If you’re obese, weight loss surgery is one
way to drop pounds quickly and improve heart health. And now, new research suggests bariatric
surgery may also improve kidney function. I’m Rachelle Grossman with your latest health
news. New research shows the kidney function of an average weight loss surgery patient
– with and without kidney disease – is positively improved. Experts say people who are morbidly
obese face a higher risk of kidney failure. Weight loss surgery patients with chronic
kidney disease prior to surgery see the most benefit. You can always ask your doctor if
weight loss surgery is right for you.
