Bariatric surgery with lifestyle intervention increased diabetes remission

Bariatric surgery with lifestyle intervention increased diabetes remission
July 1, 2015

Bariatric surgery with 2 years of a low-level lifestyle intervention increased disease remission in patients with type 2 diabetes and obesity more than lifestyle intervention alone, according to recent study findings published in JAMA Surgery.

“This report addresses the primary question of comparative efficacy of surgical and nonsurgical treatments for [type 2 diabetes] remission and reports other glycemic control outcomes, weight change, lipids, blood pressure and body composition,” the researchers wrote. “These results contribute to addressing questions about the relative efficacy of different surgical vs. nonsurgical treatments for [type 2 diabetes] in lower BMI individuals.”
