Obesity is destructive to a person’s health. Someone who has a BMI higher than 35 kg/m2 has twice more risks to die early than a person with a normal BMI. This consequence manifests 8 to 19 years of having obesity.) Overweight is a precipitating factor for many grave, lethal diseases, comprising type 2 Diabetes, many cancers, high blood pressure, heart disease, obstructive sleep apnea, and strokes. Research demonstrates that the risk of death from these illness become normal after bariatric surgery. No longer than the first six months following the surgery, patients frequently no longer need to take medications for many of these diseases.
