Many people would want to opt for this procedure to lose weight but doctors only consider people whose weight poses a threat to their life. So you should know all the things related to surgery what to do before and after surgery. There are different types of weight loss or bariatric surgery, from gastric bypass to gastric banding. While generally safe, weight loss surgery has risks and requires a lifelong commitment in eating patterns and lifestyle. To maintain a healthy weight, medical professionals emphasize that diet and exercise are key. But a new study suggests that for those who are obese, weight-loss surgery is more effective at reducing body weight, compared with non-surgical methods. Bariatric treatment in Delhi is very helpful for the patient who want to reduce their weight.
  3. 3. Obesity in older adults Obesity causes serious medical complications and impairs quality of life. Moreover, in older persons, obesity can exacerbate the age- related decline in physical function and lead to frailty. However, appropriate treatment for obesity in older persons is controversial because of the reduction in relative health risks associated with increasing body mass index and the concern that weight loss could have potential harmful effects in the older population. After Bariatric surgery
  4. 4. Weight-Loss Surgery & Long-Term Diabetes Control Weight loss surgery can benefit overweight patients with type 2 diabetes for up to nine years after the procedure, according to a new study. Long-term follow-up showed that patients continued to have improvements in their diabetes, as well as a reduction in risk factors for cardiovascular disease, the researchers reported. "Uncontrolled diabetes can lead to serious complications such as heart and kidney disease," said lead investigator A Specialist from Guidemytreatment says that- "Only about half of diabetics in the India currently have acceptable control of their blood glucose level." "Our study, however, shows that 80 percent of the diabetic patients still control their blood glucose five years after their bariatric surgery,". "Additionally, nearly one-third of gastric bypass patients had normal blood glucose levels off medication for over five years after surgery."
  5. 5. What precaution should be taken before Bariatric Surgery? There are several factors that affect the success rate of a bariatric surgery and so it is important to inform your doctor of your complete medical history along with your lifestyle habits. Smoking is a deterrent for bariatric surgery. Smoking may cause the narrowing of arteries and other major blood vessels, causing obstructions or decreased blood flow to the organs in the body. This delays the healing process after surgery, thus smokers may be declined surgery. Consumption of alcohol is prohibited at least 48 hours prior to surgery. If you drink on a regular basis, the doctor may recommend that you abstain from all alcoholic beverages for a month or so in order to ensure that your liver and other organs are functioning at their optimum levels. It is best to follow the advice of the nutritionist regarding diet. Generally patients are advised to eat small, light meals or a liquid diet before bariatric surgery for a day or more to aid digestion, and empty the colon. Pre-surgical patients are usually then kept ‘NBM’ - Nil by Mouth, where no food or liquid or even water is allowed. It is very helpful to have all the things required immediately after the operation handy. These may include clothes, medicines, supplies, educational materials and instructions regarding post-operative care and emergency contact information.
  6. 6. What precaution should be taken after Bariatric Surgery? •Soon after the surgery, you are advised to avoid any strenuous activity, and wait for four- to sixweek to resume your regular exercise program. Adhere to the habit of eating more protein, eating less and eating healthy, in order to continue your weight loss. Start with a clear liquid diet including water, clear soup, gelatin based food like jelly, and strained fruit juice. Once you start tolerating these, thicker liquids and purees can be started. Immediately after your surgery, it will generally take about 9-12 weeks for you to gradually progress to eating solid foods. It is very important that you move on to semi-solid and solid diet only after your bariatric surgeon or dietician asks you to do so. Eating too quickly or too much after weight loss surgery can cause nausea, vomiting and malabsorption or diarrhea. Make sure that you chew your food well, in order to make food easy to digest. Vitamin and mineral supplements, especially Vitamin B-12, calcium citrate, iron and folate should be taken on a regular basis as your surgically modified stomach and intestine will no longer be able to absorb these nutrients.
