Antes e Depois

Businessman removes 61 kg after inpatient treatment

Obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes, knee problems, unregulated sleep, and a sedentary lifestyle were all part of Alberto Lemos’ life. A very busy businessman, in 2020 he reached an unimaginable weight: 158.5 kilograms. Today, at 30 years old and 61 pounds lighter, he celebrates positive results that go beyond weight loss.

Alberto underwent inpatient treatment at Obesity clinic. There, he had a multidisciplinary follow-up that made it possible for him, in addition to following a balanced diet and physical routine, to be accompanied by a team of professionals such as doctors and psychologists who taught him to see his own life differently.

“The factors most associated with my weight gain were social and psychological factors, because I ended up conditioning my life to believe that it was only important to take care of one part. So I stopped caring about a major component, which is health, and went to take care of another component, which is work,” he recalls.

A year and a half after the end of in-clinic treatment, the patient is still celebrating progress, weight maintenance and a new way to face the journey with health.

“My life is so much better. Both psychological, physical, spiritual…in every aspect. I feel more proactive, and greyhound goals are so much greater. I am so grateful to God and all the professionals who went through this process. Would recommend it to anyone who wants and can make Himself is available to show already. I just feel grateful.”

Multifactorial inpatient treatment differentials

The number of obese people in Brazil reached 22.35% of the population in 2021. The rate was higher than the previous year which was 21.55%. Before the pandemic, in 2019, the rate was lower, at 20.27%. Data are from the Vigitel 2021 survey from the Ministry of Health. The projection is that in 2030, if we continue without due attention to this problem, 25% of Brazilians will be obese.

Doctor Kayak Petronillo, who works in the clinic, explains that obesity is a disease and must be treated as such. “Because it is multifactorial, that is, it has many original causes, such as endocrine, social, and psychological diseases, among others, and because it causes many other comorbidities, such as joint problems and increased chances of infarction, it must be treated as All fronts. Possible.”

In the clinic, the patient is monitored daily by a team of more than 70 professionals, including physicians, psychologists, nutritionists, physiotherapists, nursing staff, occupational therapists, physical educators, and self-knowledge educators.

For Alberto, the fact that he was treated in an interdisciplinary manner was central to the outcome. He says he’s already tried several methods to lose weight: diets, treatment with endocrinologists and medication. “Previous doctors gave me medication. I took it, but then I had a rebound effect. Asking the psychiatrist, psychiatrist, physiotherapist and all the other doctors for validation and help throughout these months makes us understand obesity and all that you carry with it.”

One of the most important points of inpatient treatment, explains Sergio de Queiroz Braga, medical director of Clínica da Obesidade, is the fact that the obese person is removed for a while from the social environment that caused the disease and brought back with the tools to stay focused on a healthy life.

“As examples in which this finding is most evident, we have countless patients who have already tried various forms of outpatient treatment, but without success; patients who have already undergone bariatric surgery and have regained lost weight; as well as patients for whom surgery is contraindicated,” highlights Braga. .


Non-surgical personalized treatment

Another very important point, according to the clinic’s specialists, is the fact that complex and invasive surgery is avoided, which is often positioned as a more viable option without adequately explaining the minuses, and this, yes, represents an opportunity to regain weight.

“We must first consider the possibility of a cascade of gastrointestinal effects in the postoperative period, such as gastric ulcers, gastric fistula, diarrhea, vomiting, intestinal obstruction, nutritional deficiencies in iron, vitamin B12, vitamin D and calcium,” he explains. Clinic medical director.

For Alberto, the fact that the treatment was completely natural was crucial. Another patient, Dion Maria Lima dos Santos, felt too young for such a drastic procedure, at the time he was only 19 years old. The young woman who was admitted to the hospital in 2020 lost about 40 kilograms and not only maintained her weight, but continued the process of losing weight after discharge, thanks to the independence she gained.

Regarding surgery, the young woman had two examples in the family that made her worried: one for someone who had regained weight again and the other who remained skinny, but whose health is fragile. Plus, she says that when researching and talking to a doctor, already believing that was the only way out, she saw that surgery doesn’t cure one’s mind, and what happens is that many people switch binge eating for another. A compulsion, such as drinking alcohol or shopping.

“At first, I was very scared. I was never far from my family. But at the same time, I was very optimistic, because I no longer had any expectations of getting what I have today: my health. When I came to know the completely natural way, it was like a gift that fell From the sky “.
