investigate the effect of bariatric surgery on HbA1c and serum cortisol
levels in morbidly obese patients without type 2 diabetes mellitus.
MATERIALS AND METHODS:
Twenty-nine patients who underwent sleeve gastrectomy and whose body mass
index was> 40 were included in the present study. Patients' files were
reviewed retrospectively. Those with diabetes mellitus and those with age
<18 were excluded from the study. Pre-operative and 1-year post operative
data were documented. The obtained data were analysed by SPSS statistical
The mean age of the patients was 27.4 ± 8.4. 5 of the patients were male,
and 24 were female. The mean body mass index of the patients was 44 ± 2.3. 1
patient [3.4%] had hypertension. Four patients [13.7%] had gastroesophageal
reflux disease. The number of smokers was 7 [24.1%], and the number of
alcohol users was 3 [10.3%]. There was a statistically significant decrease
in HbA1c, body mass index values after operation [p value <0.01], but
cortisol was not different [p value = 0.72].
In this present study we found that bariatric surgery caused a significant
decrease in HbA1c levels in non-diabetic patients, suggesting that bariatric
surgery may prevent Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus in obese patients.
