Diabetes is a dangerous medical illness with severe complications, including high blood pressure, heart attacks, strokes and kidney failure, just to name a few. The toll this disease takes on patients and their families cannot be put into words. The toll it puts on the health care system can be placed at $245 billion by the American Diabetes Association in 2012. Studies have shown that weight loss surgery did more to improve the symptoms of diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol after three years than intensive treatment with only medications. In our vast experience, we have seen that 80% of Type 2 diabetics have either complete resolution or great improvement in their blood glucose control in a very short time after surgery. This is on top of a study that stated bariatric surgery also reduced the risk 80% of even developing Type 2 diabetes. Now, bariatric surgery is even being talked about as a method to control diabetes in patients with a BMI as low as 30 because of its effectiveness. With bariatric surgery yielding superior control and even remission of diabetes, it also leads to a healthier and happier life free from its many fears and complications. Recently it has been recommended that people with obesity and Type 2 diabetes be prioritized for bariatric surgery because of the possibility of the its reversal over those without diabetes since the benefits of the surgery are so dramatic.
