Ready to Conquer Obesity?
The World Health Assembly reports that the highest levels of obesity exist within the United States and Mexico. This leads to a huge need for obesity treatment surgical options to assist people to counteract morbid obesity, change their lives, and restore health.
Your Weight Can Affect Your Health and Happiness
Tijuana Bariatrics offers a variety of obesity treatment surgery options that induce weight loss. Losing weight is extremely difficult and ineffective for many. Bariatric surgery accelerates weight loss by regulating and restricting their ability to eat food. Through bariatric treatment and dedication, bad eating habits can turn into a self-controlled, healthy lifestyle.
Determining If You’re Obese
The best way to determine if you are in fact obesity is to measure your body mass index, also known as BMI. In order to calculate this BMI number,
- Multiply your height in inches by itself;
- Divide your weight in pounds by that number
- Multiply that number by 703 to get your BMI
If the number is over 30 then you are considered medically obese and if it is over 40, you suffer from morbid obesity. Both medical conditions can be damaging to one’s health and life-threatening due to the increased risk of comorbidities. Morbidly obese people are generally about 100 pounds overweight and have a higher risk of developing heart-related diseases.
Surgical Treatment for Obesity
According to their research, nearly one in six adults are considered obese and nearly one in three teens are too. These bariatric surgery procedures are the most effective surgical obesity treatment options in the world. Obesity has long been considered a worldwide epidemic because of how fast it is spread and growing over a short period of time. Because so many individuals suffer from obesity, our Tijuana Bariatrics Center offers a large range of obesity treatment options to choose from. These options are proven effective in helping these individuals manage their weight and restore their health to optimal functioning.
Obesity Affects the Health of Your Body
While it is no secret that obesity has no known cure, an altered lifestyle and effort can help a patient to lose weight to improve their health. Obesity is a condition that worsens over a period of time and can place someone’s health in jeopardy the longer it continues. At Tijuana Bariatrics Center, we recommend that patients make a conscious effort to get their weight issues under control by choosing to have bariatric surgery. After surgery, a lifestyle change must occur in order to support the weight loss decision and continue on the path of losing weight regularly (and not gain the weight back).
Why You Need to Consider Obesity Treatment
When considering weight loss surgery, it’s important to work with a trusted weight loss surgeon to learn about all of the options available and determine which surgery type would work best for you. Bariatric treatment can help individuals put their life back on track. After medical weight loss surgery, one’s obesity can go into remission, which will lead to an improved mental and physical status.
Increased Cancer Risk & Comorbidities Risk
Obesity is associated with an elevated risk of developing cancer. The most common form of cancer found in overweight and obese patients include:
- Kidney Cancer
- Ovarian Cancer
- Colon Cancer
- Breast Cancer
- Prostate Cancer
- Gallbladder Cancer
- Thyroid Cancer
- Pancreatic Cancer
Comorbidities are medical conditions that may be considered an increased risk if a patient is overweight or obese. Some examples of comorbidities associated with obesity include hypertension, high cholesterol, diabetes, obstructive sleep apnea, increased risk of heart attack or stroke and Hodgkin’s lymphoma. All of these are preventable and controllable conditions.
