Jones, MD, MS, FACS FEATURED STUDENT Benjamin N. Rome Is Bariatric Surgery Cost Effective? INTRODUCTION One-third of adults in the United States are obese. 1 Obesity is associated with significantly increased morbidity, mortality, and healthcare costs, due in part to its many associated comorbidities, including heart disease, diabetes, hypertension, and certain cancers. 2 Bariatric surgery is effective at promoting sustained weight loss and reducing obesity-related comorbidities, especially type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). 3 In addition, recent studies have found that patients who undergo bariatric surgery have reduced long-term mortality. 4,5 There is widespread interest in understanding whether bariatric surgery is cost effective. Do surgical weight loss procedures offer good value for money?

Nutritional guidelines can help individuals monitor and improve the quality of their diet. Guidelines can be futher honed to apply to a particular population, providing a framework for the correct selection of nutrients to be consumed. by LIC. FANTELLI PATEIRO LAURA, LIC.
