Introduction: obesity is a serious growing medical problem in type 1 diabetes mellitus (DM1). Insulin replacement is the only available therapy for these patients with DM1 and the main problems associated with it are hypoglycemia and weight gain. Bariatric surgery (BS) showed improvement in glycemic control in type 2 but only few cases of DM1 have been reported. Objectives: to evaluate changes in metabolic parameters in obese DM1 patients who underwent BS.
