A BMI of 30-35 is considered a low BMI
Why the Study?
The current bariatric surgery guidelines that determine a patient’s qualification were established in 1991. The low BMI study is designed to document the benefits of bariatric surgery and the necessity for procedures like gastric bypass and gastric sleeve to be available to a range of patients in the hopes of improving and/or resolving their long-term obesity-related illnesses such as diabetes and hypertension.
