So you're ready to take off the pounds. Endoscopic weight loss options help people lose weight without surgery or scars. Endoscopic approaches are reversible, minimally invasive, and less expensive than surgery. Endoscopic Solutions in Clarkston, MI, offers endoscopic weight loss options to their patients. Here are three endoscopic weight loss options that you should know about.
Intragastric Balloon- The Intragastric balloon, also referred to as a weight loss balloon, is a saline-filled balloon that is temporarily placed in the patient's stomach for several months to promote healthy weight loss. The weight loss balloon takes up about one-third of the space in the patient's stomach and helps them get used to too small portion sizes. With this procedure, you can experience up to three times the weight loss of exercise and dieting alone.
Probiotics- Hundreds of microorganisms live in people’s digestive systems, producing vitamins and breaking down fiber. But the type and amount of bacteria a person has can also affect their weight. Luckily, this problem can be addressed with probiotics which introduce good bacteria into a patient’s gut by way of pills, potentially reducing the amount of calories they absorb from food and affecting the hormones and proteins linked to appetite and fat storage. Bifidobacterium lactis strain B420 is a probiotic offered by our Clarkston doctor and has been shown to reduce total body weight by 4% in six months.
AspireAssist- Aspiration therapy with the AspireAssist is an endoscopic weight loss solution that prevents excess calories from being absorbed by the patient's body, allowing them to make progressive, healthy changes to their lifestyle. With this procedure, a tube is placed in the patient's stomach that allows them to evacuate up to 30% of their meals after eating, preventing the absorption of unwanted calories into the body and resulting in weight loss.
Excess pounds increase your risk of major health problems. Individuals who are obese or overweight have a higher risk for certain diseases such as strokes, heart attacks, cancer, and diabetes. Fortunately, losing weight can reduce your risk of developing these problems.
