Beyond obesity comes the side effects of treatment

What else comes with bariatric surgery? Five years after gastric bypass surgery, patients may have actually maintained significant weight loss but are now at risk of nutritional deficiencies, like low iron, mild anemia and low vitamin D. Bariatric surgery “bypasses” the portion of the small intestine where many nutrients, especially iron, are absorbed. In the long-term, bypass patients lost about 28% of their weight – if they kept it off at all… About 25% of patients described their quality of life as worse after the operation due to digestive problems which becoming chronic after surgery. The surgery does nothing to cure the original eating disorder, whether physical or psychological, and some patients go right back to over-eating after surgery. Bariatric surgeries come with a HUGE risk of complications from nausea, indigestion, dehydration, extremely bad flatulence and to even death. Obesity is not caused by a lack of surgery.
