The truth is the fatter you get, the slimmer your chances of regaining control of your weight. The numbers of morbidly obese patients are on the rise and most have high blood pressure, diabetes, bad joints and increased risk of heart disease. It is not about laziness and lack of self-control. They are unable to take off the pounds for a variety of physical and psychological reasons.

Now, medical science shows that what was once considered a vanity surgery is a medical necessity for hundreds of thousands of people. Bariatric surgery - or weight-loss surgery - has proven to be an effective way for the morbidly obese to lose weight and cure diabetes.

The most common form is stomach stapling - gastric bypass surgery - which is now done safely as a laparoscopic surgery. Its success rate is high as patients who go through it claim they have regained a quality of life they thought they would never see again. The upfront costs of the surgery and the support are high, but doctors argue the long-term costs of morbid obesity will be much higher.

Some health insurance programs pay for gastric bypass surgery. Some people have to travel to get it.

People who undergo the procedure see their risk of death drop by between 40 and 89 per cent. Demand for the procedure is high.
