Clinically severe obesity can have serious health consequences for patients. Bariatric surgery has been established as the most effective treatment for morbidly obese patients, with a substantial reduction in mortality, risk of developing comorbidities, and costs.
- Bariatric patients require scrupulous assessment and counseling in order to prolong weight loss and prevent nutritional deficiencies. The life-long metabolic and nutritional observance is suggested after bariatric surgery, mainly because pre-surgical deficiencies are common in morbidly obese patients and can be aggravated by restrictive or malabsorptive procedures.
- Nutritional requirements in patients who have undergone bariatric surgery are frequently not met, and various nutritional deficiencies (vitamin B12, vitamin D, iron, calcium, etc.) are frequently observed as well. Accordingly, the adherence of patients to long-term supplementation regimens is poor in most cases.
- Over the last ten years, clinical research on bariatric surgery has grown exponentially, mostly focusing on weight loss and reduction in comorbidities, but leaving gaps in the nutritional and health status of the subject after surgery in the long term.
- This Special Issue of the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (IJERPH) focuses on the current state of knowledge on The Nutritional Management of Pre- and Post-Surgery Obesity Patients. New research papers and reviews are welcome to this Issue.
Potential topics may include, but are not limited to:
- Preoperative nutritional management of patients with morbid obesity;
- Post-surgery diet progression;
- Perioperative nutritional, metabolic, and nonsurgical support of bariatric surgery patients;
- Micronutrient deficiencies after bariatric surgery;
- Nutritional outcomes after bariatric surgery and differences in racial and ethnic groups;
- Bone mineral density changes after bariatric surgery and relationship to vitamin D.
