Figure 1

Changes in body weight, plasma ASP and complement C3 after BPD-DS bariatric surgery occur before changes in BMI. Changes in BMI (a), and plasma levels of ASP (b),and complement C3 (c) before and after BPD-DS surgery at 1 and 5 days (d), 6 and 12 months (m) are presented for non-diabetic (n=32) and diabetic (n=22) women. Significance was determined by one-way repeated measures ANOVA following by Holm–Sidak post-hoc test. Values are presented as mean±s.e.m., where *P<0.05, **P<0.01 and ***P<0.001 vs baseline, and δindicates significance vs 1 day, £significance vs 5 days and ϕsignificance vs 6 months.
