Bariatric Surgery May Benefit Renal, Retinal Diabetes Complications      6/22/2014


Medscape (2/8, Nainggolan) reports, "Physicians from the United Kingdom have reported the first data showing that bariatric surgery in morbidly obese patients with type 2 diabetes may be of benefit for the renal and retinal complications of diabetes." The results were reported in two poster sessions at the Excellence in Diabetes 2013 meeting in Istanbul, Turkey. "The Imperial College London researchers performed a prospective case-control study comprising 75 patients who underwent bariatric surgery - gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy, or gastric banding procedures - and 71 who received best medical care." The study's lead author reported that "one-year results show that bariatric surgery improves markers of kidney disease and might ultimately halt the progression of diabetic nephropathy." At the one-year point, however, no overt benefit was seen for retinopathy, but the study's lead author was optimistic that improved outcomes would soon be noticed.
