Another benefit to bariatric surgery

Bariatric surgery has been shown to provide yet another health benefit for obese patients, along with lower risk of type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and cancer.

The surgery also prevents gout and hyperuricaemia, say Swedish researchers.

Their study found the incidence of gout was 34% lower in those who had surgery, compared with controls, after up to 26 years of follow up.
