The exact causes of obesity are not fully understood but it is believed there are many factors involved. The set point, which determined the healthy weight for each individual person, is too high in obese people. This may be a result from a low metabolism with low energy expenditure, excessive caloric intake or a combination. It's important to understand that severe obesity is not caused by a lack of self control. Unfortunately, in most cases even strict diets and exercise programs do not work for people that are obese and so surgery may be their only option to recover.Genetics can be a cause for obesity.
Those who are obese also run health risks such as:
- Infertility and complications during pregnancy
- Sleep Apnea
- Heart Disease
- Shortened life span, and others
At the Columbia Medical Center/Center for Obesity Surgery, they require that all of their prospective patients make an appointment to attend one of their weekly Obesity Surgery Seminars prior to making an appointment to see any of their staff. The rationale behind this is to educate their patients regarding the various surgical procedures available as well as to discuss the various dietary requirements that go along with the procedures. This way, there is no guess-work regarding what the entire process will entail.
