Loosing weight via a gastric bypass surgery seems to be the easiest and quickest solution for people who wish to fix their obesity problems.
However, this surgery might affect the functioning of the other vital body parts such as your ability to taste.
In the study led by a research team from Leicester Royal Infirmary, it was confirmed that this type of surgery can affect a person’s taste buds adversely.
The study conducted also involved questioning 103 people who had previously experienced this surgery. The questionnaire comprised of 33 questions regarding taste, smell and appetite.
All the survey members had experienced a gastric surgery at the University Hospitals of Leicester during 2000 and 2011.
Lisa Graham, the lead researcher, said that “this study indicates that subjective changes in appetite, taste and smell are very common after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass.”
The outcomes of this study were published in Obesity Surgery with the title: Taste, Smell and Appetite Change After Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass Surgery.
