A disturbing report article reported that The International Diabetes Federation predicts at least one in 10 adults could have diabetes by 2030, according to its latest statistics. Although this prediction is based on international statistics it is still quite a disturbing figure. The study encompassed both types of diabetes which includes adult onset diabetes, as well as people born with the disease.It is projected that the numbers will rise not only because of obesity but also because of an aging population.Most of the projected cases are expected to be Type II diabetes which is linked to obesity and a sedentary lifestyle. For these patients to develop diabetes it is unnecessary considering the fact that the causes are, in fact for the most part preventable. Dr. Kim encourages his patients who have successfully lost weight to be proactive about their appearance. Celebrating weight loss is only one half of the equation. Just as important is making sure that the patient feels good about how she looks. Often patients have loose skin on their abdomen or sagging breast after weight loss. This may bother them tremendously and they seek the advice of Dr. Kim to have the skin removed. Dr. Kim may recommend a breast lift and possible breast implants to help the patient return to more full and a voluptuous breasts. Dr. Kim may recommend an abdominoplasty as a solution for loose skin on the abdomen. This procedure also gives Dr. Kim the ability to tighten the muscles and makes for a flatter more aesthetically pleasing abdomen. Maintaining a healthy and stable weight is not only a health concern but it also helps patients to increase their self-esteem and self-confidence.
