  • Precise BMI cut-off at 35 is not an accurate parameter to predict the potential of surgery to induce glycaemic and metabolic control. No existing studies have shown evidence of excessive weight loss following conventional bariatric operations in patients with BMI 30-35.
  • Weight loss alone explains diabetes control after LAGB (A) Intestinal bypass procedures (RYGB, BPD, D-J bypass) appear to engage additional anti-diabetic mechanisms beyond those restricted to food intake and weight.(A)
  • Why has gastric bypass not become the accepted treatment for diabetes for obese patients? The concept of GI surgery as an endocrine modifier has been fully embraced by the clinical community. Perception that bariatric surgery offers nothing more than the motivation to change unhealthy lifestyle habits - precept that surgery treats diseases through mechanical changes rather than changes in the underlying pathophysiological mechanisms. Willingness to wait and hope for a new drug!
