Sleeve Gastrectomy can reverse diabetes and high blood pressure!

Last week, in The Journal of Obesity Surgery, a publication looked at their 5-year outcomes on patients who underwent a sleeve gastrectomy. They followed up on 168 patients who underwent sleeve gastrectomy from December 2005 to November 2010. They reassessed them in 2016 and reported very exciting results:¹

  1. Only 3.6% required another operation because of weight regain
  2. Average BMI decreased from 46 to 30 over two years!
  3. 79% of patients had REMISSION of their diabetes at 2 years
  4. 60% had remission of their high blood pressure at 5 year follow up!

Currently the sleeve gastrectomy is the most popular bariatric surgery in the world. More and more studies are emerging demonstrating long term effectiveness!
