Weight Loss Surgery Is Becoming More Accessible To Overweight Individuals

January 14, 2010: 11:18 PM EST
Usually considered a last-ditch effort for very obese people who needed to drop a lot of pounds, weight loss surgery is now becoming available to diabetics and people considered merely overweight. In the past, overweight people who wanted the surgery often had to bulk up to qualify. Now that’s all changing, and that’s good news for those whose only option was heading to potentially dangerous foreign clinics. Even so, experts warn, not all people interested in weight loss surgery make good candidates. They should consult a physician after they’ve tried and failed at exercising and regulating their diet.
