Weight reduction surgery has been reported to improve the quality of life and lessen associated diseases. Numerous studies have shown that bariatric surgery helps decrease or eliminate diabetes, hypertension, obstructive sleep apnea and high cholesterol. It also has been demonstrated to positively impact other areas, including gastroesophageal reflux disease, stress incontinence, cardiac function, infertility, and osteoarthritis. Weight loss surgery might even help you reduce the need for certain medications. Most importantly, it can once again put you back in control of your life.
