Diabetes and Obesity

Obesity can put you at risk of many health problems including diabetes, Knee pains, heart disease, and certain cancers.

The burden of diabetes is rapidly increasing in India and across the globe, with India contributing a major part of the global burden. In India alone, it is estimated that more than 1·3 billion people are living with Diabetes.

Diabetes is a disease that occurs when blood glucose levels in the body increases and the body become insulin resistant.

It is not known for sure why some people develop insulin resistance, but it is known that obesity and lack of physical activity make it worse. The connection between diabetes and weight loss is also seen in the fact that weight-loss can improve control or cure type 2 diabetes.

Treating Obesity Will Treat Type 2 Diabetes

Weight-loss is an important goal for persons affected by excess weight or obesity, particularly those with type 2 diabetes. Moderate and sustained weight can improve insulin action, decrease fasting glucose concentrations and reduce the need for some diabetes medications.

Weight loss is key to reverse diabetes. Weight loss can not only help you manage your diabetes, sometimes losing enough weight could help you live diabetes-free, especially if you’ve only had the disease for a few years and haven’t needed insulin.

Bariatric surgery improves weight loss in obese people who have not achieved long-term success with other weight loss attempts. Bariatric surgery limits the food intake capacity by reducing the size of the stomach. This helps you feel full much sooner than normal.

There is more than one type of bariatric surgery. Based on Body Mass Index (BMI), the physicians will determine if you are a candidate for bariatric surgery and, if so, which type of bariatric surgery will work best for you.
