Treatment of diabetes in morbidly obese person with bariatric surgery has shown excellent results, with resolution of diabetes between 70%-90%, depending on the procedure that was done, and the duration of the disease. Since the start of bariatric surgery in 1953 with J-I bypass, gastric bypass, gastro-plasty, BPD-DS, lap-band and the sleeve gastrectomy, resolution of diabetes has been observed after these procedures. The mechanism of diabetes resolution and improvement is complex, part of it being results of low caloric intake, weight loss, and hormonal manipulations.
