Weight reduction was very important for those with the abdominal obesity & metabolic syndrome. The initial target is a slow reduction of 7-10% in the baseline weight, with normal body mass index as an ultimate goal.
Bariatric Surgery is an Effective Treatment for the Metabolic Syndrome
Bariatric surgery was an effective, durable & safest treatment for treating the obesity. Modifications in diet, lifestyle interventions, exercise regimens & medical therapy were rarely curative & weight regain was common. Patients will rarely achieve the weight loss goals & generally regain weight. Diet & exercise plans were considered to be successful with weight loss of 510%. Pharmacologic treatment of the obesity was considered as successful if there was a weight loss of 15%. Studies showed that modest reduction in weight of 5% or more may improve the indices of the metabolic disease. Bariatric surgery has been shown in the multiple studies to produce the substantial durable weight loss & improve or cure many of the symptoms of the metabolic syndrome which includes sleep apnea, type II diabetes, hypertension & hyperlipidemia.
