Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is a disorder of the endocrine system that can cause infertility and other reproductive health issues among women of childbearing age. According to an article published May 17th on WTOC, studies funded by the National Institutes of Health have identified that weight loss and exercise could play a significant role in helping women affected by the condition conceive a child. The article explains that, of the study participants, women who adhered to a low calorie diet along with a moderate exercise regimen reported higher birth rates. Commenting on this article, the Los Angeles based bariatric surgery clinic, Dr. Feiz & Associates, notes that bariatric surgery procedures have been found to improve or even resolve conditions that may interfere with pregnancy, such as PCOS, type 2 diabetes, and hypertension. The center explains that severe obesity wreaks havoc on the reproductive system and that bariatric surgery is the only scientifically proven method to safely and effectively reduce excess body weight - and to keep it off in the long term.
Dr. Feiz & Associates explains that, even when people struggling with severe obesity attempt to lose weight through diet and exercise alone, they are often unable to break the pattern of “yo-yo” dieting, which is characterized by weight gains that equal or exceed previous loses. Fortunately, as the bariatric clinic explains, the gastric sleeve procedure is quickly becoming the most popular form of weight loss surgery because it essentially jumpstarts the weight loss process and supports the patient in adjusting their diet. Firstly, the procedure involves removing approximately 80% of the stomach tissue, which reduces its capacity, allowing the patient to comfortably eat less, and less often, than previously. Secondly, this removal curbs the release of ghrelin, a hunger hormone. As a result, the patient will experience far less of those all-too-common hunger pangs, making it easier to maintain an optimized diet geared toward long term weight loss. Dr. Feiz & Associates notes that bariatric procedures are by no means a cure-all; the patient is expected to change his or her relationship with food and, in most circumstances, maintain an exercise regimen as instructed by the clinic’s team of weight loss experts.
With the help of bariatric surgery, a great many patients are able to dramatically improve their physical health and fitness levels on a permanent basis, significantly extending their lives and greatly improving their overall quality of life.
