Data presented at the World Diabetes Congress revealed patients with new-onset type 2 diabetes who underwent bariatric surgery maintained greater remission rates at two, 10 and 15 years compared with those who had diabetes for more than three years at baseline. Researchers also found patients with longer disease duration did not show significant improvements in diabetes complication rates following surgery compared with those who only received medical care.
