Obesity often means loneliness. Both are understood literally, but also in the context of dealing with this disease on your own, without the support of doctors and specialists. However, it is important to realize that obesity is a disease that must be treated in order to obtain permanent and satisfactory results and improve the quality of life. There are different treatments for obesity. One of them is surgical treatment.
Obesity is a chronic disease marked with the code E66 and must be treated by specialists, thanks to which the process of losing weight will be simpler, but above all healthier and more effective, and the effects are permanent.
What should an obese person do?
The first step is to consult your GP. The second step is for the doctor to make an accurate diagnosis. The doctor must calculate the body mass index and determine on the basis of tests whether the patient has comorbidities, such as diabetes, hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, sleep apnea, joint problems and others. The doctor should also indicate possible bariatric treatments and may refer you to a bariatric surgeon, if necessary. Make sure to ask your doctor for a referral to a bariatric surgeon.
Obesity treatment support
Obese people need help and stimulation in their recovery. The greatest support comes from family and relatives, but it varies greatly in practice. The social campaign “W Nowy Kształccie”, designed for obese people, comes with support. A campaign co-created by physicians, patients, scientists, nutritionists and psychologists to support patients throughout the entire obesity treatment process. on the page www.wnowymksztalcie.pl There is everything a person who is planning or in the process of treatment should know.
Surgical treatment of obesity
Many bariatric patients are eligible for bariatric surgery. Moreover, experts assure that nowadays surgery is the most effective way to treat obesity. Treatment is eligible for people with a BMI over 40 or people with a BMI over 35 and comorbidities such as type 2 diabetes. Bariatric procedures are performed under the National Health Trust or commercially. It must be remembered that surgical treatment of obesity does not free the patient from making lifestyle changes, quite the contrary. Already a few months before surgery, patients should work on changing their eating habits and gradually introduce physical activity. Bariatric surgery gives excellent and quick results, while maintaining them is possible if the patient permanently changes his diet and increases his physical activity.
Where do you work
It is necessary to focus on a bariatric center where obesity is treated interdisciplinaryly, which in practice means that in addition to the surgeon, the patient will be under the care of a dietitian, psychologist and physiotherapist. With the support of all areas, we are more certain that the treatment will always be successful and the kilograms will never come back.
