What is Fat?


Fat is a nutrient. It is crucial for normal body function and without it we could not live. Not only does fat supply us with energy, it also makes it possible for other nutrients to do their jobs.

When body accumulates excess fat to the extent that it may have a negative effect on health, leading to reduced life expectancy and/or increased health problems. This condition is called obesity. usually obesity is due to positive energy balance. That is, the intake of calories is more than the expenditure of calories.

Not all body fat is bad, but excess body fat can be a problem. Too much fat in the body is connected to many health conditions such as heart disease and hardening of the arteries.

In Type 1 diabetes

The insulin producing cells in the pancreas are destroyed.

In Type 2 diabetes

Insulin is still produced but the body becomes resistant to it . “Diabetologists can help you manage your diabetes, by advising Diet plan,Exercise,and prescribing Oral Medicines and Insulins/Analogs.

Vitamin D deficiency linked to Type 1 diabetes risk

Low levels of Vitamin D in the blood can contribute to a person’s risk of developing Type 1 diabetes, new research has found. A study led by researchers from the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine has found a correlation between vitamin D3 serum levels and subsequent incidence of Type 1 diabetes. The six-year study of blood levels of nearly 2,000 individuals suggests a preventive role for vitamin D3 in this disease.

Fat Mass is distributed differently in Men & Women.


The android or male pattern is categorized by fat distributed predominantly in the upper body above the waist, where as gynecoid , or female pattern shows fat predominantly in the lower body that is lower abdomen , buttocks, hips and thighs.

Weight gain in the area of and above the waist(apple type) is more dangerous than weight gained around the hips and flak areas( Pear type)

Percentage of body fat, subcutaneous truncal fat or abdominal fat and visceral fat in the abdominal cavity are associated with health risks.

Fat Facts


Urban India’s greatest comforts are the cause of a super-size health problem: obesity. 70% people in metros fat or obese

Easy access to high-calorie packaged foods, sedentary lifestyles and a predilection for gizmos have resulted in almost 70% Indians in mega-cities being overweight or obese, says a new multi-city survey. The profiling of 46,000 urban Indians-all of whom have access to the internet-showed that 49% were obese or had a body mass index (BMI) of 25. Another 24% had a BMI between 23 and 24.9, which puts them in the overweight category.

The survey shows that north Indian cities of Delhi and Chandigarh are the obesity capitals with 53% of those surveyed being obese. A breakup shows that every second woman is obese and the worst-affected age group the 24-39 bracket. “When one takes into consideration underdeveloped states or the smaller cities and towns, the overweight figure seems lower adding that the new survey obviously looked at a section that is urban, affluent, wired and low on physical exercise. Incidentally, earlier this year, India had lowered the BMI cutoff for obesity. “Now, Indians with a BMI of over 23 are considered obese, adding that the new scale would put many more people in the overweight category. “The new survey suggests that we are now on a par with other developed nations if we compare the percentage of population that is obese, at least as far as urban and affluent sections of our society are concerned,”

Risks related to Over weight


overweight

A healthy well balanced diet should include an adequate amount of fat and cholesterol, even if you are trying to lose weight. Today, however, people are consuming much more fat and cholesterol than the body needs. Restaurants that do serve healthier fares still serve large portions. Fast food establishments now include the nutritional info on every food item, yet they still offer super-sized meal options. Excess levels of fat and cholesterol can be life-threatening over time.

Obesity

The body needs some fat to burn energy and provide a back-up energy source when the body is without food for a long period of time. Fat aids in the absorption of nutrients and provides insulation from the heat and cold. Too much body fat can lead to being overweight or obese. According to the National Heart, Blood and Lung Institute, obesity can cause sleep apnea, type 2 diabetes and gallstones. It can also cause irregular menstrual periods and female infertility. Being overweight puts a strain on the joints and wears away the cartilage between the joints, causing joint pain. Being overweight also increases your risk of certain cancers like gallbladder, breast and colon cancer.

Diabetes

According to the Obesity Society, excess body weight contributes greatly to the onset of diabetes, and it is reported that 90 percent of diabetics are also obese. Overweight people are at a higher risk for type 2 diabetes than persons of normal weight. Excess fat impairs the body’s ability to produce enough insulin to regulate blood sugar. Uncontrolled diabetes can lead to kidney disease, stroke and blindness.

Stroke

Excess fat and cholesterol is a dangerous combination that can cause a stroke. A stroke occurs when the blood flow to a part of the brain is severely reduced or interrupted. The affected brain region is then deprived of food and oxygen, and brain cells begin to die. An artery narrowed by a buildup of cholesterol or a blood clot is often the culprit. Being overweight or obese forces the heart to work harder, and this can result in high blood pressure. According to the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, high blood pressure is the number one risk factor for a stroke.

Heart Disease

Cholesterol is essential for proper bodily function. The body produces cholesterol and also gets it from certain foods. Too much cholesterol in the diet can lead to atherosclerosis. According to the National Heart Blood and Lung Institute, atherosclerosis develops when a significant amount of cholesterol accumulates in the arterial walls and forms a plaque that narrows the arteries. Blood flow through the arteries is reduced, which can result in a heart attack or angina, also called chest pain. High cholesterol also contributes to coronary disease. Like high blood pressure, high cholesterol is a so-called silent killer that can exist for a years before the condition is discovered, usually after a heart attack.

Osteoarthritis

Increase in weight is directly proportional to the increase pain in weight bearing joint leading to knee osteoarthritis, especially in women. Weight reduction helps in reducing the risk of developing this condition. Hyper uricemia to which obese people are more prone to may lead to development of gout.

CANCER

Obese men become more prone to develop colon, rectum and prostate cancer, while the risk of cancers of breast, ovary, endometrium and cervix increases in women. Mortality from breast cancer also increases in direct proportion to the degree of obesity.

PCOS (Poly cystic ovary syndrome) & Infertility

PCOS is assuming epidemic proportions these days with the increasing prevalence of obesity in young females. Adolescent girls and young women with PCOS simultaneously encounter the problem of rapid weight gain leading to obesity. Insulin is the most important causative factor for obesity as well as PCOS leading to menstrual problems and infertility.

What to do?


Liposuction

Liposuction, also called lipoplasty, liposculpture suction lipectomy, or lipo, is a type of cosmetic surgery which breaks up and “sucks” fat from various possible parts of the body, most commonly the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, neck, chin, upper and backs of the arms, calves, and back. The fat is removed through a hollow instrument – a cannula – which is inserted under the skin. A powerful, high-pressure vacuum is applied to the cannula.

Bariatric Surgery

Exercise and diet alone often fails to effectively treat people with extreme and excessive obesity. Bariatric surgery is an operation that is performed in order to help such individuals lose weight. Evidence suggests that bariatric surgery may lower death rates for patients with severe obesity, especially when coupled with healthy eating and lifestyle changes after surgery.

1). Consult a Dietician:

Dietitians translate the science of nutrition into everyday information about food for health and well being. They can treat the individual or work with population groups; working by both prevention and treatment.

Dietitians can work in a range of areas including in acute and community health sectors, as health educators, in private practice (freelance), in food service and industry, in sport, research, in media and in public health.

Dietitians provide food and nutrition information, and support people to improve their health. They provide advice on nutrition-related matters and can modify diets to help manage conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, overweight and obesity, cancer, food allergies and intolerances.

2). What dietician does?

  • Nutritional assessment
    An evaluation of your current food patterns and diet considering your health concerns.
  • Body compositional analysis
    An observation of your blood glucose response to meals and snacks for patients with diabetes.
  • Dietary advice and counseling
    To educate and inform you regarding your condition and its relationship with your diet.
  • Resources, eating plans and recipes
    A meal plan based on your individual nutritional needs and healthy ways to prepare food.

When it comes to nutrition’s “ONE SIZE FITS ALL” does not apply, Of course, there are basic universal guidelines to follow, but for a nutrition plan to work, it must be tailored to your specific needs. 70 % diet and 30 % exercise will help you to maintain your health.

3). Physical Activity

An increase in physical activity is an absolutely essential part of reducing fat from the body. It contributes to an increase in energy expenditure and is helpful in reducing as well as maintaining a desirable weight. It has a favorable effect on body fat distribution also and leads to modest reduction I abdominal fat. It promotes a sense of well being, increases bone density, cardio vascular fitness and is of vital importance in prevention of non communicable chronic diseases. Brisk walk and routine activities like household work like gardening are helpful in achieving the goal of weight reduction. These simultaneously lower the blood pressure and serum Triglycerides, and elevate good cholesterol.

What is Liposuction:

Liposuction, also called lipoplasty, liposculpture suction lipectomy, or lipo, is a type of cosmetic surgery which breaks up and “sucks” fat from various possible parts of the body, most commonly the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, neck, chin, upper and backs of the arms, calves, and back. The fat is removed through a hollow instrument – a cannula – which is inserted under the skin. A powerful, high-pressure vacuum is applied to the cannula.

Patients who undergo liposuction generally have a stable body weight, but would like to remove undesirable deposits of body fat in specific parts of the body. It is not an overall weight-loss method – it is not a treatment for obesity. Liposuction does not remove cellulite, dimples or stretch marks. The aim is esthetic – the patient wishes to change and enhance the contour of his/her body.

Some medical conditions may benefit from liposuction, including:

  • Lipomas – benign fatty tumors
  • Gynecomastia – where fatty breast tissue has developed in men.
  • Lipodystrophy syndrome – a lipid (fat) metabolism disturbance in which there is too much fat in some parts of the body and partial or total absence of fat in other parts. Sometimes a side effect of some HIV medications.

Benefits of Liposuction

More and more people are turning to liposuction to help achieve their aesthetic goals. Patients benefit both mentally and physically from liposuction. In fact, liposuction has become one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures in the world because it is a safe and effective way to remove fat and cellulite in your body. To add to it’s effectiveness, liposuction can be paired with a myriad of complementary procedures such as breast augmentation, tummy tuck, and even facial plastic surgery.

The benefits of liposuction include:

  1. Safe removal of fat
  2. Reduction of cellulite or improvement in the appearance of cellulite
  3. Improved health, usually associated with fat loss
  4. Changes the way you look, and the way others perceive you
  5. Boost in self-esteem
  6. Sculpting areas of body that even exercise and diet don’t seem to impact
Liposuction-1
Liposuction-2

Advances in technology and techniques have made liposuction safer then ever, but it does have risks as does any medical procedure. Only you and your plastic surgeon can determine if the benefits out weigh the risks for your personal situation. You can learn more about risks in our section on liposuction risks. However, be sure to find a plastic surgeon who can help you evaluate the benefits and risks in your specific case.

What is Bariatric surgery:

Exercise and diet alone often fails to effectively treat people with extreme and excessive obesity. Bariatric surgery is an operation that is performed in order to help such individuals lose weight. Evidence suggests that bariatric surgery may lower death rates for patients with severe obesity, especially when coupled with healthy eating and lifestyle changes after surgery.

Principles of bariatric surgery

The basic principle of bariatric surgery is to restrict food intake and decrease the absorption of food in the stomach and intestines.

The digestion process begins in the mouth where food is chewed and mixed with saliva and other enzyme-containing secretions. The food then reaches the stomach where it is mixed with digestive juices and broken down so that nutrients and calories can be absorbed. Digestion then becomes faster as food moves into the duodenum (first part of the small intestine) where it is mixed with bile and pancreatic juice.

Bariatric surgery is designed to alter or interrupt this digestion process so that food is not broken down and absorbed in the usual way. A reduction in the amount of nutrients and calories absorbed enables patients to lose weight and decrease their risk for obesity-related health risks or disorders.

Body mass index (BMI)

Body mass index (BMI), a measure of height in relation to weight, is used to define levels of obesity and help determine whether bariatric intervention is required. Clinically severe obesity describes a BMI of over 40 kg/m2 or a BMI of over 35 kg/m2 in combination with severe health problems.

Health problems associated with obesity include type 2 diabetes, arthritis, heart disease, and severe obstructive sleep apnea. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approves the use of adjustable gastric banding for patients with a BMI of 30 kg/m2 or more who also have at least one of these conditions.

Types of Bariatric Surgery

There are various types of bariatric surgeries that can be performed. Surgery may be performed using an “open” approach, which involves cutting open the abdomen or by means of laparoscopy, during which surgical instruments are guided into the abdomen through small half-inch incisions. Today, most bariatric surgery is laparoscopic because compared with open surgery, it requires less extensive cuts, causes relatively minimal tissue damage, leads to fewer post-operative complications and allows for earlier hospital discharge.

There are four types of operations that are offered:

  • Adjustable gastric banding (AGB)
  • Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB)
  • Biliopancreatic diversion with a duodenal switch (BPD-DS)
  • Vertical sleeve gastrectomy (VSG)

How bariatric surgery can help you:


Bariatric

When combined with a comprehensive treatment plan, bariatric surgery may often act as an effective tool to provide you with long term weight-loss and help you increase your quality of health. Bariatric surgery has been shown to help improve or resolve many obesity-related conditions, such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, and more. Frequently, individuals who improve their weight find themselves taking less and less medications to treat their obesity-related conditions.

Significant weight loss through bariatric surgery may also pave the way for many other exciting opportunities for you, your family, and most importantly – your health.

How bariatric surgery can help you:


Bariatric

When combined with a comprehensive treatment plan, bariatric surgery may often act as an effective tool to provide you with long term weight-loss and help you increase your quality of health. Bariatric surgery has been shown to help improve or resolve many obesity-related conditions, such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, and more. Frequently, individuals who improve their weight find themselves taking less and less medications to treat their obesity-related conditions.

Significant weight loss through bariatric surgery may also pave the way for many other exciting opportunities for you, your family, and most importantly – your health.
