Balancing Activity Levels with Food 1.One small chocolate chip cookie (50 calories) is equivalent to walking briskly for 10 minutes. 2.The difference between a large gourmet chocolate chip cookie and a small chocolate chip cookie could be about 40 minutes of raking leaves (200 calories). 3.One hour of walking at a moderate pace (20 min/mile) uses about the same amount of energy that is in one jelly filled doughnut (300 calories). 4.A fast food "meal" containing a double patty cheeseburger, extra-large fries and a 24 oz. soft drink is equal to running 2½ hours at a 10 min/mile pace (1500 calories). 5.One tsp sugar (20cal) 4 min walk 6.One can coke (160cal) 30 min walk Physical ActivityCalories Burnt / 30 minutes Walking 2mph85 Walking 4mph170 Gardening135 Raking leaves145 Dancing190 Bicycling 10mph205 Swimming laps, medium level240 5mph275

Impact of Obesity on GP Consultations BMI Percentage Brown WJ et al. Int J Obes 1998;22: Low BMI was associated with fewer physical health problems than mid-level or higher BMI. Indicators of health care use showed a J-shaped relationship with BMI for general practitioners (>5 GP Consultations). Prevalence of medical problems (for example, hypertension OR 6x and diabetes OR 6x), surgical procedures (cholecystectomy OR 7x and hysterectomy OR 2x) and symptoms (for example, back pain OR 40% and constant tiredness OR 70%) increased monotonically with BMI.
Effect of Diet and Surgery on Weight & Mortality Diet & exercise effective up to 6m 60% failure at 1 yr. 80% failure at 2 yrs. 100% failure at 5 yrs. Surgery effective long-term (80%) Effects of Bariatric Surgery on Mortality in Swedish Obese Subjects N Engl J Med 2007;357:
High Risk Low efficacy – less durable weight loss High efficacy – durable weight lossEffective but unacceptable risk Low Risk Primary Obesity Options Today Diet/ Drugs Surgery Endolumenal Obesity Moderate risk / efficacy – intermediate durability Abandoned Surgery Lap Band Gastric Balloon POSE Endosheath Less Effective More Effective Sleeve Gastrectomy Gastric Bypass BPD/DS VBG Jejuno-Ileal Bypass 20-60% 40-95%
Referral - Minimal Dataset Age Weight & BMI Co-morbidity esp. cardiovascular respiratory endocrine GI and musculo-skeletal Medication Previous attempts at weight loss Other concerns like Untreated eating disorders Psychiatric history NICE: BMI35 ASMBS: BMI30 Asians: BMI 2 points lower
Pre-operative Special Considerations Hypertension control ACE Inhibitors AT2 receptor antagonists Glycaemic control Oral hyperglycaemic agents Insulin Anticoagulation Warfarin Clopidogrel Aspirin OSA CPAP GORD PPI NAFLD / NASH Liver shrinkage diet
Post-operative Regime Liquids only for 2-3 weeks Soft blended food for 2-3 weeks Resume solids after 4-6 weeks Small mouthfuls Chew well Eat slowly Separate eating and drinking by ½ hour Avoid fizzy / sugary drinks or sugary food Medication – liquid / soluble (crushed) Supplements Iron Calcium and vitamin D Vitamin B12 Folic acid Vitamin B1 Recommended Multivitamin and minerals: Chewable versions: Bassetts Adult Chewable multivitamins with prebiotics & minerals Wellkid Smart / Sanatogen A-Z Kids Chewable Haliborange Chewable multivitamins Whole tablet: Sanatogen Gold or Centrum (after 3 months) Plus Chewable Calcium – 1000mg calcium /day Liquid iron or iron drops - 50mg of iron/day
Post-operative – Suitable Fluids D0-W2 Milk - Aim for at least two pints (1.2L) of milk or a milk alternative a day Milk can be flavoured with Nesquick or low calorie hot chocolate Slimming drinks e.g. Slimfast or chemist/supermarket own brand Complan or Build-up shakes or soups Yogurt drinks and smoothies Still mineral water, if taking the flavoured types make sure they are low sugar Still low-sugar squashes Smooth soups e.g. cream of tomato or chicken; or oxtail Tea and coffee without sugar Unsweetened pure fruit juice
Post-operative Special Considerations Diet Not allowed to eat and drink together Eat slowly, chew well – at least minutes Liquids for 24-48hours after band adjustment Return to work Change in medications Restrictions on tablets – soluble, liquids or crushed tablets Change in co-morbidity Antihypertensive Oral hyperglycaemic agents Insulin Change in absorption Warfarin Oral contraceptives Avoid pregnancy for 18 months Risk to mother Risk to foetus

Take Home Message Bariatric surgery is a cost-effective treatment for obesity which leads to resolution of co-morbidities, improved quality of life and increased life expectancy However, patients need lifelong follow-up after surgery in order to avoid harm – this can be performed by their surgical team and by the primary care. Patients can present with nausea, vomiting, dysphagia, reflux, abdominal pain and neurological symptoms. Common things are common! Nutritional deficiencies are common and easily preventable.
