Bariatric Surgery May Help with Your Heart Health

Bariatric surgery is one of the most effective weight loss procedures for severely obese people. These surgeries promote weight loss by altering the anatomy of digestive system, by limiting the amount of food that can be consumed and also digested.

Apart from losing great amounts of weight, people who have gone through any kind of bariatric surgery reduced their risk of cardiovascular disease by almost 50%. Still the connection between obesity and cardiovascular disease is not fully understood; however obese people often show signs of structural changes to the heart, including excess heart muscle mass in the left ventricle and enlargement of the right ventricular cavity. Both the conditions are connected to heart failure and various other problems.

Also, people who have gone through the bariatric surgery noticed a significant improvement in diabetes, high blood pressure, dyslipidemia, all these are risk factors of cardiovascular disease.
