Article on Diabetes Remission Sheds Light on Restorative Nature of Bariatric Surgery, Notes Dr. Feiz & Associates

According to an article published March 17th on Medical Daily, a new study compared bariatric surgery against an intensive diet and exercise plan to find out which was more effective in combatting type 2 diabetes. The author of the article notes that weight loss surgery was overwhelmingly more successful than conventional methods in not only reducing excess body weight, but also in substantially reducing the need for the control group to take diabetes medication. The article notes that the trial mentioned, known as “Calorie Reduction or Surgery: Seeking to Reduce Obesity and Diabetes Study” or CROSSROADS, is one of the most thorough studies on this topic ever made.

Los Angeles based bariatric surgery clinic Dr. Feiz & Associates explains that type 2 diabetes is a chronic metabolic disorder that causes the body to improperly process insulin, which results in an excess buildup of blood sugar. It can lead to kidney failure, damage to the blood vessels, and also doubles the risk of cardiovascular disease, the weight loss clinic notes. Dr. Feiz & Associates explains that the research cited in the aforementioned article confirms the positive experiences of its patients. On the bright side, the clinic notes that a number of patients who have had weight loss surgery and a history of type 2 diabetes have demonstrated little or no need to continue taking diabetes medication or insulin supplements following significant reduction of excess body weight. Of course, the clinic adds, no matter the circumstances, no one should alter or stop taking a diabetes medication without first consulting their primary care physician.

Diabetes is just one of a plethora of conditions that are related to obesity and which can be successfully addressed through a surgically-supported weight loss, notes Dr. Feiz & Associates. These conditions include such well known obesity-related comorbid conditions as hypertension, often referred to as “the silent killer” because it is typically asymptomatic. However, another lesser known but also serious comorbidity is anything but silent. Indeed, Dr. Feiz & Associates notes that loud snoring is one of the primary markers of sleep apnea, the weight loss clinic notes. This condition is characterized not only unpleasant nocturnal noises, but the short, periodic cessation of breathing during sleep due to the collapse of soft tissue in the throat. Dr. Feiz & Associates notes that chronic obstructive sleep apnea is present in approximately 60% of candidates for bariatric surgery. The heavier a patient weighs, they note, the more excess body weight presses on the patient’s chest and lungs, which can have a damaging effect on sleep quality and is a known risk factor for heart attacks and strokes, not to mention severe fatigue.

The good news, Dr. Feiz & Associates notes, is that research has found sleep apnea to be reduced or even eliminated in 85.7% of patients following bariatric surgery. Michael Feiz M.D., F.A.C.S., the lead bariatric surgeon at the center, explains that, while procedures such as the sleeve gastrectomy and the Lap Band are scientifically proven to help patients lose weight, the fact that they can also improve these chronic health concerns makes them truly life-saving procedures.
