The efficacy of mini-gastric bypass surgery in diabetic and prediabetic obese patients
Background: Our aim was to investigate the efficacy of mini-gastric bypass (MGB) surgery in diabetic and prediabetic obese patients. Materials and Methods: Sixty-five patients who had MGB operation and met the study criteria were examined. Patients with a body mass index (BMI) of >= 35 were divided into groups based on age, gender, BMI, bypass length, and cardiological risk groups. Results: The study included a total of 65 patients (45 women and 20 men). There was no difference between the cardiac risks and bypass lengths of women and men. We found a statistically significant decrease in the postoperative 3- and 12-month A1c levels of the class II and class III obese women and men compared with the preoperative values. When the postoperative 3- and 12-month A1c levels were compared, there was no significant difference in the A1c levels of the class II obese patients, whereas there was a significant decrease in the A1c levels of the class III obese patients according to the regression analysis (p < 0.05). Conclusion: Our results seem to be supportive of the MGB as an effective treatment strategy for diabetes remission and prediabetic cases.
