Health Conditions Often Alleviated With Bariatric Surgery

Bariatric Surgery Health Conditions

For individuals struggling with obesity, their weight is not just a cosmetic concern; it is a health concern as well. This is because people struggling with obesity often have related health conditions, referred to as “co-morbidities.” Thankfully, losing excess weight with the help of bariatric surgery can resolve many or all obesity-related co-morbid health conditions.


The following are common obesity-related co-morbid health conditions:

  • Heart disease
  • High blood cholesterol levels
  • Type-2 diabetes
  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • Asthma
  • Sleep apnea
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Gastroesophageal reflux disease or acid reflux
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Menstrual dysfunction
  • Depression
  • Increased risk of some types of cancer

How Bariatric Surgery Can Help Resolve Co-Morbidities

Although this information may seem bleak, the positive news is that losing the excess weight with the help of weight loss surgery can help patients resolve their co-morbidities. The National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), which is a branch of the National Institutes of Health, states that, in one study, more than 75 percent of study participants completely resolved their type-2 diabetes after successfully losing weight with the help of bariatric surgery. In a different study, over 70 percent of participants showed a substantial improvement in cholesterol levels two years after successful weight loss with bariatric surgery.
