Abstract

Purpose

The benefit of exercise training on lipid profile in bariatric surgery patients is scarce. We assess the effect of a supervised exercise-training program on lipid profile following bariatric surgery.

Materials and Methods

A total of 60 patients were prospectively recruited, of those 49 completed the study (age 41 ± 11 years; body mass index 45.9 ± 6.1 kg/m2, 75% women). The bariatric surgery procedures performed were sleeve gastrectomy (SG) (n = 24) and biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch (BPD-DS) (n = 25). Of the 49 patients who completed the study, 34 had been randomized to a 12-week supervised exercise training program (exercise group) between the 3rd and the 6th month following bariatric surgery (SG = 17 and BPD-DS = 17). Fasting blood samples and anthropometric measurements were performed preoperatively and at 3, 6, and 12 months after bariatric surgery.

Results

At 6 months and 12 months, percentage of weight loss was similar between groups (6 months: − 29.6 ± 5.5 vs. − 27.8 ± 7.7%; P = 0.371; 12 months: − 38.4 ± 10.4 vs. − 37.9 ± 9.5%; P = 0.876 exercise vs. control). Both groups had an increase in HDL values between the 3nd and the 6th month following bariatric surgery. There was a significantly greater increment in HDL values in the exercise group (0.18 ± 0.14 vs. 0.07 ± 0.12 mmol/L, P = 0.014; exercise vs. control).

Conclusion

Our results showed a beneficial effect of a 12-week supervised exercise-training program in bariatric surgery patients showing similar weight loss on HDL-cholesterol levels without additional effect on LDL-cholesterol levels.
