The relationship of quality of life of patients, body weight and comorbidities in different periods after surgical treatment of morbid obesity


The main goal of any surgical intervention in morbid obesity is to improve the quality of life of patients which is considered directly related to the loss of excess body weight and a reduction in the incidence of related diseases. The aim of this study was to determine the interdependence of these indicators. In 2005-2013 we performed 457 operations of gastric banding (GB) and 198 - gastric bypass (GBP). After GB only body mass index (BMI) and quality of life index (QOL) had significant linear correlation, i.e., the higher the weight of the patient, the worse the quality of life. After GBP there was is a significant linear relationship only between the patient's body weight and dynamics of comorbidities, i.e. the higher the weight of the patient, the higher the level of comorbidity. The QOL of patients after GBP does not depend on the body weight or on the frequency of comorbidities.
