Bariatric surgery is generally recommended for obese people with a body mass index (BMI) of at least 40kg/m2, and for people with BMI 35 kg/m2 and serious coexisting medical conditions such as diabetes. A variety of studies showed that it cause significant weight loss, recovery from diabetes and improvement in cardiovascular risk factors, such as blood pressure. The recent guidelines suggest that patients with a BMI of more than 30 kg/m2 with co morbidities is a candidate for bariatric surgery. However, the patients with diabetes in Chinese has lower BMI than that in west country. Therefore, this research is designed to observe whether bariatric surgery reduce blood pressure in patients with diabetes and relatively lower BMI.
