BACKGROUND Gastric bypass surgery (GBP) is increasingly used as a treatment option in morbid obesity. Little is known about the effects of this surgery on bone mineral density (BMD) and the underlying mechanisms. To evaluate changes on BMD after GBP and its relation with changes in body composition and serum adiponectin, a longitudinal study in morbid obese subjects was conducted. METHODS Forty-two women (BMI 45.0 +/- 4.3 kg/m(2); 37.7 +/- 9.6 years) were studied before surgery and 6 and 12… CONTINUE READING
