Comment on: Predictors of diabetes relapse after metabolic surgery in Asia
Obesity is a strong modifiable risk factor for type-2-diabetes (T2D). Although the association between the two conditions is well-established, the interplay of organ-specific adiposity, hepatic and peripheral insulin resistance, pancreatic beta-cell mass and function, and onset and severity of T2D vary enormously between individuals. Importantly, variations in adiposity patterns between individuals of different races/ethnicities and baseline, and possible subsequent changes of, pancreatic beta-cell mass and function point to a genetic predisposition in the pathophysiology of T2D(1, 2).

Comment on: Pancreatic exocrine insufficiency after bariatric surgery
Chronic abdominal complaints after bariatric surgery are common. The mechanisms behind are still unclear. In part, these symptoms could be explained by insufficient secretion of pancreatic enzymes.

Comment on: Fatty acid binding protein 4 (FABP4) regulates pancreatic cancer cell proliferation via activation of nuclear factor E2-related factor 2 (NRF2)
The study from Wirth et al. investigates the role of the fatty acid binding protein 4 (FABP4) in pancreatic cancer. They propose that FABP4, a protein from the adipose tissues, which is increased in obesity, activates the nuclear factor E2-related factor 2 (NRF2) resulting in proliferation of pancreatic cancer cells. The data were generated using human (Panc-1) and mouse (Pan02) pancreatic cell lines in vitro. The authors demonstrated with administration of FABP4 and an inactive version of FABP4 (R126Q) that the pancreatic cancer cell lines have an increased proliferation by promoting the switch from the G1 cell cycle phas...

Comment on: Factors affecting relapse of type 2 diabetes after bariatric surgery in Sweden 2007 – 2015: A registry-based cohort study.
There is perhaps no disease that is as chronically and systematically undertreated as obesity. Despite being a leading cause of preventable mortality, there remains significant stigma around obesity treatment. Bariatric surgery is therefore often viewed as a last resort for patients who have failed every other weight loss strategy available. Unfortunately, this treatment strategy has significant consequences: fewer than 1% of patients ever undergo bariatric surgery,1 and among those who do many spend years of their life suffering from obesity-associated comorbidities such as type 2 diabetes (T2DM).
