    Aim: Apolipoprotein E (apoE) plays a key role in lipoprotein metabolism. It is likely to have different functions in different lipoproteins, and glycation almost certainly affects its functionality. This study aimed to assess the effects of obesity on apoE concentration and distribution across lipoproteins, and its susceptibility to glycation, and discover the effect of weight loss after bariatric surgery.Methods: We studied total and glycated apoE, and the distribution of apoE across different lipoprotein sub-fractions in 20 non-obese and obese patients before and after bariatric surgery.Results: In obese patients total apoE and glycated apoE were higher compared with non-obese controls, at 59.5(27-108) vs. 46.7(30-88.5) mg/l (p1.21g/ml (13.3% vs. 16.5%, p0.05). Six months after bariatric surgery, total apoE decreased by 18.9%. The percentage apoE in VLDL increased by 31.6% (p1.21g/ml fractions (p
