Bariatric Surgery: Microbiome & Diabetes

Bariatric Surgery: Microbiome & Diabetes

This study is a prospective cohort study, following 80 morbidly obese patients undergoing bariatric surgery, specifically Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB). The investigators are measuring intestinal microbiota (IM) and oral microbiota (OM) at the beginning before any treatment, at the time of surgery, which is after a very low calorie standard diet, and 1 and 6 months after surgery. The investigators assess whether changes in IM are related to changes in insulin resistance (IR), other features of the metabolic syndrome (MetS) and OM.
