    [FONT=&quot]Weight loss programs are run by many centres around the world let’s see the truth behind all these [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]Drug therapy:[/FONT][FONT=&quot]
    what are Drugs and how they acts. Basically most of the drugs suppress the hunger centre in the brain, thus reducing appetite. The claims made by manufacturers confuse the consumers. It has found that most of the diet pills contain sibutramine, which is a controlled substance that can cause high blood pressure, seizures, rapid heartbeat, palpitations, heart attack or stroke. Another significantly dangerpous ingredient can be rimonabant, which lacks FDA approval for its use in U.S. . It may be associated with increased risk of depression.one more warning came form FDA related to rare occurrence of liver failure in people who take the medicines. It warns consumers using the medicine to contact a health professional immediately if they experience signs of liver injury, such as itching, yellow eyes, dark urine, light-colored stools or loss of appetite.

    [FONT=&quot]Surgery:[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]Lets see what are different kind of Weight management surgeries available in modern science .[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]Liposuction:[/FONT][FONT=&quot] Fat removal from specific areas of the body is called Liposuction. Largely a cosmetic procedure, this can be potentially dangerous if large amounts of fat are removed. Liposuction has limitations and results may not be perfect. Liposuction has many potential hazards and patients must accept the possibility of complications. Infection risk is same as other surgeries. Wound care and antibiotic therapy are often necessary to reduce the risk of complications. Severe liposuction infections lead to narcotizing fasciitis, or tissue consuming bacteria, as well as toxic shock syndrome. Both infections can be life threatening. Other complications can be blood clots, puncture wounds into the organs and changes in sensation at the liposuction site.[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]Gastric stapling / banding / bypass:[/FONT][FONT=&quot] Surgeries (Bariatric) belonging to this group reduce the size of the stomach in order to have gastric fullness early resulting in weight loss. Laparoscopic gastric banding involves the surgical implantation of a banding device. Patient may undergo device slipping or wearing a hole into the stomach over time. Some patients may also have an allergic reaction to the implanted band.[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]
    Gastric balloon: A balloon inflated inside the stomach reduces the capacity of the stomach and works on the same principle as the previous surgery.\[/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot] [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]It’s always good to consider surgery only in extreme situations.[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]
    Gymnasiums:
    A well designed exercise regime is essential for the healthy body. Proper exercises strengthen your muscles, reduce weight and boost stamina. But if you join gym to burn calories and continue to consume the wrong foods at another place then the whole effort is gone. Although a workout is good but for maximum health benefits you have to incorporate a proper diet plan to get the desired results.
