This is what the scientists of the University hospital in Aarhus, Denmark report in the journal Diabetologia.
These people not only benefited from the decline of the Diabetes, but they also had a skin with a lower risk of complications caused by poor circulation, for example, the network or the kidneys. However, the number of relapses increased over time after SURGERY, slowly, so that 27 per cent after five years, were re-diabetics.
Since about 20 to 30 years, the so-called bariatric surgery, is a treatment method for patients with extreme obesity, often develop a type 2 Diabetes. A short-term improvement in the diabetes disease occurs in 75 to 90 percent of the Treated. For this study, 1.111 diabetics who had received between 2006 and 2015, a gastric Bypass were compared over an average of five years, with 1.074 diabetic patients who were not operated on.
