Improving glucose metabolism beyond the effects of bariatric surgery by standardized postoperative exercise programs (Prof. Dr. med. Arne Dietrich)

In this clinical study researchers will compare the effects of supervised resistance vs. endurance training on glucose metabolism, insulin sensitivity and on the basic metabolic rate in patients after bariatric surgery (Roux-Y-Gastric Bypass). It will be scrutinized, how much different trainings additionally support the positive effect of bariatric surgery on glucose metabolism. Study results can contribute to an improved postoperative therapy after bariatric surgery.

This research project has been approved by the Ethics Committee of the Faculty of Medicine of the Universität Leipzig (363-11-07032011). The project is recorded in the German Clinical Trial Register (DRKS) with the number DRKS00004160.

Duration: 01.05.2012 - 31.03.2015
