Bariatric surgery is cost-effective treatment for patient with T2DM

Performing bariatric surgery in patients with morbid obese with type 2 DM is a cost-effective strategy in Thailand, according to researchers from King Chulalongkorn Memorial Hospital (KCMH) and Thammasat University, Bangkok, Thailand. The authors note that although the evidence suggests that bariatric surgery is a successful long-term treatment in patients with morbid obese with type 2 DM, it is an expensive procedure with additional costs possible in the months following surgery. Therefore, they wanted to assess whether bariatric surgery is cost-effective in this group of patients.
