Along with physiological impact, morbid obesity can cause significant health concerns that effect the body's mechanical and metabolic functions.
Why Dieting and Exercise May not be Enough
More than 97 million adults in the US are overweight or obese — that's one third of adults in our country! Along with physiological impact, morbid obesity can cause significant health concerns that effect the body's mechanical and metabolic functions. Complications from obesity can increase your risk for other life-threatening conditions:
- High blood pressure
- Heart disease
- Type 2 diabetes
If you are affected by obesity, you know first-hand that managing your weight is more than just diet and exercise. Surgical weight loss can be incorporated into a successful obesity treatment plan to improve your overall health if traditional options are not keeping weight off.
TriStar Centennial's Center for Weight Management is an accredited bariatric surgery center and one of the first 12 programs in the country to receive a Center of Excellence designation.
