Washington: In a study, researchers have found that bariatric surgery reduces the long-term risk of developing diabetes by over 80 percent among people with obesity.Conducted by Professor Lars Sjostrom, Professor Lena Carlsson and their team at Sahlgrenska Academy, University of Gothenburg, the study observed that bariatric surgery is considerably more effective than traditional care and lifestyle changes in preventing diabetes among people with obesity.The treatment group consisted of 1,658 subjects who had undergone bariatric surgery, while the control group consisted of 1,771 equally obese people who had received traditional care. During 15-year follow-up, 392 people in the control group and only 110 people in the treatment group developed diabetes.“Our results show that bariatric surgery can reduce the risk of developing diabetes by more than 80 percent. This is an extremely high figure,” Professor Sjostrom said.
