Older Adults Enjoy Positive Health Effects of the Mediterranean Diet

As one of the foremost experts in bariatric surgery our team at Dr. Feiz and Assoicates is always interested in new research into weight loss for individuals of all ages. That's why we wanted to share some fascinating information we found in an article from Science Daily. The article details a study published in the Journals of Gerontology Series: A Biological Sciences and Medical Sciences regarding the Mediterranean diet.

The diet is associated with a lower risk of hyperuricemia, which has been associated with metabolic syndrome, hypertension, type 2 diabetes mellitus, chronic kidney disease, gout and cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. The study found a distinct decrease in hyperuricemia risk in older adults who partook in the diet. 

The Mediterranean diet is characterized by a high consumption of fruits, vegetables, legumes, olive oil, nuts and whole grain, as well as occasional dairy, meats and pastries. Due to its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, the diet has been widely touted among weight loss professionals.

Dr. Feiz is of course the premiere expert in performing gastric sleeve surgery to obese and severely overweight patients, but Dr. Feiz and his entire team stresses the importance of maintaining a healthy diet and fitness regimen throughout life.
