Weight Loss Surgery: Study Shows Long Term Digestive Problem
A conventional weight loss surgery relates to long-term gastrointestinal issues and food intolerance, a latest study recommends. Researchers observed the data on 249 extremely obese individuals who had what's identified as laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric circumvent, which lessens the stomach to a small purse about the dimensions of an egg.
Weight Loss Surgeries Lead To Digestive System Problems
Two years after surgical procedure, these patients had loss about 31 percent of their entire body weight on average. But related to the control group of 295 overweight people who didn't have procedures, the gastric patients were far more likely to undergo indigestion and an incapacity to tolerate various foods.
"It was now known from earlier studies that the Roux-en-Y gastric bypass might worsen gastrointestinal symptoms after operation," said lead study author Dr. Thomas Boerlage of MC Slotervaart in Amsterdam.
"Yet, most of these accounts concern the first year after operation," Boerlage added by email. A conducted study in 2012, finds 46 years old on average. About 45 percent of them had with high blood pressure and 29 percent had type 2 diabetes.
Studies surveyed all the patients and the evaluated group of obese individuals who didn't have surgery, to ask about 16 dissimilar gastrointestinal signs. They found the post-operative group had 2.2 symptoms on average, related to 1.8 with the controlled group.
The most common problems counted in indigestion, stomach babbling, flatulence, belching, and hard or loose stools, reports in the British Journal of Surgery. Starvation pains were more define in the non-surgery group. About 71 percent of the post-operative patients experienced food intolerance, associated with 17 percent in the control group.
By evaluation, people in the control group most frequently reported intolerance to milk and fried foods. There wasn't any connection between the amount of weight loss throughout the study and the number of food intolerances.
Outside its small size, one restriction of the study is that researchers needed data on symptoms before surgery, making it unbearable to regulate what gastrointestinal or digestive subjects might be due to the procedures, as noted.
Gastric bypass patients are also guided to avoid foods that may be hard to digest after an operation, and many of the patients experiencing food intolerance unsuccessful to follow this advice, noted Dr. Anita Courcoulas, a researcher at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.
"The top food intolerances comprised carbonated drinks, fried foods, and red meats, which all probable bypass patients are told to evade or remove in their diet," Courcoulas said by email. "So, while the study offers useful information, it is not shocking."
