A total of 22 (14F/8M) patients with a mean age of 50.3 years (range, 33 to 64 y) and a mean body mass index of 28.4 kg/m (range, 21.8 to 38.3 kg/m) underwent loop duodenojejunal bypass with sleeve gastrectomy from October 2011 to March 2012. The mean duration of onset of type 2 diabetes mellitus was 8 years (range, 1 to 20 y). All patients were on oral hypoglycemic agents; 3 (14%) patients were also using insulin. The mean preoperative glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c), fasting plasma sugar, and C-peptide levels dropped from 8.6% (range, 7% to 13.2%), 147 mg/dL (range, 108 to 241 mg/dL), and 2.4 ng/mL (range, 0.7 to 4.1 ng/mL) to 6.2% (range, 5.1% to 9.1%), 110 mg/dL (range, 72 to 234 mg/dL), and 1.3 ng/mL (range, 0.6 to 2.8 ng/mL) at 6 months, respectively. At 6 months, 11 (50%) patients showed type 2 diabetes mellitus remission (HbA1c<6.0%), and 20 (91%) patients achieved HbA1c<7.0% without medicine. There were no intraoperative or early postoperative complications. Loop duodenojejunal bypass with sleeve gastrectomy is safe, feasible, and shows good efficacy in terms of glycemic control in this preliminary report with short follow-up.
