Obesity is a growing epidemic worldwide and is a leading risk factor for
developing type- 2 diabetes. It can lead to various complications, including
Peripheral Neuropathy (a condition that damages nerves that go from the spinal
cord to the hands and feet, Dermopathy (also called Diabetic Dermopathy, which
is a skin condition that often appears as light brown, scaly patches on the skin,
usually on the front of the legs), Nephropathy (also called diabetic kidney disease,
is a complication of diabetes that affects the kidneys), Retinopathy (also called
Diabetic Retinopathy, is a condition that affects the blood vessels in the retina of
the eye and may cause blurred vision, floaters, and in severe cases, blindness),
and COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease; a group of progressive lung
diseases that cause difficulty in breathing), among others. Proper management of
diabetes can help prevent or manage these conditions. It is harmless and does not
require treatment. Dr Amit Sood, a leading weight-loss expert and bariatric
surgeon in India (CKOSMIC Surgical Center, based in Punjab), agrees.

Dr Amit Sood is renowned as one of the leading bariatric surgeons in India and
has helped hundreds of patients beat obesity and other problems that stem from
the same branch, including type-2 diabetes. The effectiveness of bariatric surgery
for diabetes is a medical opinion shared by the global medical community.
A study which was conducted recently by the University of Michigan has shown
that bariatric surgery, a weight-loss procedure, may help reverse complications
related to diabetes, including peripheral neuropathy. The study included over 120
patients who underwent bariatric surgery for obesity, and after two years, all
metabolic risk factors for developing diabetes improved significantly, including
high glucose and lipid levels.
Moreover, patients who underwent bariatric surgery also showed improvements
in peripheral neuropathy. The results showed nerve fiber density improved in the
thigh and remained stable in the leg. It suggests that bariatric surgery may be an
effective treatment for individuals (with long-term metabolic impairment) with
peripheral neuropathy to lesson or reverse it.
These findings are consistent with previous studies, which suggest that bariatric
surgery leads to better metabolic improvements than medical weight loss. In
addition, bariatric surgery has shown remarkable progress in peripheral
It is important to note that bariatric surgery is not a one-size-fits-all solution and
requires careful consideration of a patient’s medical history and overall health. If
you are considering bariatric surgery, it is essential to consult an experienced
healthcare provider who can guide you through the process and determine if it is
the right choice for you.
