According to statistics, 6 billion people worldwide suffer from severe obesity and 1.2 billion people; according to the latest data, the growth rate of Chinese obesity has approached the 50-year growth rate of the United States in the past 10 years and was first listed in 2001 Rankings of the world s obesity rates. Obesity has become a global epidemic. Obesity is both an independent disease and a risk factor for type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, hypertension, stroke and a variety of cancers. Therefore, scientific and safe weight loss has received widespread attention from the medical community around the world. Stomach volume reduction, gastric bypass, bile-pancreatic shunt surgery, gastric band slimming surgery … Various surgical procedures are also increasingly being used in the field of weight loss, quickly becoming a popular means to combat weight crisis. However, there is also a great danger in weight loss surgery. Looking at all kinds of surgical weight loss surgery, mos t of them focus on the stomach. Is your stomach suitable for these operations? In this regard, our protagonist, the stomach, seems to have something to say.
Yes! I am the one with the largest volume in the digestive system in your abdominal cavity. I usually deal with the food you eat before giving it to the intestinal brother. Because the stomach needs to contain all the food you eat, my volume is the largest in the digestive system, and the size can be changed as needed.
In other words, I may really become a big stomach king because of your over-excited appetite and make you a fat man. Perhaps because of this, the common weight loss surgery nowadays likes to operate on us, regardless of suitability. Not suitable, just cut us off without asking, and finally failed to lose weight, and even made us sick. So for me and for the sake of hello, here are the official protests to humanity!
In 2002, Australian scholars reviewed the effects of various methods on the treatment of severe obesity and extremely severe obesity and concluded that surgery is the only long-term effective method. So, surgery has suddenly become a life-saving straw for fat people, but you ignore the premise of this research-severe obesity and extremely severe obesity, so if you want to perform weight loss surgery, first calculate your BMI, see See you reach the heavyweight?
Regarding the algorithm of BMI, simply divide your weight (kg) by the square of your height (meters), and the data will be your BMI value; until your BMI is less than 37, it is recommended that you do not consider surgery to lose weight; If you already have some health problems caused by obesity, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, etc., and the BMI has reached 32, then you can start to consider bariatric surgery.
Although I am only a small organ of the human body, I also have nerve distribution and I am afraid of injury. Therefore, when choosing surgery, try to choose as little trauma as possible. The larger the surgical wound, the greater the chance of infection, and the greater the impact on the overall system function. How can the functions of a complete stomach and a stomach with only 2/3 be comparable? Weight loss surgery, whether by gastric bypass with suture of the device through the device, or restricting food intake by removing 3/4 of the stomach The bile-pancreatic shunt surgery all destroys our own tissue structure and changes the normal function of the digestive system, which is destructive. Another type of adjustable gastric band weight loss surgery is a minimally invasive surgery. It reduces the original 15cm ordinary wound into a 1-2 cm keyhole, which will not destroy my structure and affect the absorption of nutrients. Does not reduce digestive function, but just adds a bel t to control our food intake.
However, due to the risks associated with all bariatric surgery, it is recommended that a doctor conduct a comprehensive assessment of your situation before deciding whether to use surgical bariatric methods, because bariatric surgery is only suitable for severely obese patients; secondly, bariatric surgery is not a This type of cosmetic surgery does not suck or remove your fat. Third, the risk of weight loss surgery is directly related to the doctor s level of surgery, so weight loss surgery can only be performed in a professional hospital by an experienced surgeon.
Lose weight, the most afraid is rebound. Especially for people with a body mass index higher than 32, any non-surgical weight loss method, such as drugs, diet, exercise or liposuction, may rebound. Even after returning to standard weight after surgical weight loss surgery, if I overeating again, I will still rebound. At this time, I will be slashed.
Experts at Changhai Hospital, Second Military Medical University, take adjustable stomach band weight loss as an example. During the operation, the doctor will place a syringe connected to the stomach band under the patient s skin, usually under the breasts. Because the stomach capacity becomes smaller, patients may have nausea and vomiting after overeating, so be sure to make full preparations before surgery. Four weeks after the operation, the doctor began to inject or withdraw fluid into the gastric band according to the condition of each patient , adjust the tightness of the gastric band, control the food intake of the patient, and slowly adjust the eating habits to achieve continuous The effect of losing weight. It should be noted that patients who have completed surgery need to go to the hospital for life -long follow-up, and other treatments for the stomach also need to contact the hospital that performed the bariatric surgery.
Critics have pointed out that if bariatric surgery is performed on adolescents, it may cause some long-term reactions in the future, such as causing anemia, osteoporosis, and intestinal diseases, which will affect development. Premature weight loss surgery will face chronic vitamin deficiency in the future. They don t consider it worth the risk to lose weight.
Some people also believe that adolescents carry double risks of performing bariatric surgery, including physical and psychological. Dr. Parkin Delinger of the University of Washington Medical Center, who has performed weight loss surgery for many adolescents, said: The problem of weight loss surgery for adolescents has two sides. It takes a long time to see the effectiveness of weight loss surgery. It takes a long time to discover the side effects of surgery.
