Recent studies have shown that metabolic surgery can lead to the remission of diabetes mellitus (DM) in a large portion of patients with both type 2 DM and morbid obesity. Metabolic surgery may be considered for glycemic control and weight loss in obese patients with type 2 DM. The most commonly performed bariatric surgeries are sleeve gastrectomy and Roux-en-Y gastric bypass. The effect of metabolic surgery, especially Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, is thought to be caused by mechanisms other than weight loss. Increased insulin secretion associated with altered gut hormones might play a role in this improvement. After metabolic surgery, glucose, lipids, and blood pressure are greatly improved, but not all patients with type 2 DM who undergo metabolic surgery achieve DM remission.
