Aim: Malabsorptive bariatric procedures lead to significant metabolic improvement with ongoing weight loss. The aim of our retrospective analysis was to assess the impact of bariatric surgery on three important metabolic and biochemical abnormalities associated with obesity: diabetes, liver function test (LFT), and dyslipidaemia.Methods: All patients who had laparoscopic gastric bypass (LGB) or sleeve gastrectomy (SG) over the last 7 years were identifie...

Renal function variation after bariatric surgery: which measurement do we rely on?

Bakhshi Saloni , Barrett Abigail , Nayak Ananth , Varughese George , Cheruvu Chandra , Varadhan Lakshminarayanan

Introduction: Interpretation of renal function in patients with obesity and post-bariatric surgery is a clinical challenge. EGFR could be falsely low and weight loss does not reflect muscle mass. The aim of our study was to compare the fluctuations in renal function assessment in patients undergoing bariatric surgery.Methods: 200 patients who underwent bypass surgery or sleeve gastrectomy were analysed. Six different renal function parameters were analys...
