Best medical management and gastric bypass surgery is a way to treat diabetes as part of regular medical care (standard of care). However, gastric bypass surgery is not a way to treat diabetes as part of regular medical care (standard of care).


Best medical management and gastric bypass surgery are ways to treat obesity as part of regular medical care (standard of care). Best medical management is a way to treat diabetes as part of regular medical care (standard of care). However, gastric bypass surgery is not a way to treat diabetes as part of regular medical care (standard of care). But, studies suggest that diabetes gets better or goes away after gastric bypass surgery. This study is being done to find out if diabetes gets better or goes away completely after a patient has gastric bypass surgery as part of regular medical care (standard of care).

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Simultaneous and continuous monitoring of several parameters during sleep to study normal and abnormal sleep. The study includes monitoring of brain waves, to assess sleep stages, and other physiological variables such as breathing, eye movements, and blood oxygen levels which exhibit a disrupted pattern with sleep disturbances.

Dyssomnias (i.e., insomnias or hypersomnias) associated with dysfunction of internal sleep mechanisms or secondary to a sleep-related medical disorder (e.g., sleep apnea, post-traumatic sleep disorders, etc.). (From Thorpy, Sleep Disorders Medicine, 1994, p187)

Conditions characterized by disturbances of usual sleep patterns or behaviors. Sleep disorders may be divided into three major categories: DYSSOMNIAS (i.e. disorders characterized by insomnia or hypersomnia), PARASOMNIAS (abnormal sleep behaviors), and sleep disorders secondary to medical or psychiatric disorders. (From Thorpy, Sleep Disorders Medicine, 1994, p187)

Periods of sleep manifested by changes in EEG activity and certain behavioral correlates; includes Stage 1: sleep onset, drowsy sleep; Stage 2: light sleep; Stages 3 and 4: delta sleep, light sleep, deep sleep, telencephalic sleep.
