Excessive weight can lead to multiple life-endangering conditions, including stroke, heart attack, and type 2 diabetes. Yet when a low-calorie diet and consistent physical fitness routine fail to bring weight down to a healthy number, it may be time to consider weight loss surgery. Weight loss surgery encourages rapid weight loss by changing the way the body processes food. Finding out if you are a weight loss surgery candidate depends on several factors. First, you must be obese. You might also qualify for this procedure if you are overweight with existing health concerns that surgery can address. Second, you should discuss with your doctor your previous attempts to lose weight. If he determines that your diet and exercise efforts have not produced desired results, he may suggest weight loss surgery.
