Are You a Candidate for Bariatric Surgery?
For instance, anyone weighing 20 percent or more than his or her ideal body weight is likely obese. Other ways to predict candidacy for bariatric surgery is if your BMI (body mass index) is 40 or greater then you may want to consider a gastric sleeve, a gastric bypass, or a duodenal switch. You may also qualify for bariatric surgery if your BMI is at 35 with other obesity-related health issues like diabetes, heart disease, or hypertension.
Extra weight or obesity can result in major health risks, many of them are life-threatening so it’s important to your future health if you discuss your options with a bariatric surgeon.Let’s take a closer look at the associated health risks if you’re obese but are on the fence regarding having bariatric surgery. These risks include type 2 diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, acid reflux /GERD and cancer. Some of these conditions take years to develop.
