Release Date: 30-Nov-2020

Researchers from  British Obesity and Metabolic Surgery Society (BOMSS) and the Population Health Research Institute at St Georges revealed that weight loss surgery can put severe form of diabetes-2 into remission. For this study, patients who had insulin-dependent type-1 diabetes and underwent weight loss surgery between 2009 and 2017 were recruited. After one year after the operation, 2 of the 3 people does not require insulin and one in three had no more diabetes. It is believed that  carrying out weight loss surgery in more people would be more cost effective too because treating type 2 diabetes and its complications costs the NHS andpound;10 billion a year at the moment. Patients with obesity and severe diabetes have not previously been prioritised for surgery, but the findings suggest that offering weight loss surgery to this group of patients not only leads to improved health, but by reducing the need for multiple daily medications, benefits the taxpayer.
