According to a recent study, researchers stated that bariatric surgery can lower down the risk of cardiac attacks, strokes, and fatality in obese people. However, the individuals who regained at least 20% of the weight loss were inclined to develop diabetes (more than one-third percent) and high cholesterol (two-third percent).
As per the two latest research published lately in the Journal of the American Medical Association, the patients who had good results from the bariatric procedure were up to 40% less inclined to get a heart attack or stroke than those patients who struggle with lifestyle changes or medication. The panels, from the University of Pittsburgh’s Graduate School of Public Health in Pennsylvania and Kaiser Permanente in California reported that the results indicated high potential benefits from the expensive surgery. But after that, the close follow-up is also required to ensure that patients maximize their results. Bariatric surgeries are known to be weight loss procedures that reduce the quantity of food the stomach can hold and restraint nutrient absorption, or both. These surgeries can charge anywhere between $20,000 and $25,000, as per the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases.
Recently, the University of Pittsburgh’s Graduate School of Public Health also stated that alcohol disorder screening fails in patients who undergo weight-loss surgery. People who sustained Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery have increased the threat to alcohol-related problems. However, similar screening methods that aid physicians to identify patient’s high risk for alcohol use disorder failed to perform well in this population, according to a long-term and multicenter study which was carried by University of Pittsburgh’s Graduate School of Public Health scientists. In the Annals of Surgery, the study also revealed that patients who were operated with Roux-en-Y gastric bypass procedure progressively increased their frequency and measure of alcohol intake in the 7 Years after their surgery.
