Bariatric surgery patients have higher fracture rates before and after surgery.


Obesity and osteoporosis are clearly linked – inflammation is a part of both. Add in poorer balance and that means more falls.

Bariatric surgery does not mean good nutrition and over a period of years (in this study) along comes higher fracture rates than people that did not have surgery.

I remain concerned that bariatric surgery is surgery on a ‘normal’ part of one’s anatomy. It doesn’t matter which type of procedure is being considered. It is surgery on a ‘normal’ organ.

A lot of patients can avoid this surgery by trying LCHF with good support and avoid having their ‘normal’ anatomy made ‘abnormal’. 🙁
