Obesity is a disease caused by an excessive amount of body fat. This happens principally because of high-calorie intake and a sedentary lifestyle. The BMI helps to detect whether a person has obesity or not, in most cases a BMI level above 30.0 means that a person has this condition.
A change in lifestyle is key to combating Obesity. Eating whole foods, cutting calorie intake, make physical activity and in special cases having gastric bypass surgery can help in the treatment for obesity.
Our skilled nurses provide post-operative patients with specific information about drinking/eating, caring for drainage tubes, skin and wound care, ambulation, self-care, and signs and symptoms that require medical attention. Nursing care includes help with diet and exercise follow-up.
During these periods, our nurses serve as a source of information and a monitor of patient progress. Follow-up calls and visits to patients and families after surgery are essential in determining the welfare of the patient, offering suggestions for managing the patient’s care, and learning if any complications are developing. At the same time, Signature’s nurses can assess the psychological condition of the patient and his or her adjustment to a new way of living and suggest any needed resources.
