Metabolic surgery as the name suggests takes care of the metabolic syndrome that comprises of diabetes, hypertension and dyslipidemia. It was initially offered only to the morbidly obese , but now it is done on diabetics with a BMI of 27.5 as well. Results are phenominal with diabetes getting off as early as the next day of the surgery.
It is also a key hole surgery requiring just 2 to 3 day hospital stay. However this procedure is successful when done to type 2 diabetics. Besides this, there are certain blood tests which need to be done to ensure whether one qualifies for a metabolic surgery in order to get remission from type 2 diabetes.
