Researchers say obese patients who had suffered painful and debilitating migraines before bariatric surgery reported improvements in headache frequency, severity and disability just six months after surgery. At that time, most patients had lost an average of 66.4 pounds. "Obesity is believed to bring about worsening of migraine, particularly for severely obese individuals, yet no study has examined whether weight reduction can in fact improve migraines during these patients," said lead author Dale Bond, Ph.D., a researcher with The Miriam Hospital's Weight loss and Diabetes Research Center. "Our study provides evidence that weight loss might be a significant part of a migraine treatment for obese patients."
