If you recently visited the doctor and found out that you have high blood pressure it should have been a major wake up call. If it is dangerously high it could be putting you at risk of a stroke or a heart attack. You may have been prescribed medication, given recommendations to change up your diet, and told you need to become more active. One of the biggest challenges that you have been given is to lose weight. If you are completely honest with yourself, you know that your weight is the main reason that you have high blood pressure. All of those excess pounds are weighing you down and putting a strain on your heart. It has to work extra hard to pump the blood through your body. Your weight loss efforts in the past have not been successful. It’s time to take charge. Weight loss surgery at the Center for Metabolic and Obesity Surgery can help you to take the weight off and bring your blood pressure down.
Why Consider Weight Loss Surgery?
While losing weight through a healthy diet, portion control, and exercise is the ideal way to get positive results, this path doesn’t work for everyone. This especially holds true for anyone who is considered obese. Add other health issues, such as knee problems, hip problems, diabetes, or high blood pressure, and it can make it extremely difficult to take off the weight on your own. If you have tried only to fail, it can be a challenge to stay motivated long enough to get that number on the scale to drop.
Weight loss surgery offers you a way to get the weight off more quickly in order to benefit your overall health. You will be closely monitored by your doctor throughout the process. You’ll be given a strict diet that you will need to follow to avoid risks and complications. Once the weight comes off, you will need to continue to make good choices about what you eat. Physical activity is important as well.
