DQ weight loss

Part 1: 

Introduction: Digestion is an essential process for acquiring  nutrients for metabolism.  Metabolism, the sum of anabolic and catabolic  reactions that consume or produce energy, controls several important  body parameters such as body weight. The proper interplay between  metabolism and digestion is important, and when that fails, we have  metabolic disorders, such as diabetes, food intolerance, or obesity. In  particular, obesity has become a common, serious, and costly disease.  Weight-loss surgeries or approaches can help lose weight and lower the  risk of medical problems associated with obesity.

For this post, you will:

  1. Choose one weight-loss treatment and investigate an associated pro  or con. Only 1 pro or con per student. (A pro cannot just be weight  loss). Weight loss surgeries or approaches that you can select are:
  • Adjustable Gastric Banding
  • Sleeve Gastrectomy
  • Gastric Bypass Surgery (Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass)
  • Vagal Blockade or vBloc
  • Biliopancreatic Diversion
  • Gastric Balloon/Intragastric Balloon System
  • AspireAssist
  • Keto diet
  • Intermittent fasting
  1. How does your choice work? Does it work by restriction,  malabsorptive restrictive surgery, by the implantation of an electrical  device, etc.?
  2. Are there some restrictions based on age, health, or population groups related to your choice of weight loss intervention?
  3. Are the long-term benefits of your choice? If so, what are they? If not, why not?
