The treatment of obesity is primarily diet and exercise. Personalized diet programs and exercise is the healthiest way to lose weight. Unfortunately, weight loss is very difficult, especially for obese patients, and it is not easy to maintain weight.
Studies show that only 4 out of 100 obesity patients have lost weight within 1 year and have been able to maintain their weight. Again, 95% of the patients in this group lost weight by various methods, but they recovered their weight in 2 years. Today, there is no permanent drug or alternative treatment for obesity without side effects.
Surgery in obese patients with a body mass index (BMI) of 35 years or older and between 30 and 60 years of age who have had concomitant disease (diabetes due to obesity, hypertension, sleep-apnea, heart disease, polycysticover, etc.) treatment is the only permanent solution. The fact that the patient has lived for more than 5 years with different diet and drug treatments is another condition sought for surgery.
Those who have diabetes, cardiovascular disorders, respiratory system disorders, metabolic disorders, serious joint disorders, physiological and psychological problems related to obesity will have significant improvements in weight loss and these disorders. Disorders caused by this and similar overweight have improved considerably after surgical treatment, and some diseases and their causes have been observed to end completely.
