Background  Bariatric surgery is the most effective long-term treatment for morbid obesity, reducing obesity-associated comorbidities. The purpose of the present study was to evaluate Lys656Asn polymorphism of leptin receptor gene on outcomes 1 year after biliopancreatic diversion. Methods  A sample of 41 morbidly obese patients (body mass index (BMI) > 40 kg/m2) were operated on. Biochemical and anthropometric evaluation were realized at basal visit and at each visit. The frequency of patients with diabetes mellitus, hypertension, and hyperlipidemia was recorded at each visit. Results  Thirty-two patients (78%) had genotype Lys656/Lys656, eight patients (19.5%) Lys656/Asn656 genotype, and one patient (2.4%) Asn656/Asn656 genotype. In the wild-type group, body mass index, weight, glucose, total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, triacylglycerol, and systolic blood pressure decreased. In the mutant group, the same parameters improved. Initial weight percent loss at 1 year of follow-up was higher in mutant group than in wild-type group (38.9% vs 29.9%; p p < 0.05). Basal weight and BMI were higher in mutant group than wild type. Conclusion  Weight loss was higher in mutant group (Lys656Asn and Asn656Asn) than wild-type group (Lys656Lys) after bariatric surgery. Carriers of the allelic variant (Asn) had higher basal weight.
