Diabetes groups recommend gastric surgery as diabetes treatment

DiabetesPro SmartBrief | May 25, 2016

Gastric surgery should be a standard treatment option for patients with type 2 diabetes who have a BMI over 40 or a BMI over 30 and uncontrolled blood glucose levels, according to guidelines published in Diabetes Care and endorsed by international organizations, diabetes specialists and researchers, including the American Diabetes Association and the International Diabetes Federation. The guidelines were based on studies that showed the procedure can reduce blood glucose levels below the type 2 diabetes diagnosis threshold or improve blood glucose levels in a majority of the cases, which would allow many people to reduce or discontinue their diabetes medications.
