Study Shows Bariatric Surgery Reduces Incidence of Blood Cancer
Obesity Linked to Increased Cancer Risk
Research published in the international medical magazine ‘Lancet Healthy Longevity’ has revealed that bariatric surgery, such as sleeve gastrectomy or Roux-Y gastric bypass, can significantly reduce the incidence of blood cancer. This is particularly important as obese individuals, especially women, are known to have a higher risk of developing cancer than their non-obese counterparts.
A comparative study was conducted to assess the impact of bariatric surgery on the development of blood cancer. The study compared 2,007 individuals who had undergone bariatric surgery with a control group of 2,040 individuals matched for sex, age, body composition, cardiovascular risk factors, and psychosocial variables, who had not undergone surgery.
Among the group that had bariatric surgery, 34 individuals developed blood cancer, whereas 51 individuals in the non-surgery group were diagnosed with blood cancer. These findings indicate a clear association between bariatric surgery and a reduced incidence of blood cancer.
Specific Benefits for Women and Individuals with High Blood Sugar
Further analysis of the data revealed that bariatric surgery resulted in a 55% reduction in the incidence of lymphoma. Notably, women with high blood sugar levels who underwent bariatric surgery experienced a significant decrease in their risk of developing blood cancer. In addition, metabolic health, including reduced inflammation, improved after bariatric surgery, further supporting the reduction in cancer risk.
Implications and Future Research
The findings of this study conducted at Gothenburg University highlight the potential of bariatric surgery in reducing the incidence of blood cancer. Further research is needed to better understand the underlying mechanisms and to assess the long-term effects of these surgical interventions. Nonetheless, these promising results provide hope for individuals struggling with obesity and the associated heightened cancer risk.
Bariatric surgery can reduce the incidence of blood cancer.
It is known that obese women have a higher risk of developing cancer than obese men and that the risk of developing cancer can be reduced by losing weight, and blood cancer after bariatric surgery such as sleeve gastrectomy or Roux-Y gastric bypass, is according to the international medical magazine ‘Lancet Healthy Longevity’ research results have been published which show that the incidence rate is falling.
When comparing the incidence of blood cancer among 2,007 people who had bariatric surgery and 2,040 people matched for sex, age, body composition, cardiovascular risk factors, and psychosocial variables and who did not have bariatric surgery, the those who had bariatric surgery There were 34 blood cancer patients in the group, and 51 blood cancer patients in the group who did not have bariatric surgery.
In the group that had bariatric surgery, the incidence of lymphoma was reduced by 55% Specifically, when women with high blood sugar levels underwent bariatric surgery, the incidence of blood cancer was significantly reduced, and metabolic health improved, including less of inflammation after bariatric. It can be seen that the risk of developing cancer decreases.
