Abstract

 

The prevalence of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and obesity shows a gradual increase nowadays. Despite the introduction of multiagent treatment modalities, many patients with T2DM still do not have good results. Bariatric/metabolic surgery performed in obese patients to attain weight loss has been shown to improve T2DM. Type 1 diabetes mellitus is another type of diabetes that also shows an increase in prevalence. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the literature about the bariatric/metabolic surgical procedures performed in patients with type 1 and type 2 diabetes.
