Bariatric Surgery as a way to combat the effects of PCOD

Bariatric Surgery is a procedure that helps obese people reduce weight. There are two ways this procedure happens one being, making the stomach smaller in size which results in less consumption of liquids and food and other being making the small intestines smaller through the surgery that results in a change in the calorie consumption of the body and the nutrients in the food. Medically and physically a person who is overweight is prone to suffer from diabetes, PCOD, or heart disease as well. Even though medically Bariatric Surgery is considered to be beneficial to the people but each body type reacts to surgeries differently and the surgery does not guarantee a change in eating habits and physical activity of the person. Bariatric Surgery is a surgery that helps in shedding extra fat by reducing the stomach size to promote eating less and consuming fewer calories. Keeping the healthy habit intact post-surgery is the responsibility of the patient to eat healthy after the surgery to maintain the weight and keep healthy.

The root cause of PCOD - polycystic ovary disease is still unknown but known manifestations of PCOD are considered to be metabolic disorders, menstrual & ovulatory dysfunctions, and clinical hyperandrogenism. According to researchers what works best for patients suffering from PCOS are lifestyle changes, weight loss resulting in a balance in insulin resistance, and no type 2 diabetes. One who is suffering from PCOD is advised to reduce weight to help in reducing insulin and androgen levels in the body which helps in restoring ovulation. Doctors chart out a weight control program but when the likes of dieting and a balanced diet do not work for the patient, the doctors might just suggest Bariatric Surgery which helps in maintaining weight by working closely on the digestive powers of the stomach. A BMI of 30 to 35 is Class 1 obesity, a BMI of 35 to 40 is Class 2 obesity and a BMI of 40 and above is Class 3 obesity and Class 2 and 3 obesities are considered to be severe obesity which is often hard to treat with diet and exercise alone. Thus, bariatric surgery is considered to be helpful depending on the person. A person with a strong immunity on the prescription of a doctor might undergo bariatric surgery to fight the symptoms of PCOD. Keep a healthy check on your eating habits to keep off getting operated. Eat healthy stay healthy!

Obesity Related Health Problems in Adults

Being obese isn’t just a cosmetic issue; it greatly increases the risk for other health problems. Obesity leads to metabolic syndrome which is a group of risk factors that raises the risk for heart disease and other health problems, such as diabetes and stroke. Weight loss surgery in India has given hope to many obese people and has helped in reversing obesity-related health problems.

Coronary Heart Disease and Stroke

As the body mass index rises, the risk of coronary heart disease and stroke increases. CHD is a condition in which a waxy substance called plaque builds up inside the coronary arteries that supply oxygen-rich blood to the heart. Plaque can narrow or block the coronary arteries and reduce blood flow to the heart muscle which can cause chest pain or heart attack. If an area of plaque ruptures and cause a blood clot to form and if the clot is close to the brain, it can block the flow of blood and oxygen to the brain and cause a stroke. Obesity can also lead to heart failure, a serious condition in which the heart cannot pump enough blood to meet the body’s needs.

High Blood Pressure

Obesity increases the risk of developing high blood pressure. If blood pressure stays high over time, it can damage the body in many ways.

Type 2 Diabetes

Being obesity exerts extra stress on the body in a variety of ways, including the body’s ability to maintain proper blood glucose levels. In fact, being obese can cause the body to become resistant to insulin. The prolonged effects of the insulin resistance can eventually cause type 2 diabetes. Diabetes increases the risk of CHD, stroke, kidney disease, and blindness.


Obesity increases the risk of having abnormal levels of blood fats. These include high levels of triglycerides and LDL cholesterol and low levels of HDL cholesterol. Abnormal levels of these blood fats are a risk factor for cardiovascular diseases.


Being obese raises the risk for colon, breast, endometrial, and gallbladder cancers.


Osteoarthritis is a common joint problem of the knees, hips, and lower back. The condition occurs if the tissue that protects the joints wears away. Extra weight can exert more pressure on joints resulting in wear and tear causing excruciating pain.



Sleep Apnoea and Snoring

Obesity causes sleep apnoea and snoring as excess fat stored around the neck narrows down the airway, making it hard to breathe. Sleep apnoea can cause high blood pressure, stress and sleeplessness that can be detrimental to health.

Reproductive Problems

Obesity can cause menstrual issues and infertility in women.

All these conditions results in reduced life expectancy in obese people. In fact, the heavier the individual weighs and the younger the age, greater is the effect on the health. Weight loss surgery in India is usually recommended to obese people with one or more metabolic syndromes.  Fight obesity and win back health and longevity.


Hercules Patient Repositioner

Sizewise Worldwide and The Morel Company have formed an exclusive distribution agreement for the first bariatric system of its kind that can move a patient, weighing up to 750 pounds, up in bed with the touch of a button. Until now, traditional re-positioning methods have been manual, requiring multiple staff members, therefore increasing the potential risk for patient and caregiver injuries. For more details, contact us at

Role of Bariatric Surgery for Diabetes

Most people with type 2 diabetes also struggle with their weight. In fact, about 80-90 percent of folks who have type 2 diabetes have obesity or even severe obesity which causes resistance to insulin. While medications can help to some degree in improving blood sugar, people that are obese and particularly severely obese, the medications can only do so much. Unfortunately, losing weight with diet and exercise and drug therapy is very difficult. So where surgery has an edge over medicine is very effective in diabetic patients at causing a significant amount of weight loss and keeping that weight off. By losing the weight, the patient’s insulin resistance decreases and this results in a very rapid improvement in their blood sugar. For more details, contact us at
