Quick Facts To Read Under Obesity Clinic

Learn about obesity

Obesity is a complex disorder that involves collecting an excessive amount of body fat. It is not just a cosmetic problem but also increases risk relating to other health problems like diabetes, heart problems, cancer, and high blood pressure.

People face many problems when they become overweight, which mainly arises when the normal BMI or Body Mass Index increases. In other words, to be obese, a person must have more body fat than their muscle, other body fluids, and bones. So, the easiest way to measure whether you are obese is by checking or measuring your BMI or waist circumference.

People affected by obesity generally suffer from genetic, behavioural, and environmental conditions that they cannot solve through dieting. Moreover, the disorder increases the likelihood of other diseases and related health problems.

However, the good news is you can improve your health by losing even a modest amount of weight. You can do this by increasing physical activity, changing your diet, and improving your behaviour. In addition, doctors will also provide medicines and weight-loss processes for treating obesity quickly.

The most common diseases that people suffering from obesity face are as follows:

  • Stroke
  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Gallbladder disease
  • Cancer
  • Gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GERD)
  • Respiratory problems and Sleep Apnoea

  • Calculate your Body Mass Index (BMI). If it’s 37.5 or higher, or if it’s 32.5 with at least two other health issues, Bariatric surgery could be an option.
  • If you’ve tried and failed with other weight loss methods like exercise and diets, Bariatric surgery might be worth considering.

  • Body Contouring surgery, including abdominoplasty, liposuction, and tummy tucking
  • Bariatric and metabolic surgery
  • Single-incision laparoscopic surgery

Gastric Banding

It is an effective operative weight loss process that involves placing a band of silicon on the upper part of the stomach to reduce its size and the amount of food intake. Moreover, it is an adjustable day-care process that is easily reversible. Patients going through this process have noticed a weight loss of up to 35 to 45%. This is because after going through the process, you can only hold a maximum of one ounce of food.

Mini Gastric Bypass surgery

This gastric bypass weight loss surgery offered at Sahyadri Hospital is a short, successful, simple, and reversible laparoscopic process. It helps patients treat many severe health conditions, such as Heart problems, type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, etc. The operation is performed in a shorter period and requires you to stay for lesser or similar months as regular bypass.

It may be necessary for you to go through this type of surgery when medications, diet, and exercise are unable to produce an effective result. Moreover, with this process’s help, patients can lose almost 60 percent of their excess weight.

Roux-en-Y gastric bypass

RYGB is a type of weight-loss surgery, also known as bariatric surgery, undertaken by many obese patients. The process involves creating a small packet from the stomach and directly connecting it to the small intestine, bypassing the first section of the small intestine and most parts of your stomach.

Doctors recommend this type of gastric bypass only when exercises and diet are not working or if you have a serious health problem related to your weight. It is an effective method of controlling acute conditions and helps to return to the patient’s ideal weight in just 8 to 12 months.

Sleeve Gastrectomy

Sleeve gastrectomy is an operative surgical procedure typically performed using laparoscopy. In the process, the doctors insert a small instrument by making multiple small incisions in the upper abdominal area. Through this process, the doctors reduce the stomach’s size upto 80%, leaving it in the shape and size of a small vertical tube. By reducing the size of the stomach, you can hold less food.

In addition, the surgery involves changing the hormonal structure of the body, causing weight loss of up to 60 to 80% in just one year. These hormonal changes also help the patient overcome problems related to being overweight, like high blood pressure, heart problems, etc. Moreover, it is carried out only after the doctors have tried losing weight through diet and exercise but were unsuccessful.
