Overweight and obesity are defined as an excess of body fat that can be harmful to health.

The body mass index (BMI) is a simple indicator of the relationship between weight and height that is commonly used to identify overweight and obesity in adults. It is calculated by dividing a person’s weight in kilograms by the square of their height in meters (kg/m2).

Obese people have a higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, joint pain (knee), high cholesterol, heart disease, certain cancers, sleep apnea (snoring), asthma, gastroesophageal reflux disease, infertility, depression, and with all that, life expectancy is shortened.

Obesity surgery (bariatric) has proven to be the most effective and lasting treatment for morbid obesity and metabolic diseases including diabetes, which can cause neuropathic diabetes in neurology.

The indication for surgery is given when you have a BMI of 40 or 35 with an illness related to obesity (diabetes, hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, obstructive sleep apnea, etc.).

Patients who have gone through any obesity surgery have had the following results:

  • 76.8% with complete resolution of type 2 diabetes and a significant improvement in 86% of the patients undergoing such surgery.
  • Disappearance of hypertension in 61.7% and a significant improvement in 78.5% of patients.
  • High cholesterol was reduced by more than 70% of patients.
  • Obstructive sleep apnea (snoring) was eliminated in 87.5% of patients, in addition to this joint disease (knee pain, back pain), infertility and asthma were improved or relieved in a high percentage.
  • Also, studies have shown that patients undergoing obesity surgery lose between 62 and 75% of their overwight.
