Research presented at obesity week showed that those patients who attended regular follow-ups saw greater improvements or remission of comorbidities.
The study looked at the outcome of more than 51,000 patients. Some patients had three follow-up visits, at three, six and 12 months after their weight loss surgery. The remaining patients attended either two or one follow-up visits.
After one year, 62.3% of patients who had attended three follow-up visits saw their type 2 diabetes go into remission. However, the remission rate in the patients that only attend one or two times was at a rate of 57.5%. The rate of improvement in diabetes was once again better for those who had three visits compared to those who attend only one or two (74.6% vs 68.9%). The three-follow-up group also had a greater improvement in high blood pressure and high cholesterol.
