Tunisia is just a slim piece of North Africa’s enormous horizontal existence — but it’s providing tourists a colossal undertone of pleasant Mediterranean beaches, aromatic sea breezes, and unbelievable indulgences of exploration.

As Tunisia is refashioning itself as an ambitiously modern destination, the top weight loss surgeons in Tunisia are also providing a powerful, profound presence.

Weight loss clinics in Sousse are dedicated to providing compassionate care and innovative surgical solutions for those who are seriously overweight. The clinics represent a combination of expertise and recognition widely respected across the globe.

Working together — the goal is for patients traveling to Sousse for weight loss guidance to experience a healthier lifestyle and a positive outlook on the future.

Sleeve Gastrectomy

Gastric Bypass

The clinic in Sousse gives you the greatest success in weight loss surgery with dramatic results, the fewest post-surgical complications, and ongoing care from an expert staff.

Weight Loss Surgery and Diabetes

Obese patients who undergo weight loss surgery often see their diabetes improve, but does the surgery helps prevent diabetes in the first place?

A new study suggests that weight loss surgery does help prevent diabetes, but experts say the data still doesn’t give a convincing response.

In the study, reserachers at King's College in London used electronic health records from the U.K. Clinical Practice Research Datalink to compare 2,167 obese adults without diabetes who had the weight-loss surgery and another 2,167 individuals matched for age, sex, body mass index, and blood glucose control who did not have surgery or other obesity treatments.

The participants were followed for an average of nearly three years. The results — translated to an 80 percent lower risk of developing diabetes for the surgery patients, even after the researchers took smoking habits, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol into consideration.

Patients in the group had one of three procedures — laparoscopic banding, gastric bypass, or sleeve gastrectomy, as reported in The Lancet Diabetes & Endocrinology.

“This study, together with earlier results from a study in Sweden, shows that weight loss surgery in people with severe obesity is associated with a substantial reduction in the risk of type 2 diabetes,” Dr. Martin Gulliford stated.

He added, “The study adds to increasing evidence that weight loss surgery may be effective at reducing the adverse health impacts of severe obesity.”
