Medical and Surgical Obesity Treatments: Part 3

Season 5, Ep. 12

Welcome to PART 3 of our conversation with Dr. Garth Davis discussing obesity in America.


Obesity in the United States is a major health concern. 75% of the population is overweight or obese. The management of obesity is of keen interest, and there is disagreement as to how obesity should be addressed and managed. The complications of obesity include coronary artery disease, diabetes, fatty liver and cirrhosis, an increased risk of cancer, stroke, heart attack, and an increase in disability. Doctor Garth Davis, and accomplished bariatric surgeon, joined Dr. Galati on YOUR HEALTH FIRST this past week. They talked about the medical management of obesity, as well as surgical options for weight loss. Dr. Davis can be reached by going to WWW.DRGARTHDAVIS.COM.

"You Have Cancer"

Season 7, Ep. 1
This week on , we spent time talking about modifiable risk factors to reduce your chance of developing cancer. The special guest this week was oncologist Susan Escudier, who practices at Texas Oncology .With regard to cancer, there are multiple modifiable lifestyle changes that can have a big impact on the eventual risk for cancer and its development. The American Cancer Society recently published data indicating that 42% of cancer cases and 45% of cancer deaths in the United states are linked to modifiable risk factors. In other words, these cases could be prevented. Based on recent data, that translates to 660,000 cancer cases and 265,000 cancer deaths that could have been prevented.The main modifiable risk factors include smoking, secondhand smoke, obesity, excessive alcohol intake, eating red and processed meats, diets low in fruits and vegetables as well as dietary calcium, physical inactivity, UV radiation, and specific cancer associated infections including H. pylori, hepatitis B, hepatitis C, herpesvirus type 8, HIV, and human papilloma virus.In the weeks to come on the radio, we are going to continue this series of modifiable lifestyle changes and focus on other disease states including heart disease, liver disease, kidney disease, dementia, lung disease, and diabetes.
