Advances & More News / USA: Penn Medicine, Could type 2 diabetes be managed with a simple outpatient procedure?

Gregory Ginsberg, a Penn Medicine doctor, is exploring a new frontier in the treatment of type 2 diabetes. Preliminary work done in South America and Europe has found that the outpatient, endoscopic procedure called duodenal mucosal resurfacing (DMR) reduced A1C, a long-term measure of blood sugar; reduced the need for insulin; and reduced liver fat in people with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. While not a cure, the procedure could allow patients with diabetes to take fewer drugs and is another sign, Ginsberg said, that cells in the duodenum play an important role in the body's metabolic communication system.
