Weight Loss Surgery and Diabetes

Type 2 diabetes is closely associated with obesity. Obesity can both contribute to its development and worsen the disease, which is why weight loss is so important for these patients. Bariatric surgery may be an option for some people who are obese and have obesity-related health conditions such as diabetes.

You can hear more about this issue by watching this interview with a bariatric surgeon. She explains that bariatric surgery can actually cure diabetes in some cases. In addition to the benefits of significant weight loss, these surgeries create hormonal changes within the body that increases its ability to handle blood sugar.
