LOS ANGELES, Aug. 10 Type 2 Diabetes is an increasingly prevalent disease affecting approximately 20 million people in the United States, and over 145 million people worldwide. While this particular type of diabetes used to mostly be associated with adults, more and more children are being diagnosed with it as well, a testament to the shift in eating and exercise habits that has occurred in America over the last decade. The strong correlation between obesity and diabetes is what makes bariatric weight loss surgery so effective in relieving, and even completely curing type 2 diabetes. Dr. Michael Feiz is a board certified bariatric surgeon who has been providing countless patients with life-changing weight loss procedures that both relieve type 2 diabetes and improve self-image.
Type 2 diabetes is characterized by the body's resistance to insulin secreted by the pancreas. With obese individuals, the consistent overload of sugar levels coupled with little to no exercise causes the body to develop this form of diabetes. Type 2 diabetes can also lead to increased weight gain, which propels the severity of the disease in a harmful cycle. If not properly treated, it can lead to erectile dysfunction, kidney failure and blindness, among other mal-effects. Fortunately, with weight loss surgery, patients can take care of diabetes, lose excess weight, and lead more healthy and productive lives. There are a number of different ways to approach the weight loss surgery, with Lap Band surgery, lap gastric bypass, and sleeve gastrectomy being the most common methods. All of these surgery methods promote rapid weight loss by decreasing the stomachs capacity for food at any given time. Based on each patient's specific age, weight, BMI (body mass index), and healthy condition, Dr. Feiz chooses the safest and most effective bariatric surgery method to achieve desired results.
After weight loss surgery, almost 77% of patients experience a complete recovery from type 2 diabetes and 86% experience a significant decrease in the severity of their diabetes. Additionally, patients reduce the hazards of several other co-mordities, such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol and heart disease. Weight loss surgery with Dr. Feiz gives patients a platform to improve their self image, livelihood and health. A member of such organizations as the American College of Surgeons, the Society of American Gastrointestinal Endoscopic Surgeons, and the American Society for Bariatric Surgeons, Dr. Feiz is a trustworthy source for safe and effective bariatric surgeries in Los Angeles.
