  Purpose
Obesity surgery is very effective in improving or even curing Type 2 Diabetes in patients with obesity. Many patients stop or reduce their medication after surgery and this can happen fairly quickly. The investigators do not know whether strict control of blood glucose/sugar after the operation makes any difference in the long term. Additionally many patients prefer their blood sugars to be a "bit high" because they are afraid of hypos.A number of studies have described patients whose eye, nerve and kidney disease has deteriorated when high sugars are controlled very quickly. The investigators want to ensure that surgery provides maximum benefit and remains safe in patients with diabetes. This study will help us decide if the investigators should be strict with blood glucose after obesity surgery operations or not and whether obesity surgery is safe for the eye, nerve and kidney complications of diabetes.

Further study details as provided by Carel Le Roux, Imperial College London:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of patients with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus who achieve fasting blood glucose of less than 5.6 mmol/l and/or HbA1c of less than 6% [ Time Frame: 1 year after surgery ]
    Patients will be tested off all antidiabetes medications if safe to do so


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus patients with a reduction in the doses/number of diabetes medications used preoperatively [ Time Frame: 1 year after surgery ]
  • Microvascular events [ Time Frame: 1 year after surgery ]
    Composite of microvascular events will be defined as new or worsening nephropathy, retinopathy or neuropathy.


Enrollment: 20
Study Start Date: December 2010
Study Completion Date: August 2016
Primary Completion Date: February 2016 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Intensive glycaemic control
Intensive glycaemic control All patients will be prescribed insulin glargine once a day. The dose of the insulin will be adjusted to achieve fasting capillary glucose levels between 5-7 in the intensive group and 7-9 mmol/l in the control group.
Drug: Insulin
All patients will be prescribed insulin glargine once a day. The dose of the insulin will be adjusted to achieve fasting capillary glucose levels between 5-7 in the intensive group and 7-9 mmol/l in the control group.
Other Name: Insulin Glargine
Active Comparator: Conservative glycaemic control
Conservative glycaemic control All patients will be prescribed insulin glargine once a day. The dose of the insulin will be adjusted to achieve fasting capillary glucose levels between 5-7 in the intensive group and 7-9 mmol/l in the control group.
Drug: Insulin
All patients will be prescribed insulin glargine once a day. The dose of the insulin will be adjusted to achieve fasting capillary glucose levels between 5-7 in the intensive group and 7-9 mmol/l in the control group.
Other Name: Insulin Glargine

Detailed Description:
Subjects would be randomised into intensive glycaemic control and conventional glycaemic control after obesity surgery. Data on complications of diabetes such as eye, nerve and kidney will be collected before obesity surgery and 1 year after surgery.
