Gastric bypass surgery has become a popular option for obese people who want to shed pounds quickly, but diabetics also have something to gain from the procedure: the surgery can resolve type 2 diabetes.
Bariatric surgery, formerly used only for treating obesity, is now being explored as a cure for type 2 diabetes not only in obese patients but also in normal weight or moderately overweight people.
A recent study on over 20,000 patients showed that 84 percent who underwent Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) experienced complete reversal of their type 2 diabetes. Rapid improvement in blood sugars and reduction or elimination of diabetic medications is often seen within the immediate period following bariatric surgery, even before significant weight loss
While the number of diabetic patients needing medical therapy with oral hypoglycemics or insulin reaches almost 90 percent over time, the need for medical management falls to less than 8 percent among those who have gastric bypass. These results are typically persistent for rest of the life, as long as normal body weight is sustained. Resolution of diabetes is measured by normalized fasting blood sugar and glycosylated hemoglobin (HgA1C) concentrations. Some studies show that every 1 percent drop in HbA1C causes a relative reduction of long-term complications of diabetes by 25 to 45 percent.
