NAFLD prevalent in adolescents undergoing bariatric surgery

September 4, 2015

In the Teen-Longitudinal Assessment of Bariatric Surgery study, researchers found that more than half of obese adolescents undergoing bariatric surgery had nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, according to published findings in Gastroenterology.

“Severe obesity is highly prevalent among children and adolescents with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease in the United States. … The Teen-Longitudinal Assessment of Bariatric Surgery (Teen-LABS) study, a prospective observational longitudinal cohort study of 242 adolescents undergoing bariatric surgery at five tertiary care centers in the United States, offers the opportunity to determine the biopsy-confirmed prevalence and determinants of NAFLD in a larger multicenter cohort of severely obese adolescents,” the researchers wrote.
