Weight Loss Surgery Can Effectively Treat Type 2 Diabetes
Recent studies published in the New England Journal of Medicine showed that patients who underwent bariatric surgery for Type 2 diabetes were significantly more likely to lower blood sugar to normal levels than those treated with drugs, diet, and exercise.
Individuals who are overweight or obese have increased health risks from hypertension, dyslipidemia, type 2 diabetes, coronary heart disease, stroke, gallbladder disease, osteoarthritis, sleep apnea, other respiratory problems, and certain cancers. Higher body weights are also associated with increased deaths in all-cause mortality*. The successful, long-term management of obesity, type 2 diabetes and other comorbidities depends on a dedicated, multidisciplinary team working together with the patient and their family.
