Obesity is growing rapidly just like a pandemic. Today, every other person is obese and falling into the trap of obesity. Every year, at least 2.8 million adults die being overweight or obese.
Furthermore, type 2 diabetes affects 85 percent of the obese population.
This is why weight loss surgery in Nepal is recommended to treat obesity and all the problems that come along with it.
For those with type 2 diabetes, weight loss surgery can make a significant improvement.
The doctors at Prolife Hospitals, Nepal’s Best Weight Loss Surgery in Hospital, have seen many patients’ blood sugar levels return to normal after surgery.
Weight loss surgery has the benefit of improving Type 2 diabetes along with making you free from the trap of obesity. 400 people with type 2 diabetes were followed in one long-term study. Six years after bariatric surgery, 62 percent of patients showed no signs of diabetes. They also had lower levels of blood pressure, cholesterol, and triglycerides.
So, if you’re sick of being overweight and diabetic, this weight loss surgery in Nepal could be just what you need.
Is weight loss surgery for you?
Not everybody with Type 2 diabetes can get bariatric surgery done. The doctors of Prolife Hospitals will first analyze if you are a suitable candidate for this surgery or not. If you match the following criteria, only then you will be able to proceed further with this surgery:
- You are more than 100 pounds overweight compared to your ideal body weight.
- You have a Body Mass Index (BMI) greater than 40.
- You have a BMI of 35 or higher than that and also suffering from other serious health issues.
- If your HbA1C is 7% or higher, you have severe diabetes and may be a candidate for this surgery.
- Those with poorly controlled diabetes may be a candidate for bariatric surgery even if their BMI is less than 35.
Which bariatric surgery treats diabetes?
Although gastric bypass surgery (a type of weight loss surgery) is the most effective available treatment for obesity to reduce weight, recent studies have shown that Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass surgery is the right treatment to treat Type 2 diabetes.
It has been discovered that Gastric Bypass surgery improves type 2 diabetes significantly by controlling blood sugar levels, resulting in less or no medication.
Hence, Gastric Bypass surgery works best when you only want to get rid of diabetes.
Other types of surgeries may work best for treating obesity.
While surgery can help with diabetes and sleep apnea in the long run, it will work best if you follow the instructions for eating, taking vitamins, and exercising.
