Metabolic Surgery

The classic treatment of metabolic syndrome is diet exercise and lifestyle modification. In cases where these are not sufficient, some medications and insulin therapy come into play. However, the use of medication, together with diet, exercise and lifestyle changes, reaches the treatment targets in only 15-20% of type 2 diabetic patients. The rate of patients who can control weight with diets is only around 2%.

In the treatment of obesity and type 2 diabetes, the desired results cannot be achieved with dietary exercise lifestyle changes. Surgical treatment of metabolic syndrome results in extremely high success today. When it comes to metabolic syndrome, insulin resistance and the development of type 2 diabetes, hypertension, high body mass index, high triglyceride, low HDL-good cholesterol, and excess waist circumference are always present in patients.
