Gastric balloon – A safer choice
Like all other medical interventions, gastric balloon procedure has its own risks as well. However, they are very rare, hence it’s still considered safer than the more invasive and expensive bariatric surgery (gastric sleeve, and gastric bypass). It’s widely believed that the risks associated with overweight and obesity are higher than the very rare risks associated with this procedure. The gastric surgery is associated with a significantly higher rate of serious adverse events.
Overweight and obesity: the 5th deadliest conditions all over the world
Overweight and obesity are considered the 5th most dangerous factors that contribute to death in the world. People with excess weight, especially belly fat, are two times at risk of developing heart diseases compared to people with no belly fat, according to a new study. It’s considered a medical condition that is linked to cardiovascular, diabetes, arthritis, sleep apnea diseases and certain tumors. A modest weight loss of at least 5% of excess body weight may improve people’s health prospect in relation to diabetes and other obesity-related diseases. Overweight or obese people who suffer from hypertension, diabetes, sleep apnea, migraine, arthritis, and some other diseases, can benefit from losing weight using gastric balloons.
