Weight Loss Surgery and Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus

Latest statistics tell us, an average of around 166 people are newly diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes every day.

It is a health condition which affects many parts of the body and mental health, bringing an increased risk of more serious health concerns, such as a four times higher rate of heart attacks and strokes, as well as blindness, kidney failure and amputations.

Weight loss surgery can be an effective management of Type 2 Diabetes to help avoid these risks.

  • Research has shown bariatric surgery can offer remarkable improvements in blood sugar control and insulin sensitivity.
  • Following surgery, many patients reduce their need for medications to control Type 2 Diabetes, among other conditions.
  • Sustained weight loss helps to address the underlying cause of Type 2 Diabetes
