Obesity Series #4: Obesity and Heart Failure

Obesity is linked to several factors that increase one’s risk for cardiovascular diseases. It can also be related to some cancers, gallbladder disease and osteoarthritis – to name a few. The good news? Those who successfully reduce their weight find themselves improving or resolving many of these obesity-related conditions. But, losing weight is no easy feat – just ask anyone who has tried. So, is bariatric surgery the answer? We speak to Dato Dr Tikfu Gee, consultant general bariatric and metabolic surgeon, Dr Mohd Kamal bin Mohd Arshad, a consultant cardiologist and Saw Bee Suan, senior dietitian of Sunway Medical Centre, about this.
