OBESITY AND TYPE 2 DIABETES

“Did You Know that Surgery is One of the Most Effective Treatments for Type 2 Diabetes?”

Obesity is the primary cause for Type 2 Diabetes which is now one of the fastest growing chronic conditions in Australia. Over 50% of patients with Type 2 Diabetes are unable to adequately maintain their blood sugar within the normal range with medications alone. This leads to slow and irreversible organ damage and several complications including:

  • Blindness
  • Kidney Failure
  • Amputations
  • Stroke
  • Nerve Damage
  • Impotency
  • Reduced Life Expectancy

HOW DOES SURGERY WORK?

Bariatric (Weight-loss) Surgery has been shown to improve Type 2 Diabetes in nearly 90% of patients by:

  • Lowering blood sugar,
  • Reducing the dosage and type of medication required
  • Improving diabetes-related health problems.

As many 3 out of 4 patients are able to return to normal glucose levels eliminating the need for any diabetes medication. This effectiveness in the treatment of Type 2 Diabetes has been recognised by the world’s leading Diabetes organisations including the Australian Diabetes Society, all of whom recommend Bariatric Surgery for patients with Type 2 Diabetes with a BMI over 35 (and in some cases BMI over 30).

  • Bariatric Surgery has been proven as the most effective and long-lasting option for weight reduction in eligible obese patients. Our specialist team has extensive experience in Bariatric surgical options including Gastric Sleeve and Gastric Bypass which have been recommended for early treatment of Type 2 Diabetes to provide the best chance of success and help stem serious complications. Don’t wait until it’s too late. Come in and have a discussion with one of our surgeons to learn more about how Perth Bariatric Surgery can help you.

Deciding to have surgery requires careful thought and discussion. Dr Andrew Kiyingi and his team can explain what each procedure involves & recommend the best one for you.
