Can New Surgery Revolutionize Diabetes Treatment?
Date:5/14/2009

stinal surgery to treat diabetes per se.

"It would be premature at this point to argue every diabetes patient is a candidate for gastrointestinal surgery," Dr. Rubino said. "However, there is enough evidence that surgery should be considered as an option to endocrinologists in the treatment of type 2 diabetes."

Metabolic surgery is the result of a collaborative effort between endocrinologists and surgeons working to optimize the surgery for diabetes patients. Together they can formulate a "tailored intervention," designing procedures that allow them to gain a greater understanding of how the disease works.

"Recognizing the need to work as a team across disciplines that includes endocrinologists and surgeons is the first critical step to address the issues and opportunities that surgery offers to diabetes care and research," Dr. Rubino said.

Thus far the results are intriguing: "This collaborative effort is helping us gain a broader, more comprehensive understanding of diabetes," Rubino said. "In the end it will pay dividends for patients."

For more information about diabetes, download the American College of Endocrinology's (ACE) "Power of Prevention(R)" Magazine here. The magazine features medical information on prediabetes, type 1 and type 2 diabetes, diabetes complications, and tips on how diabetes patients can best prepare for disaster.
