10 Things that you probably did not know about Diabetes # 8

Do you know that is bariatric surgery?

Current therapy for type 2 diabetes includes lifestyle intervention (weight-loss, appropriate diet, exercise) and anti-diabetes medication(s). Medical supervision and strict adherence to the prescribed diabetes treatment regimen may help to keep blood sugar levels from being excessively high although medications and lifestyle changes cause remission of the disease.

In fact, T2DM often worsens with time, requiring even greater numbers of medication or a higher dosage to keep blood sugar under control. For this reason, T2DM has been considered a chronic and progressive disease.

Nearly all individuals who have bariatric surgery show improvement in their diabetic state. Bariatric surgeries performed in more than 135,000 patients were found to affect type 2 diabetes in the following ways:

Surgery improves type 2 diabetes in nearly 90 percent of patients by:
  • lowering blood sugar

  • reducing the dosage and type of medication required

  • improving diabetes-related health problems

Surgery causes type 2 diabetes to go into remission in 78 percent of individuals by:
  • reducing blood sugar levels to normal levels

  • eliminating the need for diabetes medications

Health Improvements
  • Cause the improvement or remission of T2DM to last for years.

See you soon.
