Your BMI is 52
Your BMI of 52 indicates that you are morbidly obese and potentially suffer from serious health conditions. Your weight puts extra pressure on your body and several organs could be affected by this. If diet and exercise show no weight loss results, you should ask the advice of a bariatric specialist about surgical weight loss options.
Each person’s body is unique and may have different caloric needs. When your body’s caloric balance status is in caloric excess, it means that you are eating more calories than your body is using and you will store these excess calories as fat. Besides diet and behavior, the environment and genetic factors may also have a significant effect in causing people to be overweight or obese. It is important to understand the risks you are facing if you do not take any measures to lose weight.
Overweight and obese individuals are at increased risk for many diseases and health conditions, including the following:
- High LDL
- Low HDL
- High levels
If you are seriously overweight, have tried dieting and exercise but you fail to lose weight, weight loss surgery is a viable option to consider. If your weight is impacting the quality of your life, bariatric surgery can help you regain control of your life and improve your health.

Gastric Sleeve Procedure For a BMI 52
Morbidly obese patients with a BMI of 40 and over are ideal candidates for sleeve gastrectomy. The total excess body weight patients will lose in time after the procedure is approximately 66%. During the procedure, the surgeon creates a smaller stomach pouch, which will limit the amount of food that can be eaten at one time. Patients will feel full sooner and stay full longer. The body will stop storing excess calories and will start using its fat supply for energy.
The gastric sleeve does not significantly affect normal digestion and absorption, as food passes through the digestive tract in the usual order.
