From the USA: In Type 2 Diabetes, Glycemic Control Superior After Bariatric Surgery

For patients with type 2 diabetes, glycemic control is superior with bariatric surgery versus medical/lifestyle intervention after seven to 12 years of follow-up, according to a study published online in the Feb. 27 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association.

Anita P. Courcoulas, M.D., from the University of Pittsburgh, and colleagues examined long-term glycemic control and safety of bariatric surgery versus medical/lifestyle management of type 2 diabetes in a pooled analysis of four U.S. single-center randomized trials (262 participants).
