“…we can say with confidence that if we treat patients at a particular stage of obesity, we’ll be saving lives”, Mr Aly said. Mr Aly noted that a long-running study of obesity in Sweden has demonstrated the tangible benefits of this approach. Out of 4047 obese Swedish patients who enrolled in the study, 2010 received bariatric surgery while a control group of 2037 received conventional non-surgical treatment. Those who underwent surgery enjoyed “a 38 per cent reduction in cancer deaths and a 32 per cent reduction in cardiovascular death”, he said.
