Accurate Weight Loss Strategies and Obesity Operations
Family Medicine specialist Dr. Fatih Ucuz gives information about the treatment of obesity and Obesity Surgery
Obese patients make up a significant proportion of the patients in general internal medicine outpatient clinics. It must be acknowledged that obesity is the most important, most troublesome disease of our time. As the number of obese in the population increases, we also see significant increases in obesity-related complications. For example, I have been seeing diabetics very often in recent times, or complaints of high blood pressure that started at an early age have started to appear very often again. Fast food habits, which increase in parallel with technology, are the most important factor that triggers obesity. So how should we treat obesity when obesity is so damaging to our daily lives.
Obesity treatment has always been a big problem in itself. There is, of course, no single way to treat obesity. The age, gender, occupation, daily activity level, country of residence and eating habits of the obese person play an important role in the treatment of obesity.

Patients who have repeatedly tried to lose weight by dieting, but have not been successful and have experienced problems such as obesity-related Diabetes, hypertension, and breathing difficulties are considering bariatric surgery.
So are obesity surgeries necessary?
The World Health Organization (WHO) considers obesity to be the most important cause of obesity; it is defined as excessive fat accumulation in the body to a degree that impairs health. The main nuance here is a level of fat that impairs health. If the patient's body mass index is above 40 kg/m2, obesity surgery should be considered, or obesity surgery can be planned if the patient's body mass index is above 35 kg/m2 and accompanying chronic disease is present. In some special cases, obesity rates can be considered in patients with a body mass index below 35 kg/m2.
Which type of bariatric surgery is more appropriate?
The patient and the physician should decide together what type of obesity surgery an obese patient will have. The patient's body mass index, age, eating habits and, most importantly, chronic diseases are the factors that determine what type of operation the patient is suitable for. At Casas Clinic, we have a preliminary interview with patients and give them a detailed knowledge of the operas.
