How Higher Thyroid Hormone Levels Promote Weight Loss After Bariatric Surgery

Weight loss is more prominent after bariatric surgery, in patients who have higher levels of the thyroid hormone triiodothyronine (T3). If obese patients fail to lose weight through diet and exercise, bariatric surgery is the best option. There are many types of bariatric surgery. Some surgeries limit the amount of food taken, while others affect the digestion and absorption of food.
