Just like diabetes and hypertension, obesity is also a disease. Obesity results in various other diseases that may eventually become fatal. Just like not all diabetes can be controlled with diet, not all people with obesity can get their weight down with diet and exercise.

People with obesity and multiple other diseases like sleep apnea, uncontrolled diabetes, fatty liver and hypertension have a poor quality of life and reduced lifespan due to these diseases. So, anyone with obesity and other associated disorders would benefit from using anti-obesity drugs like Semaglutide, Liraglutide or Tirzepatide. People with higher degrees of weight gain and related diseases also will benefit from bariatric surgery. Bariatric surgery has been shown to prolong the lifespan and reduce the risk of diseases like diabetes, hypertension, sleep apnea, fatty liver and heart disease.
