Weight Loss Surgery Doesn’t Raise the Fracture Risk

According to new study, obese people who have undergone the weight-loss surgery, like gastric band or gastric bypass, are not in the risk of broken bones in first few years after having the surgery. But 3 to 5 years after this surgery, these patients may have an increased risk of fractures.

Surgical treatment is a very effective method to lose excess weight for many obese people. However, for few years after the surgery these outcomes are reassuring for the patients; but influence on the skeletal health cannot be excluded for lifetime.

From previous studies, the weight loss surgery alone has been shown to diminish the bone density of patient, as the surgery is linked to the loss of bone density.

From new studies, researches compared the broken bones rate among people who had weight loss operation with similar age groups of same sex, body mass index and age who didn’t have surgery; here body mass index is the fat measurement of the body based on weight and height.

From these new studies, broken bones risk is not much higher even after 3 years of their surgery for people who had the weight loss surgery previously. This risk is inched upwards from 3 to 5 years after having the surgery, and people who have more significant loss in their BMI had higher risk for the fractures, that the researchers noted.

Obesity is the increasing health problem, which affects so many people worldwide. It has been recognized that the surgery is the effective method to weight loss for so many individuals with morbid obesity. For first few years after having surgery, these outcomes are reassuring for the patients; however do not completely exclude negative effect on the skeletal health. But the researchers concluded that, at least in the short term changes in the bone density are not leading to the fracture risk.

For morbid obese people, undergoing weight loss surgery can bring a new turn in their life towards healthy lifestyle habits. But before considering any kind of surgery, make sure to consult an experienced weight loss or bariatric surgeon.

Weight Loss And Menopause

Research has suggested that weight loss could help in banishing the symptoms of menopause. Women who are at menopause stage, losing weight by eating low-fat food rich in vegetables and fruits could eliminate or reduce their night sweats and hot flashes.

From recent studies it has been proved that losing weight can reduce certain hormones levels, which trigger symptoms. Women who are obese tend to produce higher levels of estrogen hormone that may aggravate night sweats and hot flashes. And having excess fat also prevents the body from cooling down followed by the flash.

Women who will lose weight with this healthier diet- increasing fruits, vegetables, whole grains and decreasing fat were specifically more likely to eliminate or reduce symptoms.

As most of the women can gain with as their age increase, weight gain prevention or weight loss may provide a visible strategy in order to help in eliminating night sweats and hot flashes that are associated with the menopause stage. Greater body weight provides insulation, which may hinder hot flashes, night sweats and heat loss offer a way to reduce the heat.

Women with the menopausal problems who were on the low fat foods rich in fruits, vegetable and whole grains, who were not undergoing hormone replacement treatment and who lost minimum 10 pounds of body weight in a year are more likely to observe hot flashes and night sweats disappear or reduced after a year than women who were maintained their healthy weight. Especially weight loss is loss of the excess fat but not the lean mass, which help in alleviating the night sweats and hot flashes.

Weight Loss Surgery May Reduce Alcohol Cravings

Weight loss surgery not only reduces the excess weight of a patient, and also diminishes their admiration for alcohol, which is founded by researchers.

The gastric bypass surgery is one, which involves the stomach stapling in order to remain a small pouch on the top of the stomach that is then connected to small intestines. Then most of the food bypasses the original stomach and also a bit of the intestine too. Significantly this will reduce the food intake.

From recent researches, it is found that those who had weight loss surgery reported drinking lesser alcohol after having the surgery as compared to before. But it is limited only for the Roux-en-Y surgery.

The researchers also performed this research afterwards on rats, and found that the rats also stopped having alcohol afterwards.

But sudden drop in the alcohol consumption may lead to down in a hormone that is GLP-1. When the partly digested items hits the middle portion of the small intestine that is jejunum, then GLP-1 can be produced. This hormone will switch on the production of the insulin, which is necessary in lowering the blood glucose levels. After having the Roux-en-Y surgery, this portion of the small intestine can become much closer to stomach, which causes it to be exposed to the much higher nutrients level that normally would be.

The extra GLP-1 may influence cravings. This hormone will play a major role in limiting the food that we eat. GLP-1 will travel through blood in order to get the brain, from where it can think to stimulate abhorrence to food.
