Type 2 Diabetes is a chronic disease that causes numerous medical complications. When the patient is affected by this disease, insulin continues to be produced, but it is not produced in sufficient quantity for the needs of the body. Obesity is one of the main reasons for the development of type 2 diabetes. Although there are many treatments for type 2 diabetes, most patients do not have complications.
Recent scientific studies show the positive effects of bariatric surgery procedures in the treatment of obese and non-obese patients with type 2 diabetes. For this reason, bariatric surgery is also called metabolic surgery due to the effects it brings, from weight loss to metabolic control, especially in patients with type 2 diabetes. Type 2 diabetes is now considered a surgically treatable gastrointestinal disease.
