Obesity is a condition that has far-reaching effects on many domains of the human body – physical, mental, and emotional, among others. A recent scientific study has shed more light on the effects weight loss has on human mental function. This study by Lu et al. has revealed there is a potential positive link between cognitive function/ability and dietary restriction. The study showed that the overall effect of dietary restriction on cognitive function is significant to the point of improving global brain function and memory.
These positive effects on cognitive function are only a handful of the many benefits that weight loss can provide and highlights the importance of maintaining caloric restriction in an overall healthy lifestyle. Our surgical interventions, including the gastric sleeve and laparoscopic gastric banding, can help patients achieve weight loss and enjoy improvements in mental function and clarity.
