Israeli Doctors Able to Predict which Diabetes Patients Will Benefit Long Term from Weight-Loss Surgery

So Jeshurun grew fat and kicked – You grew fat and gross and coarse – He forsook the God who made him and spurned the Rock of his support.

But the use of bariatric – weight-loss – surgery on obese patients with or without diabetes has put the disease in a new perspective.

The operation has also been linked to a lower incidence of myocardial infarction (29%), stroke (34%), cancer in women (42%) and overall mortality (30–40%).

Surgeons and diabetologists have been unable to predict which diabetes patients would benefit from bariatric surgery – a major, costly and occasionally risky procedure – and whose diabetes would not go into remission.

After the surgery, swallowed food goes into this small stomach pouch and then directly into the small intestine, thereby bypassing most of the stomach and the first section of your small intestine.

Half of all obese diabetes patients who diet and take medications bounce back to their original weight and glucose levels within four years.

They developed a pre-operative examination of key health indicators that has proven itself to be an accurate predictor in the medium term and not only short term of achieving diabetes remission in patients who undergo the surgery.

Their clinical scoring system is called Advanced-DiaRem (short for diabetes remission).

Ordinary DiaRem, a clinical scoring system designed to predict diabetes remission RYGB, is not accurate for all individuals across the entire spectrum of scores and for many years after the surgery.

“On the most local level, the ability to predict an individual’s reaction to surgery will give both doctors and patients the clarity they need to make informed medical decisions.
