Abstract

Major updates to 1991 National Institutes of Health guidelines for bariatric surgery • Metabolic and bariatric surgery (MBS) is recommended for individuals with a body mass index (BMI) ≥35 kg/m2, regardless of presence, absence, or severity of co-morbidities. • MBS should be considered for individuals with metabolic disease and BMI of 30-34.9 kg/m2. • BMI thresholds should be adjusted in the Asian population such that a BMI ≥25 kg/m2 suggests clinical obesity, and individuals with BMI ≥27.5 kg/m2 should be offered MBS. • Long-term results of MBS consistently demonstrate safety and efficacy. • Appropriately selected children and adolescents should be considered for MBS.
