Bariatric - Bariatrics is the branch of medicine that deals with the causes, prevention, and treatment of obesity. Obesity is a complex disorder involving an excessive amount of body
fat. Obesity isn't just a cosmetic concern. It increases your risk of
diseases and health problems, such as heart disease, diabetes and high
blood pressure. Being extremely obese means you are especially likely to have health problems related to your weight. The good news is that even modest weight loss can improve or prevent
the health problems associated with obesity. Dietary changes, increased
physical activity and behavior changes can help you lose weight.
Prescription medications and weight-loss surgery are additional options
for treating obesity. Along the way, however, challenges can become less risky or difficult obstacles with products designed to aid daily living. Resources:SupportMayo Clinic
