Abstract

We read with great interest the article by Blackstone et al., recently published in Surgery for Obesity and Related Diseases, that reported on short-term remission rates of type 2 diabetes (T2DM) and the preoperative factors associated with remission in a cohort of patients submitted to bariatric surgery. The assessment of the long-term effect of bariatric surgery on the remission of T2DM is of paramount importance as well.
