Bariatric-Surgery

Bariatric surgery accentuates weight loss in obese people who have not seen desired results with other weight loss attempts. It reduces the stomach’s storage capacity, which limits food intake and helps you feel full much sooner than normal.

To give a quick overview of obesity, it is excess body fat accumulation with multiple organ specific pathological consequences. Characterized by Body Mass Index (BMI),it is calculated by Weight (in Kgs) divided by Height (in meter) squared.

A BMI classifies one as:
Underweight< BMI 18.5
Normal weight: BMI 18.5-24.9
Overweight: BMI 25-29.9
Obesity Class I: BMI 30-34.9
Obesity Class II: BMI 35-39.9
Obesity Class III: BMI 40-49.9
Super Obesity: BMI 50 and above

Few factors, which lead to obesity, include:

  • Consumption of high calorie food (high Fat and Carbohydrates)
  • Consumption of excess food (too much food)
  • Not enough exercise and sedentary life
  • Genetic factors
  • Endocrine factors
