Abstract

Objective: To examine associations between physical activity (PA) and mental health among adults undergoing bariatric surgery. Methods: Cross sectional analysis was conducted on pre-operative data of 850 adults with ≥. class 2 obesity. PA was measured with a step activity monitor; mean daily steps, active minutes, and high-cadence minutes (proxy for moderate-vigorous intensity PA) were determined. Mental health functioning, depressive symptoms and treatment for depression or anxiety were measured with the Medical Outcomes Study 36-item Short Form, Beck Depression Inventory, and a study-specific questionnaire, respectively. Logistic regression analyses tested associations between PA and mental health indicators, controlling for potential confounders. Receiver operative characteristic analysis determined PA thresholds that best differentiated odds of each mental health indicator. Results: Each PA parameter was significantly (p.
