Studies show that bariatric surgery can effectively improve and resolve many co-morbid conditions. A review of more that 22,000 bariatric surgery patients showed:

  • Improvement in or complete resolution of conditions including type 2 diabetes, hypertension, and sleep apnea4
  • 61.2% reduction of excess weight4

Results of Five-Year Follow-up28

Diet and Exercise*2% to 5%28
Bariatric Surgery***50% to 70%28

* Success measured as a loss of 10% of initial body weight.

** Weight loss is not maintained once treatment ends.

*** Success measured as a loss of 50% of excess body weight (equivalent to loss of approximately 20% to 25% of initial body weight).
