[Psychiatric disorders and bariatric surgery]

Abstract : PSYCHIATRIC DISORDERS AND BARIATRIC SURGERY Psychiatric disorders are common in people with obesity and their lifetime prevalence is estimated to range from 30 % to 70 %. The most frequently reported disorders are mood and anxiety disorders, attention deficit disorder, and binge eating disorder. These disorders will usually improve after bariatric surgery and do not appear to have a significant negative impact on weight loss. However, increased attention is needed regarding some aspects of these disorders (e. G., emotional dysregulation, impulsivity) as well as regarding the increased risk of developing a substance abuse disorder or increased suicide risk after bariatric surgery. As well as a high quality pre-operative psychiatric assessment is required, post-operative psychiatric follow-up is required.
