  Purpose

The overall purpose is to explore the link between the gut and the bones by investigating meal stimulated changes in the blood level of a number of hormones and markers related to intestinal growth and bone turnover in patients undergoing surgery for obesity (gastric bypass). The hormones will be measured in blood samples taken before and after surgery. The results are compared with changes in body weight and body composition as measured by DEXA scanning.
