In the early part of the 21st century, bariatric surgery physicians were convinced that they had found a single treatment that cured both obesity and diabetes: bariatric surgery.

A decade later, research is beginning to mount against the diabetes benefits of this popular weight loss treatment, according to a report published in the British Journal of Surgery.

In this review of major diabetes-focused studies, the scientists found that 8 out of 10 bariatric surgery patients eventually came out of diabetes “remission”—even though they experienced major improvements in blood sugar directly following the procedure.

The authors note that the surgery doesn’t do enough to correct diet and lifestyle behaviors that contribute to type 2 diabetes.
