Recent Journal Article on Diabetes Remission Adds to the Growing Pile Of Evidence in Favor of Bariatric Surgery, Says Dr. Feiz and Associates
Date:9/1/2015

According to a study published August 25th in the Journal of the American Medical Association, individuals with type 2 diabetes that participated in a three year study about weight loss and diabetes were far more likely to see remission of diabetes three years down the line if they elected weight loss surgery at the onset of the trial. In fact, the participants in the trial that were selected not for bariatric surgery but instead for a three year lifestyle modification plan, did not experience any statistically significant diabetes reduction as a group. On the other hand, anywhere from 29 to 40 percent of all patients who had weight loss surgery (depending on the specific procedure) experienced a complete or partial remission of type 2 diabetes at the three year mark after their surgery. According to Los Angeles bariatric surgeon Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S. of Dr. Feiz and Associates, there have been numerous studies over the years with similar findings about the relationship between diabetes and weight loss surgery.

  • According to a long term study highlighted by WebMD, 62 percent of former diabetic patients had no signs of diabetes when surveyed six years after their weight loss surgery. Dr. Feiz notes that, because bariatric patients typically experience a leveling off of their weight loss at around the two year mark after surgery, most of the studies that deal with diabetes remission must be conducted at least three years after the surgery is performed in order to produce accurate results.
  • Additionally, Dr. Feiz points out that those that do not have diabetes, but have been determined by their doctors to be at risk for developing the disease due to their weight, are less likely to develop diabetes after having weight loss surgery. One study, published in The Lancet Diabetes & Endocrinology Journal, showed that these patients were 80 percent less likely to develop diabetes compared to the control group who did not have surgery to address their obesity.

Dr. Feiz explains that the reason weight loss surgery is so effective in reducing the prevalence of type 2 diabetes is because it is the best, scientifically proven method to help obese patients lose weight. Obesity is tied heavily to diabetes, heart disease, and a number of other dangerous conditions, so losing excess weight typically has huge benefits for a patient’s overall health.
