Materials and Methods: Between January 2017 and September 2017, 22 patients have undergone transit bipartition with sleeve gastrectomy or TLB-SG surgery in our clinic. Patients' body mass index, excess body mass index loss, and HOMA-IR were calculated before and after the surgical operation. The values of c-peptide, HgA1C, insulin, blood sugar, albumin, Hg, urea, creatinine, calcium, total cholesterol, 25-hydroxy vitamin D, and vitamin B 12 were evaluated retrospectively. Results: Vitamin and mineral deficiency, malnutrition, and anemia were not observed in both groups during the follow-up process. The operation time was shorter in the TLB-SG operation. Both groups were found to be effective at the expected level in terms of weight loss, diabetes remission, and improvement. Conclusions: TLB-SG is a more effective and simpler method, becoming a candidate for being the most frequently performed surgical operation, in the field of metabolic surgery.
