Diabetes Surgery

Bariatric surgery is sometimes referred to as diabetes surgery. Although our weight loss procedures treat many medical conditions and diseases in addition to diabetes, the reference to diabetes surgery has become commonplace because of how effective bariatric procedures are at treating this disease.

According to the Wall Street Journal, diabetes can “quickly recede” when bariatric surgery “alters the intestinal tract and diverts food away” from hormones in the small intestine that help regulate blood sugar levels. Additionally, the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery, the largest weight loss surgery association in the world, has released facts about diabetes and bariatrics. They say:

  • Approximately 90% of the cases of type 2 diabetes are tied to excess weight
  • Most patients who have bariatric surgery, and have type 2 diabetes, show improvement in their diabetes.
  • In almost 90% of the cases, bariatric surgery results in lowered blood sugar and reduction of diabetes-related medication.
  • In more than 75% of cases, bariatric surgery leads to the elimination of the need for diabetes medication, and a return of blood sugar to normal levels.

Diabetes is a dangerous disease. It can lead to nerve damage, blindness, kidney disease, stroke and amputation. Treating diabetes can in many cases delay or prevent these complications. If you have type 2 diabetes and are obese, call our office to learn more about the treatment options we offer. Early intervention has been shown to be more effective than later intervention, so speak with us as soon as possible. You can reach us at 800-633-8446.

“Having surgery was the best decision I have made and I am so happy! I owe a great deal of thanks to all the surgeons and staff at the New York Bariatric Group. They really helped me get the life I deserve.”

“They are competent, patient, and spend time with each patient to address concerns. In addition, the office staff is highly professional, knowledgeable about insurance issues, and makes you feel comfortable. Further, they go out of their way to help you, whether it be choosing foods to address your needs, or making an appointment to accommodate your schedule. If I had one regret about the surgery, it is that I hadn't had it done earlier!”
