We prospectively examined brachial artery endothelial function using vascular ultrasound in 41 obese subjects treated with medical or surgical (gastric bypass) weight loss interventions. Surgical intervention produced greater weight loss and more pronounced improvement in endothelial function than medical treatment alone. Improved endothelial function with weight loss correlated strongly with fasting glucose but not with alteration in blood pressure, lipids, degree of weight loss, or plasma… CONTINUE READING
