiz & Associates notes that the heart health benefits following a bariatric surgery are only just some of the improvements severely obese patients can typically expect after undergoing a weight loss procedure.

Research has shown a correlation between reduced heart health risks, such as fewer heart failure and heart rhythm problems, in individuals who have undergone a bariatric surgery, according to a November 14 article published on WebMD. Southern California-based weight loss clinic Dr. Feiz & Associates notes that the heart health benefits following a bariatric surgery are only just some of the improvements severely obese patients can typically expect after undergoing a weight loss procedure. Dr. Feiz & Associates goes on to note that, along with heart health benefits, bariatric surgery can also help severely obese patients improve or even resolve a number of other health conditions, such as:

Type 2 Diabetes - Dr. Feiz & Associates notes that, as one of the most common health conditions related to obesity, type 2 diabetes can lead to a variety of very serious health complications, ranging from an increased risk of strokes to kidney failure, if not properly managed. A bariatric surgery, such as a sleeve gastrectomy, may help patients significantly reduce their weight while also improving and, in some cases, even resolving their diabetes in many cases.

Arthritis - Excess weight can often worsen arthritis and related complications due to constant pressure on a patient’s bones and joints. The Los Angeles-based bariatric practice notes that a significant weight loss following a bariatric surgery reduces the constant strain on the bones and joints so that patients can feel more comfortable performing simple daily tasks. In addition, Dr. Feiz & Associates goes on to note that patients with significantly improved arthritis are able to participate in a more active lifestyle that can help to further promote weight loss and overall good health throughout their lives.

Sleep Apnea - Oftentimes, severely obese patients may suffer from breathing problems while they sleep related to an excess of skin and fatty tissue around the throat. Dr. Feiz & Associates note that a weight loss surgery can improve a patient’s sleep apnea by reducing the amount of weight and fat deposits that can disrupt a patient’s breathing during sleep. Moreover, patients who defeat their sleep apnea will often experience an increase in energy as they are able to sleep without interruption through the night.

Dr. Feiz & Associates concludes by noting that, as more research continues to show the health and wellness benefits of weight loss surgery, severely obese patients should rely on a highly skilled and extremely experienced team of bariatric professionals to perform their procedures.
