The Integral Clinic for Obesity offers a series of evaluations and innovative concepts in its treatment.

Doctors here perform several medical tests that will help you determine the presence of other diseases in addition to the primary one that is obesity (comorbidities).

Besides a complete nutritional evaluation with the complete and adequate anthropometric measurements, you can access to an exhaustive study about your body composition with the most innovative system.

Also, through a psychological evaluation you can determine your emotional state that will help you determine psychological alterations related to your eating behavior.

If you are a suitable candidate for obesity surgery, a surgeon will evaluate and propose the best technique according to your characteristics. If the surgery proceeds, you will receive the best medical monitoring, nutritional and psychological support, as well as sports medicine. All of this comes in a package that is planned to last 6 months. The reduction plan is mandatory, and after a certain period of time you can attend more spaced sessions.

Nevertheless, there are many more alternatives so this plan has flexibility depending on each patient circumstances.

 

What is Morbid Obesity and Clinically Severe Obesity?

Obesity turns morbid when you suffer from one or more abnormal conditions or illnesses related with obesity (comorbidities), this can provoke serious disabilities and even death.

There are some terms like ‘clinically extreme obesity’ or ‘super-obesity’, this conditions only refer to the extreme index of body mass.
Different societies worldwide that have studied about obesity and bariatric surgery have agreed that morbid obesity is a serious illness and it has to be treated like one.

 

What causes Morbid Obesity?

Obesity has multiple and complex reasons, it cannot be a result of just over-eating. Investigations have proof that in many cases the direct cause has to do with genetics.

When obesity is established, the nutritional plans and the exercise program have limited results to produce a long time benefit.
