Abstract: Bariatric surgery has increasingly been applied for patients with severe obesity. By dramati- cally reducing body weight and producing favorable effects on disorders in endocrine metabolism, bariatric surgery has shown to be able to lower the overall mortality. However, this intervention involves a profound change in digestive physiology and may cause nutrition and endocrinal metabolism-related severe complications, which mainly result from the deficiency or unbalance of macronutrients and micronutrients. Therefore, it is necessary to establish a fixed management procedure which includes routine perioperative nutritional consultation, regular monitoring, and early preventive nutritional support, so as to prevent metabolic complications and achieve better outcomes.

Key words: bariatric surgery, metabolic, complication, nutrition
