Las Vegas, Nevada, USA – August 21, 2014 /MarketersMedia/ –

“I’m concerned,” Dr. Tom Umbach states as he considers a CDC report from earlier this year and latest news reports. “Looking at the data, many people would say, ‘Oh, hey! Isn’t it great that obesity rates haven’t risen?’ But they forget—it also means rates aren’t falling. The long-term effects of this trend are staggering.”

Dr. Elbert Huang, an associate professor of medicine at the University of Chicago who studies health care policy issues, reports that his research shows, “[…] even if obesity rates continue to remain stable, there will be dramatic increases down the road in diabetes and in costs linked with that disease. That’s because type 2 diabetes, among many diseases linked with obesity, becomes more prevalent as people age.”

“This is when bariatric surgery truly helps people,” Dr. Tom Umbach, founder of Blossom Bariatrics and award-winning bariatric surgeon, explains. “I love when they come back to see me and they’ve lost 60, 80, maybe even 100 pounds. I love that they’re no longer taking their diabetic medications, and they’ve gotten rid of their sleep apnea machine, and they’ve gotten rid of their high blood pressure medications! These results are common. Why, it’s even in today’s news!”

Blossom Bariatrics helps its patients achieve healthy lifestyles as a part of an optimized, individual bariatric surgery plan. Katie, one of Dr. Tom’s patients, knew it was time to take control of her life, and since her surgery, “My husband is down 110 pounds, and I, myself, am down 85.” To learn more about Dr. Umbach and his work with with bariatric weight loss surgery, watch this video.
