Weight loss from Bariatric surgery could reverse permanent ageing


According to a research, weight loss from bariatric surgery emerges to reverse the untimely ageing associated with obesity. The research exposed whether bariatric surgery a process that bypasses the gastrointestinal area and leaves only a pouch of stomach and the resultant weight loss could reverse the premature ageing in obese patients. The research incorporated 76 patients who were 40 years old on average and had a body mass index (BMI) of at least 35 kg/m2. The average BMI was 44.5 kg/m2. All enduring had been unable to lose weight through lifestyle changes and were referred for bariatric surgery.

The founder composed blood samples before surgery and one and two years afterwards. They evaluate the levels of premature ageing markers in the blood before and after surgery. One year subsequent to surgery BMI had considerably dropped to an average of 27.5 kg/m2, which amounts to a 38 per cent reduction. This was accompanied by decline in the pro-inflammatory cytokines plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 and interleukin-6 and an increase in the anti-inflammatory cytokine interleukin-10. Philipp Hohensinner, founder at the Medical University of Vienna. Patients had longer telomeres and less inflammation two years later conveyed that, obese people are prematurely old. Bariatric surgery drastically reduces the amount of food patients can eat. People lose around 30 to 40 per cent of their whole body weight in the first year. Telomeres are the interior clock of each cell. Telomeres get little when a cell divides or when oxidative pressure causes them to break. When the telomeres get very small the cell can no longer divide and is replenished or stays in the body as an aged cell. Previous research found that obese women had shorter telomeres compared to women with a healthy weight, which amounted to an added eight years of life. Two years after surgery, patients had telomeres that were 80 per cent longer than they had been before the procedure. The founder also evaluated telomere oxidation which causes the telomeres to break and get little.
