Outcomes of Bariatric Surgery
Bariatric Surgery is now recognized as a very successful way for reducing body weight and many of the metabolic comorbidities associated with obesity. This selection of articles from the last 2 years reviews the outcomes of surgery on weight reduction, type 2 diabetes and other comorbidities as well as contrasting the effectiveness of differing surgical approaches.

Childhood obesity: From genetics, epigenetics and prevention to management
The increasing prevalence of childhood obesity is a matter of concern for all. The causes, consequences, and evidence-based interventions for prevention are very complex and not completely understood, and a comprehensive body of ongoing research is being published every year, so it can be difficult to keep abreast of the current state of the art. Obesity Reviews regularly publishes updated reviews on these important issues, and here we share with you some of the best reviews on this topic.
