Weight-Loss Surgery for Teens May Be Gaining Advocates
Date:10/8/2010

eople. Certain foods are restricted or completely banned, and dietary supplements become essential to make sure the person receives sufficient nutrients, vitamins and minerals. If the kids aren't capable of meeting these requirements or do not have parents to help them by buying the right foods and making sure they eat them, then the surgery should not be undertaken, they said.

Laffel stressed that prevention and lifestyle choices should properly remain the first line of treatment when it comes to teen obesity.

"You want maintaining a healthy weight to become an effort for life," Laffel said, noting that kids who undergo bariatric surgery might not understand the amount of healthy eating and exercise that will be needed to keep off the weight they shed.

At the same time, there's no denying that weight-loss surgery can help kids who are otherwise doomed to a lifetime of obesity and chronic illness, she said.

"There's no question this gives you a remarkable jump-start," Laffel said. "As the procedures get simple and safer, I think this will be more often considered."
