BBC News reports that US research suggests that obesity operations, such as gastric bypasses or banding, doubles the risk of suffering fractures. We read that "Chronic vitamin D deficiency and inadequate calcium intake are common with obesity, and bariatric surgery poses a risk owing to malabsorption and decreased oral intake."
If you are obese and considering bariatric surgery, please first consider trying the natural way to lose excess weight, i.e. by avoiding salt and salty food and by increasing your intake of calcium, magnesium, potassium and vitamin D.
Lose weight, reduce your risk of most cancers, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, heart attack, vascular dementia, stroke, osteopenia, osteoporosis, hypercholesterolaemia, depression, liver and kidney problems, and improve your health in many other ways without drugs, hunger or expense by eating less salt! - Try it! - You will feel so much better!
