Why consider weight loss surgery?
Obesity often is linked to other health problems such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, joint pain, sleep apnea, heart disease and even cancer. Losing weight can lower your risk of developing those conditions or lessen the symptoms or severity.
