Weight loss clinic Dr. Feiz and Associates comments on a recent article that the impact of weight loss on an individual's health and happiness is difficult to overestimate, as is the amount of evidence supporting the many benefits of bariatric surgeries.

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 11, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ --A September 2 article on CBS News

details a new study finding that patients who had undergone weight loss surgery were significantly less likely to suffer heart attacks, strokes, kidney failure, and heart disease versus a control group of obese patients who did not undergo bariatric surgery. Los Angeles-based weight loss surgery specialists Dr. Feiz and Associates says the study adds further evidence to an overwhelming consensus in the medical community that bariatric surgery offers all of the many health benefits associated with defeating obesity simply by making weight loss more achievable.

Dr. Feiz and Associates says that severely obese individuals who attempt serious weight loss regimes typically fail over time, in most cases through no real fault of their own. Instead, the clinic notes that when patients attempt to lose weight they may find that initial success even dramatic success is often followed by a regaining of all of the weight that was lost, sometimes with a small bonus. The catalyst of what is typically referred to as "yo-yo dieting," the clinic says, is a hormone known as ghrelin, often thought of as the most active hormone when it comes to hungry feelings. Obese individuals tend to produce more of it compared to thinner people. Worse, when a dieter starts to lose weight, production of the hormone increases and the body essentially does everything it can to encourage the individual to eat more. It's a mechanism humanity has developed to promote survival when starvation is a risk which, ironically, backfires when high-calorie foods are all too easily obtainable.

The clinic says that shrinking the capacity of the stomach, a procedure such as a sleeve gastrectomy also appears to have a major impact on hormone production. By removing roughly 75 to 85 percent of the stomach, the centers for the production for ghrelin may also be removed, doctors theorize. In removing these production centers, a patient's body may be less able to sound the hunger alarm, making it significantly easier for patients to change their relationship with food. Without nagging pangs of hunger, the clinic continues, bariatric patients are able to achieve significant and permanent weight losses, reversing the usually dismal statistics on weight loss for obese patients.

The clinic notes that it is common for obesity-related ailments such as type 2 diabetes to dramatically improve or even go into remission after weight loss surgery. Obesity has a long list of negative conditions associated with it, the clinic explains, and by finally losing significant amounts of weight, threats to the length and quality of a patient's life dramatically decline.
