5 Benefits of Bariatric Surgery: A solution for obesity

Obesity is a public health problem, and bariatric surgery is one of the best alternatives to improve the health and quality of life of affected people.
 

1. Improves the insulin response

Blood glycemia levels are regulated due to a better response of peripheral tissues to insulin actions; this is very important because obesity can cause diabetes and other metabolic diseases, gastric bypass is an excellent option for diabetic patients (1)
 

2. Improves respiratory capacity

 People with obesity morbidity suffer from apnea and other respiratory problems due to the pressure of adipose tissue on the thoracic cage, after bariatric surgery, this is reduced and even disappears. 
 

3. Reduce cholesterol levels

High levels of cholesterol and triglycerides are typical in obese people and represent a risk factor for the development of cardiovascular diseases, after bariatric surgery, these levels are reduced.
 

4. Reduce blood pressure

High blood pressure is common in obese people because there is an overload in the functions of the heart, weakening it over time, with bariatric surgery can reduce and even eliminate the use of medications to control blood pressure in people obese. (2)
 

5. Improves joint discomfort

The joints suffer a weakening in the joint surface and inflammation due to overweight; this favors a sedentary lifestyle and prolongs obesity, with weight loss after bariatric surgery mobility improves, and pain is reduced.
 
Any of the bariatric surgeries provide a long-term solution for the treatment of morbid obesity, and its consequences on health, together with a balanced diet and regular physical activity, improve the quality of life of obese people.
