CONTEXT Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) is among the most effective treatments for extreme obesity and obesity-related complications. However, despite its potential efficacy, many patients do not achieve and/or maintain sufficient weight loss. OBJECTIVE Our objective was to identify genetic factors underlying the variability in weight loss outcomes after… CONTINUE READING
