Obesity

Premier Health providers answer frequently asked questions about obesity.

What are the hormone changes you experience after weight loss surgery?

Weight loss surgery not only leads to physical changes. It also changes your internal physiology, which includes a change in your hormones.

Your intestinal hormones change in a way that they make you less hungry and help you feel fuller, according to the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric SurgeryOff Site Icon (ASMBS).

After the changes take place, the end result is that you have less of a desire to eat, and you eat less often.

For more information about hormonal changes you experience after weight loss surgery, talk with your doctor.
