Bariatric Surgery Successful for Patients Below 35BMI

New research supports the idea that bariatric weight loss surgery is successful in treating overweight patients who do not meet the standard of obesity, defined as having a body weight index of 35 or more.

A small study shows that patients with a BMI of 30 – 35, some of whom had type 2 diabetes, benefited from weight loss surgery. For most, their diabetes went into remission.

    People don’t truly understand the risks of being overweight. Why do most want to lose weight? Most would say to look better. Looking better certainly is a benefit of losing weight, but this shouldn’t be the sole reason to lose weight. There is a 1000 pound gorilla in the room and it’s often ignored. Being overweight for a long period of time kills thousands of people each year.
