Weight Loss Surgery Research on Gout Underlines the Many Benefits of Bariatric Procedures, says Beverly Hills Physicians
Date:9/24/2018

A September 14 interview with two noted experts in the field of rheumatology and weight loss surgery discusses the current data regarding the impact of weight loss surgery on gout. Gout is a common and particularly painful form of arthritis that is frequently associated with weight issues. Sufferers typically suffer excruciating flare-ups that are often triggered by particular foods that are rich in uric acid, the cause of the inflammation behind the condition. The experts’ medical verdict regarding bariatric surgery and the condition is clear, “Bariatric surgery reduces the incidence of gout, primarily through weight reduction and decreased inflammatory response.” However, they do note that flare-ups of gout are a possibility shortly after surgeries. Los Angeles based health and beauty clinic Beverly Hills Physicians says that, considering the number of conditions that can be effectively dealt with by eliminating obesity, it’s not surprising that this particular condition can be eliminated or greatly lessened with the help of the procedure.

The clinic notes that, to understand just why bariatric surgery is now being frequently recommended by physicians, it’s important to understand how and why a procedure like a sleeve gastrectomy works. Most individuals who are severely obese are highly motivated to lose weight, particularly if serious health problems are on the horizon. However, says Beverly Hills Physicians, while many patients are able to lose impressive amounts early on, over time, the tendency is to regain the weight, often with some additional pounds added. Most weight loss experts now theorize that a primary reason for this well-known phenomenon comes down to hormones. The clinic notes that it appears that most people with weight issues produce a higher amount of substances like ghrelin that are associated with feelings of hunger and appetite. Worse, when individuals start to lose weight, the body goes into a kind of pre-starvation mode and production of hunger hormones increases greatly. Thus, defeating obesity is no mere matter of self-control; no matter how well motivated, most people simply can’t ignore the nagging hormonal cravings the body generates.

Beverly Hills Physicians says that surgeries like the gastric sleeve get at the root of obesity by working in two different ways. Removing a large portion of the stomach and leaving a sleeve-like pouch, makes overeating difficult and unpleasant, as you would expect. However, since hunger hormones appear to be produced in certain areas of the stomach, surgeries that reduce the size of the stomach can also greatly reduce the production of hunger hormones. Thus, patients are able to focus on changing their dietary habits without the constant sensations that are indistinguishable from actual hunger and that make life extremely difficult for people who are trying to significantly reduce their caloric intake.
