Can gastric bypass sugery cure or significantly improve Diabetes Type I?



  1. 0 Votes

    The only information I have found about type I diabetics receiving gastric bypass surgery is for a specific group within that type. Usually, obesity is associated with type II diabetics, but there is a portion of type I diabetics who are obese as well. This portion can obtain gastric bypass surgery and see a significant improvement in their glucose levels and control. The amount of insulin they needed after the surgeries decreased markedly with the weight loss. Some type II diabetics who get gastric bypass surgery stop experiencing diabetes, but this remains to be seen in diabetes type I.
