Advantages of the Gastric Bypass

Advantages of the Gastric Bypass
  • It is particularly effective for patients with a larger BMI as the procedure has more predictable weight loss outcomes, significantly(60 to 80 percent excess weight loss).
  • Hormonal changes resulting from surgery mean most patients have an almost immediate reduction in their need for diabetic medication, and some can completely stop diabetic medication altogether.
  • In addition to weight loss, gastric Bypass tends to have the strongest effect on high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and other obesity-related health issues.
  • It is also effective for those people who tend towards high sugar or high-fat foods. Dumping syndrome is directly linked to a high sugar, high fat intake. Symptoms of dumping are unpleasant and therefore discourage the intake of high calorie, sweet foods.

Advantages of laparoscopy over open surgery include:
  • Have less pain
  • This surgery takes about 2 to 4 hours.
  • Shorter hospital stays and quicker recovery.
  • Smaller scars and a lower risk of getting a hernia or infection.

Relation between sleeping and weight loss?

Hello everybody,

I came across a health fact on the internet that claims that lack of sleep cause weight gain. It increases the weight within a week by 0.9 KG (2 pounds). How far is it true?
