  • INTERATIONAL DIABETES FOUNDATION POSITION STATEMENT ON BARIATRIC SURGERY IN THE TREATMENT OF T2DM

The document recognized that:

  • In addition to behavioral and medical treatments, bariatric surgeries constitute a powerful option to ameliorate diabetes in patients affected by severe obesity.
  • Bariatric surgery is an appropriate treatment for people with T2DM and obesity not achieving recommended treatment targets with medical therapies
  • Surgery should be an accepted option in people who have T2DM and a BMI of 35 or more.
  • Surgery should be considered as an alternative treatment option in patients with a BMI between 30 and 35 when T2DM cannot be adequately controlled by optimal medical regimen, especially in the presence of other major cardiovascular disease risk factors.
  • The risk for complications and death with bariatric surgery is low and similar to that of well-accepted procedures.

Metabolic and bariatric surgery for T2DM must be performed within accepted guidelines which include an ongoing multidisciplinary care, patient education, follow-up and clinical audit, as well as safe and effective surgical procedures.
