According to the World Health Organization, there are more than 1.9 billion adults who are overweight and over 650 million are obese. This number has tripled since 1975. Obesity puts people at risk of various diseases like Diabetes, Stroke, Heart Attack, Hypertension, Sleep Apnea, Asthma and Osteoarthritis.
Fortunately, Obesity is highly preventable. However, overcoming it takes a lot of work. Lifestyle changes, special diets and plenty of exercises usually do the trick.
But there are certain cases when all of these methods don’t work. This is when Bariatric Surgeries come in.
