Weight-Loss Gastric Band: Risky Business

See video by clicking picture below

Being overweight is a problem and can be detrimental to one’s health physically, mentally, and emotionally. It is not easy to live life overweight, and various diets are present to help lose weight and be healthier. After many failed diets, desperation leads to desperate measures, including surgeries that are very invasive. Gastric band, designed to temporarily reduce the size of the stomach, is one that few consider as a drastic surgery to help one lose the struggling weight, but these can be very dangerous and can cause an even worse problem. Fact is,  gastric bands don’t always work and they are not a long-term solution.

Doctors say better options include gastric bypass surgery, which is permanent but offers better long-term weight control. Another procedure being offered is a sleeve gastrectomy, which also surgically reduces the size of the stomach to about 15 per cent of its original size. It is also irreversible and provides a long-term weight loss solution.
