Why Your Weight Matters

bariatric surgery HoustonWhen many people think of obesity, the first thing they often think of is the cosmetic concern associated with excess weight. In reality, obesity is one of the most serious pre-existing conditions for a laundry list of health problems. For this reason, bariatric surgery not only improves self-esteem, but can actually be life-changing.

Obesity is one of the top risk factors for heart disease, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, and osteoarthritis. It is associated with higher levels of bad cholesterol and lower levels of healthy cholesterol, and can increase your chances of developing gallbladder disease. Many people who are obese also struggle with sleep apnea. Certain types of cancer are also more common in people with weight problems.

At Bariatric Care Centers, we help you fight back against obesity with bariatric surgery procedures, including gastric bypass, and sleeve gastrectomy. Could weight loss surgery in Houston change your life? Call (713) 339-1353 and schedule a consultation to learn more.
