Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) December 13, 2016
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.
