LOS ANGELES, March 25, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- A March 8 article on the Express reports
Dr. Feiz & Associates notes that, as most people know, individuals struggling with severe obesity have a shorter life expectancy than those who are not obese. By reducing one's weight significantly, Dr. Feiz & Associates say that individuals with obesity can not only extend their life expectancy, but they can also keep a myriad of painful and/or dangerous health problems at bay so they can live lives that are not just longer, but happier. Reducing excess body weight also helps alleviate bone and joint pain, as less weight means less strain placed on joints. Dr. Feiz & Associates adds that this can prevent or even all-but eliminate existing arthritis issues in conjunction with increased mobility. Moreover, along with its impacts on diabetes, a weight loss procedure is also likely to help bring down high cholesterol as well as the risk for developing heart disease, the clinic says.
It's important for patients to realize that sleeve gastrectomies and other procedures are not "magic bullets" that eliminate obesity automatically, says Dr. Feiz & Associates. It's just that they make it vastly easier for patients to lose weight on their own by allowing them to eat much smaller portions than they have grown used to, without having to struggle with incessant cravings for more high-calories foods.
Moreover, while most everyone knows that exercise is helpful in fighting obesity and essential to good health generally, it can be difficult for severely obese people to exercise or even be on their feet when excess weight is causing often severe joint pain. Dr. Feiz & Associates say that the more weight that is lost, the easier it becomes for individuals to be more active in their everyday life, and become more physically fit. The clinic adds that people struggling with obesity are often caught up in a number of vicious cycles, but with the help of a weight loss procedure, patients have the opportunity to create new virtuous cycles.
