Study Shows that Obesity Directly Shortens Life Expectancy & Increases Risks of Death

Safe & Successful Bariatric Surgery from New York Bariatric Group Will Extend & Improve Lives For Obese Patients

New Hyde Park, NY – A new study conducted by researchers at the City University of New York reveals data which may surprise the general population, but certainly does not shock the highly experienced team of bariatric surgeons at the New York Bariatric Group. The new study shows that obesity directly leads to shorter life expectancy and increased risks of death.

The study, conducted by Luisa Borrell and Lalitha Samuel, shows that obese adults died 3.7 years earlier from all causes, and 1.7 years earlier as a result of heart disease compared to normal weight adults.

Further, things are worse for middle-aged obese adults, between ages of 45 to 64. Here, obese individuals died a startling 7.1 years earlier from all causes, and 12.8 years earlier from heart disease compared to normal weight middle-aged adults. Obesity was shown to increase the risk of death from all causes, including heart disease, by at least 20 percent.

These important findings are contrary to the opinions of some who believe that obesity merely leads to chronic illness, and the study is an essential piece of evidence showing the great need and benefits of bariatric surgery.

While long-term dieting and exercise may produce significant weight loss, the majority of adults do not see sustained results in this fashion. The alternative, which is far more effective and successful, is bariatric surgery.

Weight loss surgery can lead to quick and dramatic weight loss, as well as maintained results for a lifetime. As a direct result of bariatric surgery, patients can help to reverse type-2 diabetes, decrease high blood pressure and cholesterol levels, and live a healthier, longer and more enjoyable life.

The New York Bariatric Group was formed by four of the country’s most experienced and renowned bariatric surgeons. They perform all of the most advanced and safest types of bariatric surgery, including laparoscopic banding, sleeve gastrectomy, gastric bypass, and more. NYBG also provides patients with a comprehensive support program.
