Residents of the region who want to get rid of excess weight and related diseases are invited to the Regional Clinical Hospital.
May 19 will be the European Day against Obesity. Its goal is to raise people’s awareness and share with them medical knowledge about obesity and related diseases.
In Russia, despite the actual epidemic and growing public spending on health, most people who are overweight are fighting it independently, with or without success, with the help of various diets, exercise or “miraculous” drugs. However, statistics show that the number of cases of obesity in Russia in 2011-2015 increased more than twofold.
Today, obesity affects 30% of women and 19% of men. In the Tver region officially registered are more than 16 thousand patients with obesity. And it’s not a cosmetic defect and a limitation of physical activity. The most dangerous companions of excess weight are type 2 diabetes, hypertension, heart and vascular disease, oncology, back problems, depression and social discomfort.
The main reason for weight gain is the uncontrolled intake of excess calories and a sedentary lifestyle. Only 5% of people who are obese have hormonal disorders as the cause of excess fat. In others, the increasing weight is due to genetic predisposition and excess calories.
What are the solutions for getting rid of excess weight? The first thing many people heard about is a hypocaloric diet combined with a dosed physical exercise. This is the most economical way to lose weight. The facts say that out of 100 only seven people can achieve real results in losing weight. And of these seven, two will continue to reduce the mass, and the five will be able to keep the result. And what about the remaining 93%? Unfortunately, their effect will either be inadequate, or the campaign to lose weight by the summer will quickly turn out to be lost and will turn into wasted time, strength and disappointment.
Today the world is actively developing a new direction in medicine – bariatric surgery, which has a 40-year history and shows good results. That allows us to confidently talk about a real opportunity to help patients once and for all to leave the problem of obesity in the past, to part with diabetes of the second type, hypertensive disease. Our experience shows that getting rid of extra 60 – 80 kg within a year is a feasible task. To date, we perform these operations in the Regional Clinical Hospital laparoscopically, and after 3 to 4 days patients leave the clinic.
Anyone who wants to lose weight and learn about the possibility of surgical treatment of obesity and type 2 diabetes, May 19, can visit the Regional Clinical Hospital. The reception will be held at the polyclinic from 09:00 on May 19, by appointment and on a first-come-first-served basis. Leading specialist – surgeon of the highest category, Ph.D., associate professor, member of the Russian Association of Bariatric Surgeons and the International Federation of Obesity Surgery Valery Silaev.
