Weight Loss Surgery and High Blood Pressure

Hypertension, commonly known as high blood pressure, affects a significant portion of the Australian population and can lead to serious health complications.

It’s estimated 34% of adults are living with high blood pressure, which increases their risk of stroke, coronary heart disease, heart failure, and other forms of heart conditions.

Weight loss is a known improver of hypertension, making surgery an effective solution to improve, or even resolve, hypertension.

  • Following weight loss surgery, many patients see a significant decrease in systolic and diastolic blood pressure.
  • Reduced weight means less strain on the cardiovascular system, resulting in improved heart health.
  • Weight loss addresses the underlying causes of hypertension, such as obesity and insulin resistance.
  • Many patients are able to reduce or eliminate their reliance on medications.

Take the first step towards better blood pressure control and improved cardiovascular health.
