The article describes a study that analyzed the effects of bariatric surgery on plasma satiety factors such as leptin, ghrelin, and apolipoprotein. Results revealed higher values of leptin and lower levels of ghrelin levels in the morbidly obese group than in normal weight person while apolipoprotein levels were the same in both groups. The study suggests that during weight loss, plasma leptin and ghrelin could be good markers of weight loss while apolipoprotein indicate recovery of gastric function.
