Riverside Weight Loss Surgery
If you are living with extra weight, you’re not alone. According to the American Heart Association, approximately 35 percent of all adults, or nearly 80 million people over age 18, in the United States are obese. If your weight is roughly a hundred pounds beyond where it should be for your height, you may benefit from weight loss surgery if you’ve tried other methods to shed excess pounds without success. Involving a serious commitment, weight loss initiated by surgery may provide several long-term benefits.
Weight-Related Conditions May Improve
If you have a weight-related condition, you may benefit from weight loss surgery. More than 80 million U.S. adults 20 and older may be at risk for developing diabetes, one of several conditions linked to obesity. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), excess weight also contributes to gallbladder disease and respiratory issues such as asthma. Returning to a normal weight range may make such conditions easier to manage or reverse or eliminate some of them. Losing significant weight may also help control blood sugar and cholesterol levels and keep blood pressure within a normal range.
