Slide 1:

WHEN IS IT THE RIGHT TIME FOR A BARIATRIC SURGERY FOR WEIGHT LOSS ?

Slide 2:

With a significant proportion of individuals especially in western societies and beyond being either overweight or outright obese, coupled with the attendant health implications of obesity which include predisposition to cardiovascular diseases, stroke, diabetes Mellitus etc, there is a growing conscious and concern on available therapy modalities to achieve weight loss. The standard therapies over time have included diets, lifestyle modifications, drug therapy and other alternative medical approaches.

Slide 3:

The American board for metabolic surgery (ABMS), released a set of guidelines outlining who qualifies for weight loss surgery and it includes the following : Having a body mass index of 40 or more or having a weight of over 100 pounds.

Slide 4:

Having a body mass index of 35 or more with a minimum of one or more co-morbidities related to obesity which include hypertension, type 2 diabetes Mellitus, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, heart disease etc. Difficulty or inability to attain healthy weight in spite of conscious weight loss efforts.

Slide 5:

Despite these criteria, it is important to seek the opinion of your attending physician or surgeon before reaching a decision as they are in a better position to evaluate your health condition, with a view to deciding whether you qualify or not. From the foregoing, it is clear that there is no one-size-fits-all time to have Bariatric surgery for weight loss. It is important for patients and their doctors to come to a consensus after counseling and consultation on choosing the right time to have weight loss surgery.
