(Reuters Health) - Obese women who have weight-loss surgery between pregnancies may be less likely to experience complications like high blood pressure and preterm births in their second pregnancy, a recent study suggests.

Researchers examined hospital records from 2002 to 2014 for more than 1.6 million women 15 to 45 years old in New South Wales, Australia. The study focused on 326 women who had bariatric surgery between their first and second pregnancies and 461,917 women who had two pregnancies without a weight-loss operation in between.

The study found that for obese women who had the surgery between pregnancies, the risk of complications dropped markedly from the first pregnancy to the second, although it didnt reach the level seen in the general population of women.

The odds of adverse pregnancy outcomes among women who have bariatric surgery do not decrease to the level observed in the general birthing population; however, there was substantial improvement, lead study author Dr. I Ibiebele of Royal North Shore Hospital in New South Wales and colleagues write in BJOG.

Although body mass index (BMI) was not directly assessed in this study, bariatric surgery performed for the management of obesity, in accordance with current clinical criteria, is likely to result in improved pregnancy outcomes in women who have a subsequent pregnancy, Ibiebele and colleagues write.

During the study period, there was a 13-fold increase in hospitalizations for women having bariatric surgery for the first time, the analysis found.

Compared with women in the general population, those who had bariatric surgery had higher rates of high blood pressure, diabetes and preterm deliveries overall.

But women who had bariatric surgery between their first and second pregnancies were 61% less likely to experience high blood pressure, 37% less likely to have infants that were large for their gestational age, 63% less likely to have a preemie and 36% less likely to have their baby sent to the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) than in their first pregnancies.

Women who had surgery and those in the general population were around the same age when they had their first pregnancy. But the women who had bariatric surgery waited an average of two years longer to have their second child, the study found.

The women who had bariatric surgeries between pregnancies were also more likely to use assistive reproductive technology (ART) to conceive and to have multiples.

Even though diabetes and high blood pressure rates were higher for women who had bariatric surgery between pregnancies, these women did have a bigger drop in the risk of these complications from one pregnancy to the next compared to the general population.

After bariatric surgery, womens risk of high blood pressure in the second pregnancy fell by 67%, compared with a 49% reduction for women who didnt have the weight loss procedures.

And the risk of gestational diabetes, a form of diabetes that develops during pregnancy, dropped by 39% in second pregnancies for women who had bariatric surgery, compared with a 24% decline for women who didnt have surgery. This difference, however, was too small to rule out the possibility that it was due to chance.

Although preterm birth rates were higher in the bariatric group in first pregnancies, in second pregnancies there was a 63% reduction in the odds of preterm birth in the bariatric surgery group compared with a 20% reduction for women who didnt have surgery.

For women who had bariatric surgery between pregnancies, the odds of having an infant large for its gestational age were higher in the first pregnancy. But the risk of this outcome decreased 37% in the second pregnancy, compared with a 74% increase among women who didnt have bariatric surgery.

The study wasnt designed to prove whether or how weight loss surgery might directly impact pregnancy outcomes.

One limitation of the analysis is that researchers lacked BMI data to see if the magnitude of weight change between pregnancies might have influenced the risk of various complications.

Anthony Joshua weighed in more than three stones lighter than world heavyweight champion Andy Ruiz Jr ahead of their title rematch in Saudi Arabia.

Joshua hit the scales at 16 stones and 13 pounds (107.5kg), the former champion's lightest ever weight for a world title fight, at the Diriyah venue near the capital Riyadh on Friday.

Mexican-American Ruiz, wearing a sombrero and stepping up after Joshua, was 20 stones and three pounds (128.3kg), heavier than he was in the first showdown between the two at New York's Madison Square Garden in June.

The pair then shared a handshake in their final face to face meeting before the fight.

Ruiz clambered into the ring at 19 stone and two pounds last time, when he came in at short notice and dethroned the previously undefeated Joshua with a seventh round stoppage in one of boxing's biggest upsets.

Joshua was 17 stone nine pounds for that New York fight which has left him facing a make-or-break bout to reclaim the belts and maintain the dream of a unified title despite initially dismissing it all as a "minor setback".

Saturday's WBA, IBF and WBO heavyweight title rematch has been billed the 'Clash on the Dunes' by promoters eager to accept the highly lucrative if also controversial Saudi invitation.

The WBC title is held by American Deontay Wilder , who is due to fight a rematch with Britain's undefeated Tyson Fury in February after a draw between them in December 2018.

"I feel good. The weigh-in is important but as heavyweights it don't really matter... skills pay the bills," Joshua said.

"He's a big lad, they should make a super-heavyweight division," added Joshua of Ruiz, who will be hoping to use his weight as a weapon against the more athletic and chiselled challenger.

"The art of the game is to hit and not get hit, and avoid those punches... I'll definitely be beating him to the punch."

Ruiz, who had talked in the run-up about losing weight but has been hungry for more than just success on Friday's evidence, has suggested Joshua could regret shedding the pounds when the going gets tough.

THE rivalry between Conor McGregor and old foe Jose Aldo may be a thing of the past if recent tweets by the Crumlin fighter are anything to go by.

McGregor's stardom grew exponentially after his emphatic featherweight win against the Brazilian back in 2015 when the bout ended in just 13 seconds in one of the most iconic moments in the sport's history.

1

Up to that point things had got heated between the two as they went on a press tour around the globe including stops in Brazil and Ireland.

But the bad feelings between the two may be a thing of the past.

Aldo has lost three times since then, including twice to Max Holloway, and has decided to drop weight to become a bantamweight.

Posting on Twitter, renowned MMA journalist Ariel Helwani was raised his concerns about Aldo's weight cut.

He said: "The first one [picture of Aldo] is very troubling. Still dont understand why Aldo is doing this."

It was met with a reply from the Irish fighter who supported his one time opponent. McGregor said: "I disagree here.

"He looks more than on top of it in my experienced opinion.

"Well trimmed in advance, and naturally a lighter man now.

"This can only be done over a long length of time and with complete dedication. Respect! I wish him well and am excited to see him in this division."

Helwani replied to the fighter, saying: "Fair enough. Respect. But, was it truly necessary at this stage in his career?

"What can be gained from a cut like this at this point? Prior to his last fight, a loss to the man who is fighting for the belt next week, he looked great in two straight wins/finishes."

McGregor could not let Helwani have the last word.

He said: "The rejuvenation of your career with fresh goals and targets!

"The prestige of being a UFC World champion in two weight divisions!

"The feeling of excitement you will give the fans with all the new potential match-ups that can be made!

"All great and valid reasons! Enjoy."

McGregor himself is set to return to action on January 18 in a welterweight fight against Donald Cerrone in Las Vegas with the fight set to main event UFC 246, although the bout has not been officially confirmed.

After beginning aweight loss journeyat 90 pounds, Wolfgang the beagle is all the #healthgoals we need this holiday season.

Erin McManus began fostering the overweight dog and didn't want to give the adorable guy up, so she decided to adopt him and help him lose the weight.

Wolfgang's goal weight? 25 pounds.

He's losing about a pound a week, McManus told InsideEdition.com. Knowing that it was going to be a journey with him was a big reason why we did adopt them. He's just such a nice dog. Hard to say no to that face.

To stay on the weight loss train and shed pounds, Wolfgang is now on a 600-calorie diet.

I make his own food. It's lean turkey as the base, lots of vegetables, and some supplements, McManus said.

He swims in the pool now, goes on walks, and even exercises on a water treadmill weekly.

He takes his toy with them. He always has a toy, McManus said. "We don't know why he likes to work out with a toy, but I guess most people like working out with a friend, so I think he thinks the toys are his workout buddies.

While McManus said she doesnt know much about Wolfgangs previous life, she said he has a minor thyroid problem that he is now on medication for.

McManus created an Instagramaccount for Wolfgang, which has already racked up 37,000 followers. So Wolfgang has all the support he needs. The dog mom said she definitely wasnt expecting all of the attention.

I was expecting maybe my mom would follow on Instagram, and maybe one or two other people. But you know, I mean, his personality I think, shines through, McManus said. Everyone likes feeling encouraged. And a morbidly obese dog trying to get fit, I think has encouraged a lot of people. I know he encourages us.

What probiotics can also do is induce satiety in your diet. This is one thing many do not know. Certain probiotics which have Bifidobacterium in them release an essential hormone, GLP-1, which works as an appetite suppressant, makes you feel fuller for longer and burn those calories. Bifidobacterium is believed to help us digest fiber and other tough carbs that our body cant digest on its own.

In fact, they can also help prevent further weight gain, after you have reached that weight loss plateau. Hence, including probiotics in the diet can help manage obesity. However, as tough as it sounds, sourcing them is not that difficult. For optimum weight loss and results, try adding these four food types:

Robbie Williams originally found fame as a member of the English pop group, Take That from 1989 to 1995, however, he achieved greater commercial success with his solo career, beginning in 1997. Robbie is a highly beloved British singer and has been a constant presence in British culture throughout the last 20 decades. Recently, the singer-songwriter has made an admission that he has struggled with a relentless weight battle for several years and admitted that to overhaul his lifestyle and improve his health and diet he cut out one thing to trim down. What did he cut out?

Appearing on the WW, Weight Watchers reimagined, Wellness that Works podcast Robbie speaks about his weight loss and wellness journey since joining the programme.

Robbie Williams is a WW ambassador and is currently on the new myWW programme - its most customised weight-loss programme ever.

The WW Wellness that Works podcast is a fun and motivational podcast for anyone who wants to build healthy habits whether that means eating better, moving more, shifting your mindset or all of the above.

What did Robbie Williams have to say about weight loss?

During the episode the ever-entertaining singer and showman, opens up about how his previous relationship with food had affected his mental health, with Robbie commenting that: I found that normally my history is being overweight and being dreadfully unhappy and then counteracting that with extreme measures and being depressed because there are no nutrients in my body.

Talking about why he became a part of the WW family Robbie said: There is this relentless weight battle and weight issue that Ive had forever.

WW phoned up and said hey, we want you to be really healthy and have a clean head, and feel good about yourself!.

DON'T MISS

The universe spoke and I listened to it, and I was like, yes, please let me get on this. And I started boxing. That was great for my mind.

Since becoming a WW ambassador, Robbies relationship with food and exercise has changed: Im golfing a lot and Im in nature. And its three hours of walking and its meditative because all youre thinking about is that next shot and it takes you out of yourself.

Like boxing does. You know, you go boxing and its so hard but so enjoyable.

And then I saw on a podcast somebody would say, if you dont work out, its the equivalent of taking a depressant pill instead of an antidepressant. If you dont work out and dont do something you're taking a depressant pill.

Robbie credits WW for how well hes feeling at the moment saying that: Its helping me tremendously.

Ive changed my life. Im loving being a daddy. Loving the WW, loving - the wife.

Yeah all is good. There is a confidence thats coming with the WW programme.

So, what was one of the main things that Robbie cut out to lose weight and overhaul his lifestyle?

Robbie revealed during the podcast that he gave up smoking to overhaul his diet after he became worried about having an early death.

He revealed: The most recent thing that triggered this whole [weight gain] thing was I relapsed on smoking.

So when I smoke, I'm half-smoke, half-man. I'm a man of extremes. And the wife said, 'You got to give up smoking'.

I didn't want to do the death, the early death. So I was like, yeah, OK.

And I just thought, hang on, maybe I can just view this differently. This whole process, not only could I give up smoking, but I could be fit and healthy and have a clean head and a clean vision of how I want my future.

And I found that moment to be very, very powerful.
