Puppy falco to support blind master, but martin rutter is concerned

Great excitement at Wolfgang in Austria: The blind composer and musician has great hopes for puppy Falco. In the future, the white German shepherd should accompany him every step of his life – just as his predecessor Amadeus once did. “Dog Pro” Martin Rutter is skeptical at first.

When a puppy moves in, it’s always a very special moment. In the current episode of “Martin Rutter – The Puppies are Coming” (Sundays, 5 p.m., on RTL), the arrival of puppy Falco at Wolfgang Niegelhell’s home in Austria is particularly emotional, however, because: The 56-year-old went blind within a very short time 30 years ago after an eye attack. “For me, a world collapsed at that moment”, Wolfgang remembers “but I have a great, exciting life today, I am a musician and composer by profession”. The white German shepherd puppy Falco is to support him as a guide dog for the blind in everyday life and give him more independence again.

The gastric balloon

People in Germany are getting fatter and fatter. According to a report by the DGE (Deutsche Gesellschaft fur Ernahrung e. V.), 59 percent of men and 37 percent of women are already overweight. [1] People who are overweight (obesity) often suffer from concomitant diseases such as high blood pressure, diabetes or cardiovascular problems and an increased risk of heart attack or stroke. In addition, there may be social discrimination, isolation or depression. In addition to genetic factors or metabolic diseases, poor diet and lack of exercise are the main causes of excess adipose tissue formation. In such cases, a gastric balloon can help to reduce weight permanently.

What is the aim of a gastric balloon treatment??

The main goal of all treatment methods for obesity is to reduce overweight and thus the risk factors for serious diseases. For patients with a BMI over 27, gastric balloon therapy can contribute to effective weight loss success, allowing them to participate more actively and confidently in social life again. In most cases, people suffering from obesity do not manage to reduce their weight permanently on their own. The intragastric balloon offers – without surgical intervention – a simple and effective way to achieve a significant and lasting weight loss. A gastric balloon is used to reduce the volume of the stomach, allowing patients to eat significantly less food. A healthy diet and plenty of exercise should always be an integral part of this therapeutic measure.
