Join us for a discussion of the most recent research on the causes of improved energy balance and long-term weight loss after bariatric surgery. Investigate the literature to understand the metabolic impact of bariatric surgery on the physiology of obesity, including changes in the gut microbiota, bile acids and other hormonal pathways, and how this leads to improvement of diabetes and other metabolic disorders.
Explore how environmental factors and diet choices influence the body's internal physiology and the clinical outcomes of post-operative patients and how a healthy lifestyle works to promote lasting success. Learn to apply the implications of this new understanding to lifestyle- and medication-based management of obesity.
Interactive case studies will allow attendees to expand beyond the traditional thinking of weight regulation and to incorporate the new paradigm into their everyday practice.
