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.

These procedures can help patients by reducing the risk factors though weight loss and also accompanying the change in body’s metabolism and then associated working of heart.

This study was conducted on approximately 52 patients, who are mostly female patients, who had type2 diabetes and also obesity. Almost 40% of the patients had the diabetic nephropathy, which is one form of kidney disease that can need dialysis and may cause kidney failure.

All the patients who were underwent the weight loss surgery are intended to help the people to lose excess weight. Most popular weight loss surgery is gastric bypass surgery; in this the stomach of patient is stapled in order to make it very smaller, and then the small intestine can be routed to smaller pouch.

The researcher said that, after 5years, almost 60% of the patients who had the diabetic nephropathy were no longer had that condition.

These researches also found that 25% of the patents those who don’t have the diabetic nephropathy while doing the surgery were eventually developed that condition. This occurrence rate is about 50% less than the rate in people who had diabetes and don’t have weight loss surgery.

Weight Loss Surgery and Alcohol Risk

A study by the National Institute of Health research consortium has found that patients who had undergone the common weight loss surgery have a higher risk of getting alcohol use disorders 2 years after having the surgery.

The gastric bypass surgery can double the risk factors of alcohol as compared to the bariatric surgery by using banding method, according to the new research, which is published in Journal of the American Medical Association.

Nearly this study has taken 2,000 patients from 10 hospitals. Initially examine the risk of alcohol use disorders after and before several types of weight loss surgeries, including the roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery, which is the most commonly preferred weight loss surgery in the United States. This method involves stapling major part of the stomach and then rerouting the intake food directly to the lower portion of the intestine, which makes it difficult to eat large meals, and limiting the calorie absorption.

The weight loss surgery seems to raise the risk of alcohol issues by making the body very sensitive to the lower doses of alcohol: it permits more alcohol to get into the bloodstream very fast because it jumps most of the stomach part and is better taken by the intestines.

Frequent alcohol consumption before having the surgery i.e. at least two times per week also independently related to the higher risk of the postoperative AUD.

The study results recommend that physicians should be aware of the symptoms and signs of AUD and prefer counseling after doing the weight loss surgery. Patients who have weight loss surgery should be aware of risks of alcohol problems to acquire effective results of the surgery.

If the surgery is made with small cuts, then patient can leave the hospital soon, and with small medical bill, followed by the laparoscopic gastric bypass surgery.

During this weight loss surgery, the physician makes a pouch at the top portion of the stomach, and then connects that to small intestine so that the patient can only absorb fewer calories during digestion. This surgery needs a tiny camera being inserted and some small cuts.

From safety records, it has been proven that about 19% of patients who were undergone the open surgery, at least had one complication, like requiring blood transaction or developing pneumonia. But with less invasive surgery, just 12% of patients were developed complications.

According to the findings, which were published in Archive of surgery, it has founded that 1 in 500 over weight patients in the group of open surgery died during or even shortly after having the surgery, as compared with 1 in 1,000 in laparoscopic group. Patients who are undergoing the open surgery may also need to stay in the hospital for longer time, on average it is 3.5 days versus 2.4 days.

From the surgeon’s view, the ability to see while doing the surgery can be enhanced if this is done laparoscopic ally.

From patients view, there is very less pain, so that the patient can move and walk and also return to usual activities sooner. To know more information about any kind of weight loss surgery and its benefits and risks, you can contact a weight loss surgeon.
