Dr. Feiz concludes that weight loss surgery is one of the most effective ways people with severe obesity and large amounts of excess weight can improve both the quality and length of their lives.

According to an article published March 2nd on Clinical Advisor, researchers at the Cardiology Division at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School found that severely obese patients with heart failure experienced a reduction in symptoms following successful bariatric surgery. Los Angeles area weight loss surgery center Dr. Feiz & Associates notes that this research not only helps to explain the improved health of their current and former patients, but it is added evidence of bariatric surgery’s many already very well-established potentially life-saving benefits. The clinic explains that, because obesity places great strain on the heart, severely obese patients who undergo weight loss surgery can expect a significant reduction in hypertension over time as they lose weight. As the only scientifically proven way to help achieve and maintain significant weight loss, the surgery center explains, successful bariatric surgery can actually reduce the severity and even undo the damaging effects of obesity related comorbidities, such as high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, and high cholesterol. Dr. Feiz & Associates go on to explain some of these concrete benefits associated with bariatric surgery in detail:

  • High blood pressure: Dr. Feiz & Associates notes that, as a patient’s body mass index (BMI) increases from 25 to 35.7, the lifetime risk of hypertension in men and women in middle age doubles. The good news, the practice explains, is that by reducing excess body weight with bariatric surgery and making the necessary lifestyle changes with the support of a weight loss specialist, significant improvement of hypertension and other cardiovascular problems can be achieved.
  • Type 2 diabetes: While once considered an incurable chronic condition, Dr. Feiz & Associates notes that there is evidence that type 2 diabetics with severe obesity can witness a major reduction in the severity of their symptoms following successful weight loss surgery. What’s more, the weight loss clinic notes, many patients with type 2 diabetes have essentially experienced a complete remission of the illness and have demonstrated little or no need to take insulin or diabetes medication following bariatric surgery and successful weight loss.

Dr. Feiz concludes that weight loss surgery is one of the most effective ways people with severe obesity and large amounts of excess weight can improve both the quality and length of their lives.
