The word Diabesity derives its name from Diabetes (Type2) and Obesity because of the close association between them. Obesity typically comes first and diabetes comes later. Outcomes of bariatric surgeries have led to conclusive proof that obesity causes diabetes. This inference seems reasonable because, the two often co-exist. According to bariatric surgeons, prestigious Journals like Nature and Lancet have concluded that diabetes is a surgical disease. It has emerged as a panacea.
