More about medical weight loss & our medical weight loss nutritionists 

 

What does bariatric mean?

In the context of obesity, “bariatric” refers to medical or surgical interventions aimed at treating or managing obesity. Bariatric procedures typically involve altering the gastrointestinal tract to help individuals with severe obesity lose weight and improve their overall health. 

These interventions may include various surgical procedures like gastric bypass, gastric sleeve, or gastric banding, as well as non-surgical approaches such as lifestyle modifications, dietary counseling, and behavior therapy. 

Bariatric interventions aim to reduce excess weight, improve obesity-related health conditions, and enhance the quality of life for individuals with obesity. These interventions address the underlying causes of obesity, promote weight loss, and have a significant impact on well-being.

What are the risks of obesity?

Obesity in the U.S. is a significant public health concern, affecting a large portion of the population. It is estimated that 100.1 million (41.9%) adults and 14.7 million (19.7%) children are impacted by obesity, contributing to approximately $147 billion in annual healthcare costs. 

Understanding the risks associated with obesity is crucial in highlighting the urgency of addressing this issue. These risks include:

  • Mortality 
  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • Dyslipidemia (high LDL cholesterol, low HDL cholesterol, or high triglyceride levels)
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Coronary heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Gallbladder disease
  • Osteoarthritis (joint cartilage and bone breakdown)
  • Sleep apnea and breathing problems
  • Various types of cancer
  • Reduced quality of life
  • Mental illnesses such as clinical depression, anxiety, and other mental disorders
  • Body pain and difficulties with physical functioning
