Obesity In The Time Of Corona Virus

Obesity itself is turning into a global menace, engulfing more and more people every day. But the other, more threatening aspect for obese people is that if they contract the Corona Virus, their treatment will be more challenging for the medics. According to the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the high rate of obesity is an indication that most of the population which will contract the virus, will be obese. And since high blood pressure and heart diseases are often linked with obesity, chances are, such patients will have to be transferred to the ICU. And patient care management for obese people is highly challenging as there are weight limits on imaging machines, mobilizing them for daily check-ups, all are hard.

What Should You Do?

At Houston Weight Loss, our experts believe that patients who are struggling with weight issues should immediately start considering lifestyle changes to keep the weight under control. Healthy diets and regular exercise can help everyone to fight obesity. However, if you have tried everything and you are still not at your desired number on the scale, you have to address it with another perspective.

Control Hunger With Gastric Balloon And LAP-Band!

In most cases, people who are struggling with chronic obesity find it hard to control their hunger. A gastric balloon or lap band surgery is advised. By reducing the size of their stomach, these could help patients from overeating. These surgeries are reversible and are minimally invasive.

Eliminate Excessive Fat With Liposuction

On the other hand, if an individual is dealing with a deeper problem such as fat accumulation at certain areas of the body, liposuction can eliminate body fat by sucking it out of the body. It is however, important to keep in mind that liposuction itself is not a process for weight loss. A person undergone a liposuction can still get back to their original weight if they don’t make changes in their habits.
