Study Population

Individuals in need of lipid modification but are intolerant of statin drugs who are referred for a partial ileal bypass (PIB) operation, still the most efficacious means to treat hyperlipidemia. In the subgroup of these patients who also have type 2 diabetes, with a functioning pancreas, we hope to perform a pilot study on the effect of PIB on type 2 diabetes.

Study blood tests:

- Pre-PIB and at 6 month and 12 months postop fasting blood samples for glucose, hemoglobin A1c, insulin, C-peptide, GLP-1, ghrelin, and glucagon; then after oral glucose meal testing for determination of glucose, GLP-1, and ghrelin at 30, 60, 90, and 120 minutes.


Inclusion Criteria:

  • Hyperlipidemia patients referred for partial ileal bypass, who also have type 2 diabetes.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Preoperative C-peptide indicative of non-functioning islet cells.
