Researchers investigated the impact of bariatric surgery on cardiovascular health & diabetes, as well as statin therapy & visceral adipose tissue.
We highlight studies from the American Heart Association Scientific Sessions focused on the effect of bariatric surgery on cardiovascular health and diabetes. Researchers compared lifestyle modification to surgery, looked at quantity and quality of visceral adipose tissue, and examined the impact of statin therapy.
Quantity and Quality of Visceral Adipose Tissues: Their Roles into Comorbidities Related with Severe Obesity and Comorbidities Resolution after Bariatric Surgery
Does bariatric surgery result in changes in quantity and quality of adipose tissue to help resolve comorbidities?
More studies are needed, but VAT quantity is linked to some comorbidities of severe obesity, but both VAT quantity and quality changes after bariatric surgery appear to resolve comorbidities.
Would preoperative statin therapy reduce the benefits of bariatric surgery on diabetes remission and weight loss?
