According to the U.S Department of Health and Human Services, over 35% of American adults suffer from obesity. While obesity can definitely affect how you feel about your appearance and even your ability to do daily tasks, it can also have serious effects on your body.
Being obese can lead to heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, diabetes, cancer, gallbladder disease, gallstones, osteoartritus, gout, breathing problems, asthma, and a shortened life span. When diet and exercise aren’t enough, bariatric surgery is the most promising weight loss tool.
