Weight Loss Surgery Cuts Heart Risk

The main cause of cardiovascular disease is increase of fat in the body. When that fat or cholesterol is increased, it mixes with the blood and causes problems in flow of the blood to the heart and from the heart. This is the point from where the cardiovascular diseases and risks arise. Weight loss surgeries are carried out to take out the excess fat from the body. Weight loss surgeries like stomach stapling or lap band surgery or gastric banding will reduce the signs of cardiovascular diseases. Weight loss surgeries help to reduce the risks associated with heart which drug treatment cannot do. This is a lifesaving surgery according to the research done and according to the previous studies. According to the research done on 20000 patients on weight loss treatment, the risk involved with heart attack, heart stroke and heart failure were high blood pressure, cholesterol and diabetes. The high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes can be reduced by weight a loss surgery which in turn reduces the risk towards heart.

According to the world health organization research, about 2.8 million people die due to overweight. The bariatric surgery is taken by these people who are more than 100 pounds overweight over the ideal body weight and who have greater risk of death. For people with high risk of cardiovascular disease, the weight loss surgery would be a lifesaving surgery.

Weight loss surgery has many risks associated with it like bleeding, infection etc. almost the gastric band has to be removed for most of the patients because of bleeding and infection. As there is lot of risk involved with bariatric surgery other weight loss options should be explored first before resorting to bariatric surgery. The weight loss surgery should be chosen only by the people who cannot treat their weight in any other way. Severely overweight people can be benefited from weight loss surgeries.
