Washington: The last few meals that a person consumes before a surgery could make a difference in the recovery, a study has found.Fat tissue, which is one of the most dominant components that make up the body, are always traumatized during major surgery.Researchers at Brigham and Women`s Hospital (BWH) found that this trauma impacts the chemical balance of fat tissue-chemicals known to communicate with nearby and distant organs.In the study, mice that consumed a typical Western, high-fat diet showed an exaggerated imbalanced response.Importantly, limiting food intake to a lower-fat diet just a few weeks before surgery reduced the imbalance back toward a more normal response.Senior study author C. Keith Ozaki, MD, Director of BWH Vascular Surgery Research, and colleagues measured how fat responds to surgery and whether restricting calorie intake before surgery changed how the fat tissue responded to typical trauma that usually occurs during an operation.
