Mental illness does not predict weight loss after bariatric surgery

April 27, 2017

In patients with obesity, preoperative mental illness did not predict differential weight loss up to 2 years after bariatric surgery, according to findings published in Obesity.

In a study of more than 8,000 patients who underwent bariatric surgery, researchers also found that preoperative mental illness was predictive of greater acute care use, including more ED visits, beginning as soon as 3 months after surgery and persisting through 2 years of follow-up.
