Abstract

Reductions in plasma endocannabinoids following bariatric surgery in morbidly obese females with impaired glucose homeostasis: A non-randomized prospective study • Endocannabinoids (ECs) are bioactive lipid mediators − N-arachidonyl ethanolamine (AEA) − N-palmitoyl ethanolamine (PEA) − N-oleoyl ethanolamine (OEA) − related N-acylethanolamine (NAE) derivatives − 2-arachidonyl glycerol (2-AG) • Endocannabinoid system (ECS) plays a critical role in regulation of body weight and may have a role in aetiopathogenesis of Type 2 Diabetes (T2DM) • Elevated circulating levels of AEA and 2-AG in obese people compared to non-obese controls of both genders • Little information available on the effects of extreme weight loss associated with bariatric surgery in relation to the ECS.
