A group of Brazilian researchers say bariatric surgery (stomach stapling) is the most effective therapy for extreme obesity. Their recent studies show that glucose control can also improve with the surgery.
In a study presented at the ADA's scientific sessions in June, researchers from the University of Campinas in Sao Paulo, Brazil, observed 10 type 2s at the time of the surgery, and again six and 12 months after the surgery.
The researchers wrote that a "massive reduction of 70 percent of the initial excess body weight" was obtained one year after the surgery. In addition, insulin sensitivity improved and A1c values decreased from an average of 10.8% to 4.6%.
