The present study provides evidence for the existence of an adverse cardiometabolic profile in subjects currently considered to be outside traditional NIH guidelines but exhibiting a highly increased adiposity. It is concluded that body composition analysis yields valuable information to be incorporated into indication criteria for BS and that adiposity may be an independent indicator for BS.
