Food intake limitations/bariatric surgery

The World Health Organisation (WHO) defines them as an abnormal or excessive accumulation of fat that can be harmful to health.

In addition, an elevated IMC is an important risk factor in illnesses such as:

  • Cardio-vascular diseases, especially cardio-pathic cases and cerebro-vascular accidents
  • High cholesterol
  • High blood pressure
  • Disorders of the locomotive system, especially osteo-arthritis
  • Cancers of the uterine lining, breast, colon and others
  • Hormonal alterations
  • Sleep alterations (sleep apnoea)
  • Psychological disorders (depression, low self-esteem).

Bariatric surgery has demonstrated its efficacy as a therapeutic alternative for controlling morbid obesity and its comorbidities. Proper preparation of the patient prior to bariatric surgery is essential, and the following benefits have been demonstrated:

  • Improved weight loss
  • Reduced IMC
  • Reduced cardiovascular risk
  • Facilitation of the surgical process

At Vegenat Healthcare, we have designed nutritional solutions to address excessive weight gain in the most health-conscious manner. With the specific product to control weight, we achieve weight loss while preserving muscle mass and improving comorbidities associated with obesity and the patient’s quality of life.
