CER Bariatrics knows that the risk of Bariatric Surgery is less than the risk of complication and even death from diabetes.
Diabetes is now becoming to be known as the silent killer. Diabetes currently affects more than 30.3 million people in the US alone and that number is quickly rising year after year. Over 90% of people with the disease have Type 2, which is associated with obesity and overweight, lack of physical activity, family history and older age. Unlike Type 1 diabetes in which the pancreas fails to produce enough insulin, the pancreas in patients with Type 2 diabetes produces enough insulin, but for unknown reasons, the body is unable to use the insulin. Diabetes can lead to blindness, heart, and blood vessel disease, strokes, kidney failure, amputations, and nerve damage and even death.
Bariatric surgery can cure some patient with Diabetes
Bariatric surgery, formerly used only for treating obesity, is now being explored as a cure for type 2 diabetes not only in obese patients but also in normal weight or moderately overweight A recent study on over 25,000 patients showed that 85 percent who underwent Roux-n-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) or Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy experienced complete reversal of their type 2 diabetes. Rapid improvement in blood sugars and reduction or elimination of diabetic medications is often seen within the immediate period following bariatric surgery, in some cases even before significant weight loss.
Don’t wait until it is too late, the earlier you make a stand to battle diabetes with CER Bariatrics the better the outcome may be for you.
Studies have proven the shorter the history of diabetes, the greater the likelihood of complete remission. Glucose toxicity, particularly in poorly controlled diabetes, accelerates B-cell failure. B-cells are located in the pancreas and produce and secrete insulin. Weight loss can improve B-cell responsiveness to glucose. If the bariatric surgical procedure is performed before irreversible B-cell failure has occurred, durable weight loss will be accompanied by a high likelihood of long-term remission.
Bariatric surgery is proven to be the best treatment for obesity.
Dietary and medical therapy for severe obesity has limited short-term success and almost nonexistent long-term success. Therefore, Bariatric surgery has been a popular treatment in the war against obesity. Weight loss surgery generally results in greater and sustained weight loss than conventional treatment and leads to improvements in quality of life and obesity-related diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, sleep apnea, and many others.
