Gastric Bypass Surgery In Mexico – BMI Requirements You Must Fulfill To Qualify

Tired of your fancy crash diets that don’t work and exercise plans that don’t work fast enough?

Gastric bypass surgery might be your answer. Did you know you must pass certain BMI requirements to qualify for gastric bypass surgery, especially in Mexico?

Body Mass Index or BMI applies to most adult women and men aged 20 and over.

What is BMI?

BMI is the measure of body fat in relation to height and weight. Basically, it’s a screening tool that can be used to determine if a person is underweight, overweight, obese, or a healthy weight for their height.

Another advantage is keeping a lookout on health risks—proper weight maintenance is necessary for increased health. So if a person’s BMI is outside of healthy range, health risks may significantly increase.

How to Calculate BMI

The same BMI values can be used for both genders and are also age-dependent. Body mass index is calculated based in the following formula:

BMI Formula: Bodyweight in kilograms divided by height, in meters squared or BMI = x KG/ (y M * y M)

Where KG x is bodyweight and y is height in m.

There are many reasons for maintaining a healthy weight but sometimes it’s impossible, despite healthy eating, diet and exercise.

Gastric bypass surgery is the answer for many who have tried everything but cannot shed those extra 10 pounds or so.

BMI Requirements for Gastric Bypass Surgery

Gastric bypass surgery is often seen as a last alternative for obese or overweight people trying to lose weight. Keep in mind that this surgery shouldn’t be considered an effective weight-loss tool. It isn’t a weight-loss tool and should only be considered in dire cases of obesity or considerable weight.

Another requirement of this particular weight-loss surgery is that you must be between the ages of 16 and 70 years old for ideal results.

Everyone who has successfully undergone gastric bypass or any weight-loss surgery knows how much dedication and effort is required to maintain weight while practicing healthy eating habits and lifestyle.
