Health Benefits Associated with Weight Loss Surgery

Morbid obesity can lead to a shorter life and many life-threatening health problems, commonly referred to as co-morbidities. Scientists have shown that those struggling with obesity are twice as likely to die an early death than someone who is non-obese. With treatment, you have a better chance to enjoy good health and a longer life.

Obesity-Related Health Conditions

If you find yourself struggling with one or more obesity-related health conditions, weight loss surgery may be right for you. A list of some of the common obesity-related health conditions follows. (Your doctor can provide a complete list.)

While these diseases may occur regardless of someone’s age, gender, or body mass, these conditions tend to be more common and/or more severe when you are obese.

Studies show that bariatric surgery can successfully improve and resolve many weight-related health conditions. A review of more than 22,000 bariatric surgery patients showed improvement in or complete resolution of conditions, including type 2 diabetes, hypertension, and sleep apnea.
