Abstract The prevalence of obesity is increasing and is co-epidemic with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Treatment of obesity has been less than adequate, particularly when managing morbidly obese patients. Research on T2DM has shown a number of new pharmacologic therapies along with the rapid employment of bariatric surgery. Improvement of T2DM, including its remission, after bariatric surgery has been recognized for more than a decade. However, not all procedures are the same. Restrictive… 

Diabetes and the Nutrition and Diets for Its Prevention and Treatment: A Systematic Review and Dietetic Perspective

The systematic review widely focused on diabetes and the developments in nutrition and diets required to prevent or control all types of diabetes found adequate dieting and regular exercise are very important in preventing or controlling diabetes.

Usefulness of combining intermittent hypoxia and physical exercise in the treatment of obesity

Observations allow consideration of the hypothesis that intermittent hypoxia induces fat loss and may ameliorate cardiovascular health, which might be of interest for the treatment of obesity.

Amelioration in Hepatic Insulin Sensitivity by Reduced Hepatic Lipid Accumulation at Short-Term After Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass Surgery in Type 2 Diabetic Rats

Diabetes remission was induced at short term after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass and the improvement of hepatic tissue lipotoxicity decreased the activation of certain PKC isoforms, the activity of JNK and IKK inflammatory signaling pathways, and the degree of oxidative stress.

Changing Spectrum of Diabetes Mellitus in Children

The initial classification of DM frequently requires revision (10% in this study), and the misclassification is highest among DM2 patients who initially present with higher HbA1c and DKA.

Review on Diabetes Mellitus

This review explores diabetes in terms of its historical perspective, organic chemistry basis, economic burden, management interventions together with the long run views.

Quality of life of type 2 diabetic patients attending family medicine outpatient clinic of Suez Canal university hospitals in Ismailia city thesis

Type 2 diabetes mellitus has negatively affected all the quality of life domains of the study group, including physical health and social relationships domain.

Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass Reduces Lipid Overaccumulation in Liver by Upregulating Hepatic Autophagy in Obese Diabetic Rats

It is suggested that the effects of RYGB on autophagy in liver may be due to the increased GLP-1 level after surgery, and the activated autophagic in liver might play a key role in reducing the hepatic lipid overaccumulation after RY GB.

Mecanismos de regulación del anabolismo lipídico en el tejido adiposo del paciente obeso

The local activation of thyroid hormone and the ability to synthesize fat are altered in adipose tissue from obese patients, and indicate significant differences between visceral and subcutaneous adiposes tissue depots.

Although small numbers of patients may be interested in bariatric surgery for type 2 diabetes, current data are insufficient to endorse its wide scale use for this indication, and the role and economics in the diabetic clinic will remain uncertain.

Obesity, bariatric surgery and type 2 diabetes—a systematic review

Sustained weight loss through bariatric surgical intervention is associated both with prevention of progression of IGT and with clinical remission of early type 2 diabetes.

Until better approaches become available, bariatric surgery is the therapy of choice for patients with severe obesity, with salutary effects on the other comorbidities as well with significant reductions in all-cause mortality.

Gastrointestinal surgery as a treatment for diabetes.

In this issue of JAMA, Dixon and colleagues report a 2-year study in which patients with recently diagnosed type 2 diabetes and a body mass index of 30 to 40 were randomly assigned to receive conventional medical/ behavioral therapy or laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB), finding that by promoting greater weight loss, LAGB was far more effective than medical/behavioral therapy at improving diabetes.

Effect of laparoscopic Roux-en Y gastric bypass on type 2 diabetes mellitus.

LRYGBP resulted in significant weight loss (60% percent of excess body weight loss) and resolution of type 2 diabetes mellitus resolution after surgery, suggesting that early surgical intervention is warranted to increase the likelihood of rendering patients euglycemic.

Surgical procedures are now being performed to treat diabetes in adults of lesser weight, and the importance of ruling out latent autoimmune diabetes in the adult (a variety of type 1) is suggested, before experimenting with these procedures.

Endocrine and nutritional management of the post-bariatric surgery patient: an Endocrine Society Clinical Practice Guideline.

All patients should receive care from a multidisciplinary team including an experienced primary care physician, endocrinologist, or gastroenterologist and consider enrolling postoperatively in a comprehensive program for nutrition and lifestyle management, to enhance the transition to life after bariatric surgery.

Impact of Different Bariatric Surgical Procedures on Insulin Action and β-Cell Function in Type 2 Diabetes

Lifestyle intervention, behavioral management, and drug therapy for obesity deliver a degree of weight loss that is usually modest (and therefore unattractive to patients) and short-lived (6 months to 1 year at best) and carry considerable side effects and trial evidence for an effect of these weight-control approaches on reducing cardiovascular disease or mortality is lacking.

Who Would Have Thought It? An Operation Proves to Be the Most Effective Therapy for Adult‐Onset Diabetes Mellitus

The gastric bypass operation provides long-term control of non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) and antidiabetic effects appear to be due primarily to a reduction in caloric intake, suggesting that insulin resistance is a secondary protective effect rather than the initial lesion.
