Effects of Weight Loss Surgery on Metabolism

The energy needed by our body can be acquired through metabolism; it is the chemical reaction in the body, which converts the food in to energy. Specific proteins and acids in the body control the metabolism, and each and every chemical reaction is accommodated with other functions of the body. The body can regulate thousands of chemical reaction of metabolism that will keep our cells working and healthy.

Weight loss surgery can change the lifestyle of the human beings. It affects the eating habits, activities, and behavior of body metabolism. Changes can occur in the gastro intestinal system. It affects the digestive system and chemical reactions of the body, and also decreases the metabolic syndrome. Weight loss surgery gives an effective and fast weight loss. It also helps to fight against the metabolic syndrome. Metabolic syndrome is a group of medical conditions, which leads to an increased risk of heart diseases, diabetes, and other health problems. From most of the studies it is analyzed that weight loss surgery can help in preventing high blood pressure, heart strokes , which are caused by metabolic syndrome  and enhances the normal functioning of the body.

Weight loss surgery causes injury to the stomach and abdominal wall, and that changes the walking and sittings of the biomechanics. Thus it reduces the intake of food, from that automatically the system of metabolism gets affected.

Due to these surgeries the body shrinks in waistline and at the same time the working and living space of the internal organs is reduced. The cavity size of the abdomen is decreased, and then the internal organs get compressed. This will affect the digestion system by reducing the chemical reactions.

After one year of the surgery, patients who are suffering from metabolic syndrome lost 30% of their weight, it is an average calculation. The patients’ blood pressure, blood sugar, and bad cholesterol were reduced. Through the adjustable gastric banding surgery most of the patients reversed their metabolism. The metabolic syndrome reversal can mostly happen with gastric bypass surgery. Metabolism mostly depends on the percentage of weight loss.
