Weight loss achieved by laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB) induces an increase in high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDLc) but a small effect on low-density lipoprotein (LDL), although changes in their quality (size and composition) are uncertain. Our aim was to study the impact of weight loss, achieved 13-months after LAGB, on inflammation and dyslipidemia, focusing on HDL and LDL subfractions, and oxidized LDL (oxLDL).

Current methods for weight loss assessment after bariatric surgery do not meet the high standards required to accurately judge patient outcome in a fair and evidence-based way.
The purpose of this study was to (1) evaluate proton density fat fraction (PDFF) distribution across liver segments at baseline and (2) compare longitudinal segmental PDFF changes across time points i...
In this study we prospectively collected data on the use of liraglutide 3 mg in obese Arab patients. 2,092 patients were dispensed liraglutide 3 mg as part of routine care, their median age was 38 yea...
Bariatric surgery results in sustained weight loss, improvement of metabolic and hormonal changes, and reduction of comorbidities in obese patients. However, beneficial effects of bariatric surgery ar...
With the epidemic of obesity numerous mobile health (mHealth) applications have been designed with the goal of facilitating weight loss. This technology has the potential to focus behavioral modificat...
Bone loss may occur after bariatric (weight loss) surgery, but standard methods of measuring bone density in obese patients are potentially inaccurate. This study uses quantitative comput...
Although bariatric surgery is highly effective for inducing significant weight loss and resolution of comorbidities, weight regain following surgery is a common problem. This pilot study w...
Morbid obesity and its associated metabolic diseases are on the rise in the United States. Currently, the best treatment for obesity is bariatric surgery where both roux-en-Y gastric bypas...
Bariatric surgery is currently the only method that has proven long-term effectiveness in obesity. Although the benefit of physical activity on weight loss has been demonstrated, no correl...
The purpose of the study is to compare dietary habits after bariatric surgery in patients with poor weight loss versus good weight loss outcomes.
Surgical procedures aimed at producing major WEIGHT REDUCTION in patients with MORBID OBESITY.
Activities related to WEIGHT REDUCTION in patients with OBESITY. Treatment methods include DIET; EXERCISE; BEHAVIOR MODIFICATION; medications; and BARIATRIC SURGERY.
Abnormalities in the serum levels of LIPIDS, including overproduction or deficiency. Abnormal serum lipid profiles may include high total CHOLESTEROL, high TRIGLYCERIDES, low HIGH DENSITY LIPOPROTEIN CHOLESTEROL, and elevated LOW DENSITY LIPOPROTEIN CHOLESTEROL.
The discipline concerned with WEIGHT REDUCTION in patients with OBESITY.
Conditions with abnormally low levels of LIPOPROTEINS in the blood. This may involve any of the lipoprotein subclasses, including ALPHA-LIPOPROTEINS (high-density lipoproteins); BETA-LIPOPROTEINS (low-density lipoproteins); and PREBETA-LIPOPROTEINS (very-low-density lipoproteins).
