    Background: Exercise performance and pulmonary function are often impaired in severely obese subjects. Bariatric surgery represents the most effective therapy for severe obesity, but data on changes in exercise performance after massive weight loss induced by bariatric surgery have rarely been...

    A dual radioisotope technique was used to measure gastric emptying of a mixed solid and liquid meal in 30 obese (>125% of ideal body weight) subjects and 23 age- and sex-matched nonobese control subjects. Gastroduodenal motility studies were also performed on seven obese and 10 nonobese subjects...

    This study investigated stigma directed at formerly obese persons who lost weight and became lean (through behavioral or surgical methods), or lost weight but remained obese, relative to weight-stable obese and weight-stable lean persons. This study also compared stigma directed at obese persons...

    Purpose. Abnormal water excretion after ingestion of a water load has been described in obesity. We hypothesized that AVP secretion is abnormal in obese subjects in acute hypo- and hyperosmolality and that the hormone leptin is partly responsible for this. Methods. We studied the relation...

    Introduction: obesity impacts on respiratory function and also it acts as a risk factor for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Aims: to study the effects of bariatric surgery on pulmonary function tests and on OSA in morbidly obese women over 4 years. Methods: fifteen morbidly obese women (mean body...

    Background: Although Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) is an effective and widely used therapy for severe obesity, the mechanisms by which it induces weight loss are not well understood. Several studies have shown that RYGB in human patients causes a decrease in circulating levels of...

    Background: We investigate whether in severely obese people a marked weight loss may influence individual postural control and motor activities and then reverse the alterations caused by the extra load of body mass. Recent studies have shown that most severely obese patients have various degrees...
