Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this study was to examine hemoglobin A 1 C levels before and after a Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) in obese diabetes patients taking conventional medications and/or insulin treatment. A review of charts in an endocrinologist's office was used to select men and women who met the inclusion criteria for the study. The subjects was comprised of 3 men and 2 women in an age range of 41–69; the ethnic makeup of the cohort was 4 Caucasians and 1 Asian American.

The mean score of preoperative and postoperative hemoglobin AlC were, respectively, 9.3600 and 6.0400. The t-test result of .081 was very close to significant. This gastric surgery would be useful in treating and managing uncontrolled diabetes, as it has been shown to eliminate diabetes medications and/or insulin in some patients and in other patients, reduced dosage(s).
