With evidence strongly supporting the use of metabolic & bariatric surgery as a treatment for type 2 diabetes, there is a growing number of people with diabetes presenting for surgery. This population brings some unique challenges to medical, nutrition, behavioral health, and exercise providers for pre- and post-op management. In this session, our speakers will provide best practice guidelines for optimizing the care of people with diabetes before and after metabolic surgery.

Learning Objectives

  1. Describe the mechanisms of diabetes improvement related to metabolic & bariatric surgery
  2. Develop protocols for management of patients with type 2 diabetes before and after bariatric surgery
