This World Health Day on 7 April, let us pledge to protect ourselves from health hazards and financial hardships:
2019 theme of World Health Day is to prevent people from health hazards and financial hardships.
80% of Indians pay out of pocket for healthcare which can lead to catastrophic health expenditures and families losing a life-time savings.
Non communicable diseases such as cancer, diabetes type 2, heart disease, blood pressure, high cholesterol, debilitating arthritis, respiratory diseases such as asthma and sleep apnea etc. cause maximum financial impact to Indians and Obesity is the root cause of all these and 40- 50 other deadly non communicable diseases.
If we control obesity, we can avoid dealing with and spending on all these chronic diseases that are often a result of obesity.
Obesity patients even before developing these diseases spend huge amounts of money on trying to lose weight through diets, exercise regimes etc but most are unsuccessful in losing or sustaining lost weight for long. This is mainly due to obesity being a multi- factorial disease involving genes and hormones that make us gain the lost weight quickly.
For such patients, Bariatric Surgery has become a very viable and accessible line of treatment over the last decade and a half.
Bariatric surgery, is by far the most effective and scientifically proven way to lose all the extra weight and maintain the weight loss long term.
