As we know obesity can affect any organ of the body from head to toe and the common diseases associated with obesity are Type 2 diabetes, Sleep Apnoea, Backache, arthritis of various joints, Polycystic Ovary syndrome, Oesophageal reflux, High Cholesterol, Hypertension, Metabolic Syndrome, Depression, Leg Oedema, Leg ulcers, Breathlessness on walking short distances and poor quality of life. Evidence suggests that Obesity not only impacts on quality of life but also has an effect on longevity. Literature suggests that one may loose upto 3-5 years if Body mass Index or (BMI) is more than 30, upto 5-7 years if BMI more than 40 also known as Morbid Obesity and upto 13 years if BMI is more than 50, also known as Super Obesity. Current Evidence suggests that Bariatric surgery will either cure or improve many of these associated diseases.
