  • (1888PressRelease) November 10, 2015 - New Delhi: The primary objective of this support group is to create to awareness about the health hazards associated with body fat and to eliminate the fear from the people's mind related to Bariatric surgery. At this awareness activity, the former patients who have successfully gone through with this surgery will be sharing their experiences. These experiences shared by the former patients will be beneficial and motivate other patients.

    According to Dr. Pradeep Jain, Bariatric Surgeon and Obesity specialist, Sri Balaji Action Medical Institute, "India is the third most Obese country in the world, one in every six Indian men and women is either obese or overweight. Obesity is considered the core of many diseases; increased weight carries significant health risks for including blood pressure, diabetes, and cardiovascular ailments (heart diseases), strokes and also some cancers. The 'Bariatric Support Group' we will be focusing on enhancing awareness, attitude and practices regarding healthy nutrition, physical activity and stress management.

    Everyone should adapt a healthy lifestyle i.e. regular exercise and healthy food habits. With age it is must to include light exercises like brisk walking, jogging, etc. in our daily routine. One should also control his eating habits and must have a proper diet with less fatty food. Adopting these habits will help the people in keeping their weight under control and help them to lead a better life. Once an individual is overweight or obese, reversing the energy balance to restore a healthy weight is a significant challenge, particularly for children and young people who can have little direct control over food and activity choices. One needs to make some sincere efforts to correct your routine under an expert's supervision. Healthy food habits, physical activities and managing stress are the best way to avert obesity. In chronic and high risk cases some clinical procedures and surgeries are also suggested

    Sri Balaji Action Medical Institute organized a 'Bariatric Camp' last month where we did an analysis on many participants. As per the analysis we found that the obese people are not aware of the health hazards related to body fats. So the purpose of this meet is to make the people aware about the various importance of Bariatric surgery as many people are afraid of the surgery.
