Healthy Child Birth after Weight Loss Surgery

A research at Laval University found that babies born to women after weight loss surgery have few cardiovascular risks when compared with their siblings born before the weight loss surgery. This happens due to the metabolic changes and also the weight loss surgery has good impact on the inflammatory diseases.  Weight loss surgery for a mother affects the genes of the child and leads to several diseases and risks. Researches on bariatric surgery by Laval University revealed that children born to mothers who undergo bilio pancreatic operation will have less chances of obesity and they will also have good insulin resistance and the child will have lower risk of cardiovascular disease and the blood pressure will be normal.

The research was carried out by taking the blood samples of 25 children who were born to mothers before the bilio pancreatic surgery and the blood samples from other 25 children who were born to mothers after the bilio pancreatic surgery. The body mass index of the mothers was 45 before the surgery and BMI was 27 after the surgery on an average. The DNA was tested by a special tool from the blood samples taken from the mothers and their children in order to find out the changes caused in genes by the process called methylation. When tested, it was found that the methylation levels were unlike in both the children, the children who were born to mothers after the surgery and the children born to the mothers before the surgery. Research revealed that 5500 genes were different in the children who were born before and after the surgery to the mothers. There will be very high impact on the children born to the mother after the surgery and there will be great effect on the metabolic rates and methylation levels.

Basically the research tells that maternal obesity will affect the obesity of the child and also increases the cardiovascular risk.
