Which patients are eligible candidates for bariatric surgery?

• Patients with a body mass index greater than 40 kg/m2 should be treated with bariatric surgery regardless of any other reason. Patients with a body mass index greater than 35kg/m2 and who have a disease that can be treated with bariatric surgery, such as diabetes, hypertension, coronary artery disease or sleep apnea, are also eligible candidates for bariatric surgery.

Can diabetes (Type 2 Diabetes) be surgically treated?

In fact, it has long been known that coexisting diabetes in obesity is treated to varying extents with bariatric surgery. The new information is that non-morbidly obese patients, patients with a body mass index ranging from 27 to 35 kg/m2, can be treated with surgeries called metabolic surgery.
