No Link between Diabetes Remission, Weight Regain after Gastric Bypass

Click here to edit the content

Researchers evaluated 652 patients who underwent laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGBP) at a single facility between March 2003 and December 2009. Follow-up was performed for a mean of 2.88 years after surgery. The cohort included 170 patients who had preoperative type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM).

Across all participants, the mean maximum excess weight loss (EWL) was 77.1%, with two-thirds of participants regaining an average of 19.1% of maximum EWL during follow-up. Most patients with T2DM (82.7%) were in remission upon completion of follow-up, with 5.8% of those with diabetes experiencing recurrence after remission. Recurrence was significantly associated with insulin use (75% compared with 18%) and longer T2DM duration (12.3 years vs. 6 years) compared with those who did not experience recurrence. Investigators said neither the maximum EWL nor the amount of weight regained were significantly different between recurrent and nonrecurrent patients.

Diabetes Patients Can Eat Immediately After Taking Insulin

Click here to edit the content

People with type 2 diabetes are sometimes told to wait after using insulin for the drug to work its way into the body before they can begin eating, but a new study from Germany indicates that it is not necessary to wait.

In a group of about 100 diabetics, researchers found that blood sugar levels remained steady regardless of whether or not participants left a 20 to 30-minute gap between using insulin and eating a meal. The diabetics overwhelmingly preferred being able to eat right away, too.
