Kids who have tonsils removed have greater chance of weight gain

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- Kids who have their tonsils removed have an increased risk for gaining weight after surgery, according to a new report.

Researchers at St. Louis University studied 800 children who underwent a tonsillectomy between 1970 and 2009.

They found most gained more weight than was expected after the procedure.

Experts stop short of saying having your tonsils removed causes weight gain, but it is worth studying further.
