Introduction: Since the Adoption of Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy (LSG) as a primary procedure in Bariatric surgery, many studies have shown the beneficial metabolic effects on morbidly obese patients. In this study, we analyze the effect of LSG on Lipid profile at one year in both Morbidly Obese (MO) and Morbidly Obese Diabetic (MOD) patients in comparison with lean and diabetic lean control.
Method: Between January 2012 and july 2014, 23 MO and 17 MOD patients underwent LSG with 19 Lean Diabetic and 15 Lean Subjects as control. Sample were collected for Total Cholesterol, LDL, HDL cholesterol and Triglycerides (TG) preoperatively then at 7, 15,30,60,90,180 and 360 days postoperatively
Results: Preoperative BMI, Gender and age were similar in both MO and MOD patients. At one year, both groups have similar EBWL. TG preoperatively was significantly elevated in MOD and MO in comparison with Lean Control. At one year, TG significantly reduced both MOD and MO.HDL cholesterol was significantly low in MOD compared with MO and Lean (0.01, and 0.0001 respectively). At one year, HDL cholesterol was significantly increased in both MOD and MO patients. Preoperatively, no significant difference in LDL and total cholesterol in all four groups. No changes found at one year postoperatively in total and LDL cholesterol in MOD and MO patients
Conclusion: LSG showed significant improvement in HDL cholesterol and TG in MOD and MO patients at one year. NO similar changes were found in total cholesterol and LDL.
