What about bariatric surgery?

For people who are morbidly obese with comorbidities such as high blood pressure, diabetes, or high cholesterol, bariatric surgery can be considered. Bariatric surgery makes the stomach smaller helping the patient eat less and feel full and shortens the small intestine preventing some absorption. However the procedure is not without complications and some even gain weight back.
