Plano, TX, July 11, 2016 – Obesity has long been connected to a large number of serious health conditions. From some types of cancer to type 2 diabetes, excess weight can dramatically increase a person’s risks for the development of potentially fatal diseases. Shedding pounds can make a difference, but research is showing doing so through the use of bariatric surgery may provide greater long-term results for those considered severely obese.

“There are a number of factors that can make weight loss surgery the more effective choice for those who are obese to reduce their health risks and even help them treat potentially life-limiting conditions,” explains Dr. Nick Nicholson, founder and lead surgeon at the North Texas-based Nicholson Clinic, one of the top weight loss surgery centers in the country. “In addition to promoting the consumption of less food, weight loss surgery can also introduce beneficial changes in body chemistry that promote disease prevention and symptom control.”

There are a number of studies that show bariatric surgery is more effective overall than other forms of weight loss intervention. Lifestyle modifications, for example, can have an impact on diabetes control. Studies have shown, however, that weight loss surgery can actually help type 2 diabetics better manage and sometimes even reverse their condition.

“In addition to better diabetes control, bariatric surgery has proven beneficial in helping people combat sleep apnea, improve pain associated with such conditions as osteoarthritis and better control cholesterol and other risk factors for heart disease,” says Dr. Nicholson. “Weight loss surgery can be a life-saver, quite literally, for those who are considered severely obese.”

Bariatric surgery is typically recommended for people with a body mass index of 40 or higher. Those with obesity-related health concerns, such as high blood pressure, may find they are eligible for surgery with a BMI of 35 or higher.
