Plano, TX, 2016 – The link between obesity and type 2 diabetes has been strongly established in multiple studies. Shedding pounds has been proven to dramatically lower the risks of this chronic disease developing in the first place. Research is now supporting the theory that dropping weight through bariatric surgery can improve or even eliminate type 2 diabetes symptoms once it has developed.

“Researchers have been looking at such interventions as the gastric bypass and its impacts on those with type 2 diabetes,” says Dr. Nick Nicholson, founder and lead surgeon at the North Texas-based Nicholson Clinic, one of the top weight loss surgery centers in the country. “So far, the results have been very promising. While weight loss surgery isn’t a guarantee that every obesity-related case of type 2 diabetes will go away with extra pounds, a strong connection has been found.”

Dr. Nicholson is referring to multiple studies that have been performed involving obese, type 2 diabetics and the effects weight loss surgery may have on their health. Some patients have found dramatic improvements in glucose levels following surgery. Diabetics, for example, who once relied on medication may find they no longer need it to keep blood sugar in check. Other patients have even seen a complete reversal of the condition. One of the more recent studies looked at a group of patients who either underwent gastric bypasses or lifestyle and medication interventions to treat type 2 diabetes symptoms. An estimated 60 percent of patients in the bypass group saw their symptoms go away. Only about 6 percent of the lifestyle group enjoyed a reversal of symptoms.

“Bariatric surgery can have positive impacts on the body and overall health for those who struggle with obesity,” says Dr. Nicholson. “While no one can guarantee a reversal of diabetes, surgery may provide the answer for some.”

A variety of bariatric procedures exist to help people who are obese address this concern. To learn more about the Nicholson Clinic, its locations and the weight loss services it provides, visit it online at .
