Weight Loss Surgery May Be an Answer to Many Chronic Conditions

Excessive weight affects your life - how you look, how you feel, and the things you can or can't do. Obesity can also affect how long you live. Carrying excess weight increases your risk of developing diabetes, heart disease, cancer and other life-threatening medical conditions. But, it doesn't have to - studies show significant weight loss may improve, or even resolve, these conditions.
