Obesity and Weight Gain

Obesity and Weight Gain Mesenchymal Stem Cells Therapy at Swiss Medica Clinic 

Obesity is a fat deposition and weight gain due to the expense of adipose tissue. Adipose tissue can be deposited in areas of physiological sediments as well as in the area of ​​the breast, thighs and abdomen. Currently, obesity is considered as chronic metabolic disease which occurs at any age and manifested by excessive weight gain mainly due to excessive accumulation of adipose tissue, accompanied by an increased incidence of morbidity and mortality in the general population. The incidence of obesity in a civilized society is growing dramatically, despite the lack of changes in the genetic pool, regardless of hereditary factors.

SwissMedica provides up-to-date therapy with mesenchymal stem cells which implies using body's own cells not only for obesity treatment, but for many other diseases. If you still do not know about stem cell therapy, now it's your chance to improve your life quality. But at first let's consider the problem in details.

Obesity is likely to happen when an individual's body mass index (BMI) is 30 or higher. It’s calculated by dividing person’s weight and height in kg and m respectively.

Obesity disease symptoms

Clinical manifestations of different kinds of obesity are basically similar. There are differences in the excess fat distribution in the body and in the presence or absence of symptoms of nervous or endocrine system damage.

Endocrine obesity. Often appears when patient has some endocrine disorders (e.g., hypothyroidism, pituitary), symptoms of which dominate the clinical picture. At survey along with obesity, which is usually characterized by uneven deposition of fat on the body, other signs of hormonal disorders (e.g., feminization or masculinization, gynecomastia, hirsutism) often revealed.
Hypothalamic obesity. Observed in central nervous system diseases, characterized by the damage to the hypothalamus (in tumors and infections). Fat deposition observed mainly in the abdomen, buttocks and thighs.
Derkuma disease. Characterized by the presence of fat nodes and painful palpation.
Alimentary obesity. Common in individuals with hereditary predisposition. It develops when caloric intake exceeds energy loses, and as a rule characterizes several members of the same family. This type of obesity often affects women of middle and old age, leading a sedentary lifestyle.

Patients with extreme obesity often have changes in the cardiovascular system, lungs and digestive system. Sometimes tachycardia, muffled heart sounds and increased blood pressure occurs. Most obese patients have a tendency to constipation. They have back, ankle joints pain and knee arthritis. Obesity is also accompanied by irregular menstruation and possibility of amenorrhea. Obesity is a risk factor for diabetes, atherosclerosis, hypertension, coronary heart disease, with which it is often combined.

Children obesity

Development of children obesity is similar to adults and it’s going against the hereditary background or acquired disorders of metabolism. Obesity often occurs on the 1st year of life and in the next 10-15 years. Exogenous constitutional obesity is more common for children as well as for adults. It develops against the background of genetic predisposition to excess fat deposits under the frequent combination with a familial tendency to overeating and overfeeding. Excess fat deposition usually begins on the 1st year of life and unequally distributed among boys and girls. Girls are born with already more developed subcutaneous adipose tissue than boys; with age, this difference increases, reaching a maximum in adults, and causes a greater incidence of girls and women obesity.

Obesity consequences

Obesity affects all organs and systems, but cardiovascular system suffering first. Mechanical factors (sharp increase in the vascular bed due to excess adipose tissue accumulation of fat in the mediastinum and heart, diaphragm high standing, and so on) dramatically impede heart functioning. Patients often have hypertension and coronary atherosclerosis, which are additional factors of myocardium nutrition. It causes coronary heart and chronic cardiovascular diseases.
Obese patients usually have increased appetite. The diseases of the gastrointestinal tract (chronic gastritis, biliary dyskinesia, chronic cholecystitis, chronic colitis and others) are often identified, and the liver is usually enlarged due to fatty infiltration and stagnation. There is a lack of secretory activity of the pancreas and the predisposition to acute hemorrhagic necrosis developing.
Urinary system changes are expressed in function failure, proteinuria and microhematuria.
Obese patients often have nervous system changes. Headache, dizziness, drowsiness or insomnia, memory weakening – all this indicates a lack of blood supply to the brain due to the weakening of activity of the left ventricle and cerebral vascular sclerosis, or occurs as a manifestation of a pathological condition of the higher parts of the central nervous system. Obese patients often have peripheral nerves function disruption.

SwissMedica obesity mesenchymal stem cells treatment as the best way to withstand the problem

The stem cells overweight treatment helps patients at whatever stage of obesity they are. Revolutionary technique using patient's own stem cells involves the implantation of healthy cells into the tissue with subsequent breeding to hundreds of billions similar ones. Thus, normal cells predominate and healing occurs. With the use of stem cells, obesity is retreating fast.

Obesity treatment in SwissMedica XXI century clinics is made after a thorough patient examination, identifying the degree of obesity and physiological characteristics of a particular organism.
