If you have been struggling to lose weight, weight loss surgery may be a good choice for you. Studies show that very few people are able to lose weight and keep it off. Bariatric surgery is the safest and most effective way to lose weight and improve health conditions associated with obesity. Although individual surgical recommendations can only be made after speaking with a weight loss surgeon in a consultation, the general guidelines for being a candidate for a bariatric procedure fall under one of these qualifications:
- BMI greater than 40, or more than 100 pounds overweight.
- BMI greater than 35 and at least one or more obesity related co-morbidities such as type II diabetes (T2DM), hypertension, sleep apnea and other respiratory disorders, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, osteoarthritis, lipid abnormalities, gastrointestinal disorders, or heart disease.
- Inability to achieve a healthy weight loss sustained for a period of time with prior weight loss efforts.
