  • Study Confirms Protein Intake Recommendations

    When it comes to eating after bariatric surgery, weight loss surgery patients are constantly reminded to “eat protein first” and that “protein is the priority.” Although this recommendation is always at the top of dietary guidelines, there is little research that has examined the association between protein intake and fat free mass loss. A new study has examined the protein intake goal and confirms that these aren’t merely words, but good and accurate advice for healthy weight loss after bariatric surgery.

    There are no advantages to delaying surgery until antibiotic therapy has been administered for several weeks. After undergoing surgery performed within 24 hours of diagnosis, the patients have fewer complications, are back on their feet earlier, and can leave the hospital more quickly.

  • GERD prevalence raised even in mild–moderate COPD, bronchiectasis

    Researchers from Australia have found that the rate of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is twice as high in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or bronchiectasis as in people without lung disease.

    Furthermore, the researchers found evidence for pulmonary aspiration of gastric contents among these patients which, if confirmed in future studies, could support the hypothesis that this contributes to lung disease severity. The study participants were 27 patients with mild or moderate COPD and 27 with moderate or severe bronchiectasis as well as 17 controls.

    Ambulatory 24-hour esophageal pH monitoring showed that 37% of COPD patients and 40% of bronchiectasis patients had reflux compared with 18% of controls. All controls with GERD had asymptomatic distal reflux, while eight COPD patients had distal reflux only and two had proximal and distal reflux. In bronchiectasis, seven patients had distal reflux only, three had proximal and distal reflux, and two had proximal reflux only.

    Most severely obese teenagers who underwent bariatric weight-loss surgery (WLS) experienced no major complications, according to a study published by JAMA Pediatrics, a JAMA Network publication.

    WLS is being used to treat severely obese adolescents but there are limited data about the surgical safety of these procedures. The volume of adolescent WLS in the United States tripled from the late 1990s to 2003 and shows no decline, according to the study background.

  • Obesity may be caused by ‘hunger gene’

    Source: Medical News Today

    Some people are able to tuck into chocolate every day and not gain weight, while others struggle to keep their weight down regardless of what they eat. Exactly why this is has been unclear, but now researchers point to a genetic mutation as the cause.

    Researchers from the University of Cambridge in the UK say that mutation of a gene called KSR2 may cause continued hunger pangs in patients who are obese, as well as slow their metabolism – the rate at which the body burns calories.
