Bariatric surgery reduces pregnancy risks in obese women


"as one of the main reasons for choosing bariatric surgery is the bad experiences at the hands of ignorant HCPs!" Care to explain the above comment Toni? Because the NHS is generally not geared up to either empowering people in their own health or because it's really poor at health promotion? I was sure it was because these patients have morbidly low levels self esteem / self efficacy which leads to looking for a solution to their problems outside of themselves? As with the 24 hr eating culture this is a symptom of our times rather than being an 'illness'. Nobody believes that this is not a tragedy, but can we ask the taxpayer to subsidise the costs of poor self control?
