Causes and treatment of childhood obesity

Causes and treatment of childhood obesity

 Obesity is simply the increase of fat cells in the body which leads to weight gain, and obesity is excessive or pathological if it becomes threatening one or more organs of the body with disease.

Is there a difference between childhood obesity and adult obesity (age 18)?

There is no difference in the type of obesity or fat cells. But the child may have a greater susceptibility to weight loss.

What are the types of surgeries?

The most common bariatric surgeries are gastric bypass and gastric banding. The third type is sleeve gastrectomy.

– Gastric bypass surgery reduce the size of the stomach by more than 90 percent, making you feel full after eating a very small amount of food. This surgery turns the upper part of the stomach into a small sinus. The small intestine is cut off and one end is attached to the sinus of the stomach, and the other end is reattached to the small intestine.

- Gastric bypass surgery is performed endoscopically. It limits the amount of food you can eat by placing an adjustable ring around the stomach opening.

- Sleeve gastrectomy turns the stomach into a narrow tube by removing the curved side of the organ instead of the bottom, as in the case of gastric bypass.

Should surgery be used to treat childhood obesity?

Surgery should be the last to get rid of excess weight. If dieting and physical exercise are not successful and the person's life is at risk, then surgery can be resorted to.

 At what age and what weight should surgical intervention to treat childhood obesity?

Generally for this surgery, it is preferable that the patient is of middle age in order for his body to withstand this significant change. And excess weight can be measured by the so-called mass sensor, by which obesity is calculated by calculating weight divided by height. And a person must have been suffering from obesity for a considerable time.

If surgery is not possible for a child due to his young age, what is alternative treatment?

Alternative therapy is as I mentioned, diet and physical exercise. This is the ideal solution by resorting to any further treatment.

Which operation has the highest success rate?

Gastric bypass surgery, but no person can undergo this procedure as his condition must allow him to undergo it according to the conditions of the surgery.

Liposuction be with Bing or without? Is it safe? And is it possible to have a child undergo liposuction surgery.

The doctor says local anesthesia to numb the area to be removed. Yes, this operation is safe because we do Crisis analysis of the patient before surgery.

Liposuction is different from the bariatric surgery we mentioned. Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure that has no medical benefits, does not help to lose weight and cannot maintain the weight lost.

After surgery and weight loss, does the weight stay constant or May the patient return with weight gain?

The patient has to maintain the weight he has lost. If a patient who has undergone surgery does not change his lifestyle, eats too much, does not exercise, is obese and returns to bad habits that led to his weight gain, he may return to being overweight. There is also a gene factor when a person may affect his diaper on the weight he has lost.
