New York, NY, Oct. 12, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Weight loss surgery can be a life-saving alternative for many people, especially in the short-term. For those who are constantly struggling with their weight, the average fad diet just never seems to work. Due to this constant source of frustration, many find themselves weighing the pros and cons of weight loss surgery and nearly 200,000 Americans elect to undergo the process each year to significantly improve their quality of life. After all, fast weight loss provides necessary relief from the chronic illness, pain, restricted motion and mobility and lack of circulation that comes with obesity.

However, there are a few risks that may or may not accompany surgical weight loss such as:

  • Bowel obstruction
  • Dumping syndrome, causing diarrhea, nausea or vomiting
  • Gallstones
  • Hernias
  • Low blood sugar
  • Malnutrition
  • Stomach perforation (breaking open of the stomach)
  • Ulcers

In addition to the risks, individuals who are considering surgical weight loss should keep in mind that their weight struggles will most likely resume if they have not addressed the underlying factors that have contributed to the problem in the first place. Dr. Nishant Rao of Diet Doc explains that a quick fix may not solve weight issues entirely. “Many people gain weight as a secondary response to stress or emotional eating which isn’t triggered by the stomach itself but by brain chemistry.”

Diet Doc – a medical weight loss center that serves patients throughout the U.S., sees many patients who have had successful bariatric surgeries and have even maintained for some time, only to gain the weight back due to the ongoing challenges of emotional eating and mood regulation through food. For this, Diet Doc uses CC2, which Dr. Rao calls, “a proprietary compounded prescription medication along with other prescriptions to break the cycle of emotional eating.” He continues, “By interrupting the dopamine reward cycle, Diet Doc is able to help people change long term eating habits and behaviors which results in much longer sustained weight management.”
