Here, they share their perspectives on obesity treatment, especially in the low BMI patient population in their countries. They discuss minimally invasive treatment modalities, such as adjustable gastric banding, endoscopic suturing, and intragastric balloons, in helping to treat this vast patient population. Part 1, which appeared in the November 2014 issue of Bariatric Times, focused on the United States perspective. Part 2 describes the outside of the United States experience.

Jones, MD, MS, FACS FEATURED STUDENT Grace E. Kim, BS LESSON #2: BARIATRIC NUTRITION Part 1: Refeeding Syndrome INTRODUCTION Refeeding syndrome refers to the metabolic alterations that occur after the abrupt provision of nutrition to underweight, severely malnourished, or starved individuals. The topic of refeeding syndrome becomes relevant to the bariatric population when considering the initiation of aggressive parenteral and occasionally enteral nutrition in patients who have undergone bariatric surgery. 1 Refeeding syndrome is particularly common in those who have had very little or no food intake, including overweight patients who have eaten nothing for prolonged periods. 2 For example, Silk et al 2 describe in their case series a patient with obesity who developed electrolyte abnormalities within 24 hours of starting feeds despite adherence to the National Institutes of Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) treatment guidelines.
