Diabetes Surgery: A Cost-Effective Approach to Diabetes Treatment

New findings from the Swedish Obesity Subjects (SOS) study published in The Lancet Diabetes & Endocrinology suggests that, when considering overall costs of healthcare, obese patients with type 2 diabetes, especially those with recent disease onset, should be prioritized for obesity surgery over those without type 2 diabetes. Many patients see a reversal of diabetes after surgery and thus need fewer expensive diabetes medications or treatment for complications in the future.

Cost-effectiveness of surgical treatment of type 2 diabetes, coverage, and access to care will be discussed in depth at WCITT2D 2015 & DSS-II. A "Policy Lab" session will bring together senior clinicians, academics, and health policy figures to debate the role of bariatric/metabolic surgery as a treatment for specific population groups with diabetes and whether benefits to patients and health services could be realized by expanding access to it. The Policy Lab is hosted by the Policy Institute at King's College London in partnership with RAND Europe.
