By far, the greatest benefit of weight loss surgery is that you will be much healthier in nearly every way.  Many of the health problems you may be experiencing will become more manageable or go away completely. This even includes diabetes.  In fact, ongoing research indicates that gastric bypass surgery appears to cure diabetes in most patients with Type II diabetes.  Weight loss will also help you significantly reduce the health risks associated with:

  • Asthma
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Degenerative joint disease
  • Depression
  • Dyslipidemia and Hypercholesterolemia
  • Gallbladder disease
  • Gout
  • Hypertension
