Gastric bypass surgery involves bypassing a part of the small intestine that absorbs nutrients. For this reason, these surgeries are referred to as malabsorptive procedures.
Gastric stapling surgery is a type of weight loss surgery that limits the amount of food a person can eat.
Keeping extra weight off requires effort and commitment, just as losing weight does.
Medical treatment can help with weight loss if your own efforts are unsuccessful—or if you have a medical condition that makes it crucial to lose weight.
Whatever treatment plan a person follows, losing weight slowly will be more effective and healthy over the long term.
Given the chronic diseases and conditions associated with obesity and the fact that obesity is difficult to treat, prevention is extremely important.
