Management of hypoglycaemia post- bariatric surgery

Tuesday 6th December 2022, 19.00 - 20.00

In this webinar join Professor Tricia Tan to discuss management of hypoglycaemia post- bariatric surgery. Bariatric or metabolic surgery is a proven treatment for durable weight loss, and offers the prospect of long-term remission of diabetes. Surgery is being increasingly considered for the treatment of obesity and diabetes and is becoming increasingly common. As a result, physicians are encountering complications arising from bariatric surgery in metabolic and diabetes clinics. One such complication is post-bariatric hypoglycaemia, typically a hyperinsulinaemic hypoglycaemia which occurs between 1-3 hours after ingestion of food. Far from being a rare complication, recent studies demonstrate that hypoglycaemia after bariatric surgery may be very common. In this talk, Dr Tan will discuss the aetiopathogenesis of post-bariatric hypoglycaemia, implications for patient health and its management.
