Background: Diabetes mellitus (DM) is one of the most common non-communicable diseases worldwide. The present prospective study was conducted to define the efficacy of mini gastric bypass (MGB) in controlling Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Subjects and Methods: From February 2014 to February 2015, 30 consecutive adult patients with T2DM underwent MGB at the Department of Surgery, Faculty of Medicine, University of Alexandria, Egypt. Twenty-six patients (86.7%) were female and 4 (13.3%) were male. The mean age was 40.70 ± 8.57 years and the mean body mass index (BMI) was 49.76 ± 6.61.
