Tip 2: How to quickly gain the missing weight?
Morbid obesity: a direct threat to life
Obesity has its own classification. In total, physicians distinguish four degrees of the disease. Separate "points" are overweight and over-fattening. The latter is preceded by degree IV, which is called “morbid” in medicine.
In morbid obesity, a person's weight is above normal values by about 50%. The body mass index for such people is 40 kg per m2 and higher. Previously, morbid obesity was considered a chronic disease caused by the genetic characteristics of the family.Morbid obesity causes many problems with internal organs. With such a degree, human life is in mortal danger. To cope with the disease, in this case, the help of doctors is needed.
Morbid obesity leads to numerous health problems. The most common illnesses are diabetes, infertility, diseases of the limbs and joints, various types of cancer.The spine and the heart suffer greatly from large body mass.
It is worth noting that morbid obesity in modern society is less and less genetically determined. The availability and wide distribution of fatty, high-calorie, but very tasty food forms a completely wrong type of eating behavior. As a result, changes occur in the hypothalamus, which block the saturation receptors and the ability to control appetite.
How to cope with morbid obesity
Natural ways to lose weight in the case of morbid obesity do not work. The results are short-term, because a person constantly returns to his usual diet in order to “kill” both physiological and psychological hunger. But if a person wants to be healthy, it is necessary to get rid of excess fat. Only surgical intervention will help to cope with the problem.- Operations aimed at controlling the consumption of food are called “bariatric”. The choice of treatment depends on the diet of the patient. Most often, surgeons carry out a reduction in the volume of the stomach with a bandage.
The operation allows you to reduce the volume of the stomach, so that the patient is fed up with a much smaller amount of food. After saturation, the discomfort begins, and the person refuses to add or desserts. But in order for weight loss to be intense and permanent, after surgery, patients are “prescribed” compulsory exercise.
As a rule, people who have undergone one of the bariatric operations, gradually get rid of 25-80 kg of weight. After fixing the result, many again have to go under the knife. The second time, the surgeon performs cosmetic surgery, relieving the patient of loose skin.
Unfortunately, not everyone can help overcome morbid obesity.
