Diabetes is a disease that can significantly affect any part of the body and lead to life-threatening complications if not kept under control. Diabetes is classified into different types for various reasons, and type 2 diabetes is the most common form of diabetes, accounting for 95% of all cases.

Obesity is the primary cause of type 2 diabetes and is a major risk factor for many ailments, including heart disease, stroke, blindness, kidney failure, amputations, impotence, depression and certain types of cancer.

Early treatment for type 2 diabetes includes lifestyle changes (weight loss, proper diet, exercise) and medications. These changes help the disease enter a period of remission. However, type 2 diabetes often worsens over time and requires more medication to keep blood sugar under control. For this reason, type 2 diabetes has been accepted as a chronic and progressive disease. Diabetes surgery aims to end all obesity-related diseases by providing sufficient weight loss in the person.

Type 2 diabetes can cause problems such as vision impairment, blindness, heart disease, stroke, kidney failure, amputation and nerve damage. May affect pregnancy or cause birth defects. About 80 percent of people with type 2 diabetes suffer from obesity.

All individuals show improvement in their health status after diabetic surgery. Approximately 90% of patients have a decrease in blood sugar, a decrease in the type and dosage of drugs used, and a decrease in diabetes-related symptoms.
