RYGB-induced weight loss alters postprandial FGF21 metabolism

RYGB-induced weight loss alters postprandial FGF21 metabolism
August 18, 2017

Postprandial fibroblast growth factor 21 metabolism is uniquely affected by Roux-en-Y gastric bypass-induced weight loss, according to findings published in The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism.

Samuel Klein, MD, of the Center for Human Nutrition at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, and colleagues evaluated adults with obesity who underwent Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB; n = 16) or laparoscopic adjustable gastric band (LAGB; n = 12) to determine whether weight loss induced by surgery increases postprandial plasma fibroblast growth factor 19 (FGF19) and FGF21 concentrations.
