    People who underwent weight loss surgery were 58 percent more likely to die from "death not caused by disease, such as accidents and suicide" during an average follow-up of 7.1 years according to a study from researchers at the University of Utah School of Medicine in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA. Conclusion

    Conclusion: Weight loss surgery lowers death from diabetes, heart disease and cancer, but increases death from other causes

    “Long-term total mortality after gastric bypass surgery was significantly reduced, particularly deaths from diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. However, the rate of death from causes other than disease was higher in the surgery group than in the control group,” the researchers concluded.



    Subjects: 7925 surgery patients matched against 7925 severely obese controls

    The study analyzed data from 7925 people who had undergone surgery between 1984 and 2002, and they were matched for age, sex and body mass index with 7925 severely obese people who applied for a driver’s license who acted as controls.
