C-peptide Predicts the Remission of Type 2 Diabetes After Bariatric Surgery

Conclusions  Baseline C-peptide is commonly elevated in morbidly obese patients with T2DM. There was a marked reduction in C-peptide after
a significant weight reduction 1 year after surgery with a T2DM remission rate of 78.0%. Thus, bariatric surgery is recommended
for obesity-related T2DM patients with elevated C-peptide.
