Purpose of review The aim of the article is to review studies on bone health and oxalate metabolism/therapeutics in the obese rodent model of Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) and examine pathways to decrease procedural morbidity.

These unabsorbed intestinal fatty acids bind calcium and prevent gut calcium oxalate formation, increasing soluble luminal oxalate availability and absorption (enteric hyperoxaluria). When intraluminal fecal fat exceeded about 1...

Conclusions: The prevalence of childhood hypertension is significant in the Southwest of China and alarming in rural areas, which requires community intervention. Children living in rural areas combined with obesity, low social economic status, dietary imbalance, and abnormal lipid metabolism were associated with an increased risk of hypertension, and routine care programs should be conducted to prevent childhood hypertension.

Authors: Pilone V, Tramontano S, Cutolo C, Marchese F, Pagano AM, Di Spirito F, Schiavo L Abstract We aim to assess the prevalence of vitamin D deficiency (VDD) in patients scheduled for bariatric surgery (BS), and to identify factors that might be associated with VDD. We conducted a cross-sectional observational study involving all consecutive patients scheduled for BS from 2017 to 2019. The exclusion criteria were missing data for vitamin D levels, intake of vitamin D supplements in the 3 months prior to serum vitamin D determination, and renal insufficiency.
