Obese Take to Food With Gusto, in Order to Be Eligible for Free Surgery

Some obese have not looked up from their plate full of food, and are seen to be overeating, just to be eligible for the free obesity surgery.//

Earlier, the government had stipulated that anybody with a BMI of 35 and a medical condition could get the obesity surgery done, free of cost. This has led to many obese patients, trying their best to avail the free surgery offered by the government.

People suffering obesity as well as health conditions like diabetes and blood pressure are going overboard with food, just to meet with the surgery eligibility criterion. Following this, the government is planning to raise the BMI limit to 45.

Spokeswoman Chrissie Palmer said: 'This is yet another process that has been turned into a postcode lottery.'

Gastric by-passes or lap bands can cost anywhere between £7,000 and £14,000. Successful outcomes often result in 70% reduction of excess weight.
