Objective We recently showed that Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) reduces risks of mortality, cardiovascular death and myocardial infarction in obese individuals compared with matched patients with diabetes mellitus (DM). We have examined changes in risk factors after RYGB, with the aim of explaining these effects. Research design and methods We matched (1:1) 6132 RYGB patients with DM reported to the Scandinavian Obesity Surgery Register with patients who had not undergone RYGB, based on sex, age, body mass index (BMI) and time, and assessed effects 2007-2014. We used causal mediation analysis to study effects mediated through changes to BMI and risk factors at 1 year based on Cox proportional hazards models. Results Baseline BMI was 42 kg/m2. Following RYGB, the lowest BMI was observed after 2 years (mean 31.9 kg/m2), and hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) after 1 year (mean 6.32% (45.6 mmol/mol)). Maximum high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol was observed after 3-5 years (mean 1.46 mmol/L). Differences in BMI, HbA1c and HDL between the groups were statistically significant up to 6 years, and 2-3 years for low-density lipoprotein (LDL) and blood pressure, despite fewer glucose-lowering, hypertensive and lipid-lowering treatments. The causal mediation analysis suggested that RYGB has a positive effect on mortality risk, mainly by means of weight reduction (as opposed to changes to the risk factors analyzed). Conclusions Improvements in risk factors might contribute to the reduction of mortality risk after RYGB in obese individuals with type 2 diabetes, but the main effect seems to be mediated through a decrease in BMI, which could serve as a proxy for several mechanisms. © 2017, BMJ Publishing Group.
