Laparoscopic Metabolic Disease Surgery in Pune - Dr. Jaisingh Shinde
Metabolic syndrome is the name for a group of risk factors that raise your risk for heart disease and other health problems, such as diabetes and stroke. The term “metabolic” refers to the biochemical processes involved in the body’s normal functioning. Risk factors are traits, conditions, or habits that increase your chance of developing a disease.
A number of “metabolic” diseases and conditions are associated with severe or morbid obesity including Type 2 Diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, and obstructive sleep apnea. The gastrointestinal (GI) tract and small bowel play critical roles in the regulation of blood sugar levels, fat metabolism, and in the control of appetite and body weight. Metabolic syndrome can also lead to coronary heart disease (CHD), a condition in which a waxy substance called plaque (plak) builds up inside the coronary arteries. Plaque hardens and narrows the arteries, reducing blood flow to your heart muscle. This can lead to chest pain, a heart attack, heart damage, or even death.
