Hair Loss and Obesity; our hair has several growth phases. The main gene, growth phase of the hair, is normally %90 percent of the time. Telogen the passive phase of the hair growth is %10 percent takes of the time. Switching from one phase to another takes 120 days. Although infection, chronic disease, surgeries, high fever, shock diets, protein deficiency, anemia or zinc deficiency, drug use, hormonal problems keeps the hair in the “Telegon” phase which causes hair loss. Hair loss after gastric surgery is that this process is completely temporary. If there are no serious nutritional problems, hair loss usually begins between 3-6 months and usually stops after 6 months. The type of the surgery, like bypass surgery methods may be a little more likely to cause hair loss if it is a kind of inhibition of vitamin mineral absorption. Generally new hair starts to grow in 12-18 months and there is almost no hair loss anymore. First you have to trough the Telogen phase. Patients who have undergone obesity surgery are the most effective preventive measure to strictly follow the nutritional rules given by the surgeons and dieticians and to use vitamins. Food problems and vitamin deficiencies may aggravate the situation.
Overweight and obesity are major risk factors for a number of chronic diseases, including diabetes, cardiovascular diseases and cancer. Once considered a problem only in high-income countries, overweight and obesity are now dramatically on the rise in low- and middle-income countries, particularly in urban settings.
Obesity is classified as having a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 30 or greater. BMI is a tool used to measure obesity. Obesity increases your risk of developing related conditions such as diabetes, hypertension and sleep apnea, to name a few. Many individuals are affected by obesity and are not aware of it.
Recent research indicates that each bariatric surgery works not only through the anatomical and mechanical changes from the procedure itself, but metabolic changes in the “gut hormones.” Numerous studies have examined pre-operative and post-operative gut hormone levels after bariatric surgery. A brief summary of hormonal changes after each bariatric procedure is provided in the next sections. Some of these hormones are: “GHRELIN” functions primarily to stimulate appetite.
