Can diabetes be a complication of weight loss surgery?

No. I can't think of any instant where a successful weight loss surgery would result in a patient developing diabetes. Quite the contrary, we commonly see diabetes resolve after weight loss surgery. If a complication such as a leak occurred and the patient subsequently developed some type of organ failure, then it may be possible but this would be a complication developing from a primary complication.
Unlikely. Usually diabetes goes away after bariatric surgery.
Calorie intake. Diabetes if u did not have before the weight loss surgery and noticed only later means either your calorie intake esp sugar and carb might be higher or you have Insulin resistance due to hidden food allergy with inflammation to pancreas order analysis for food allergies get tested.
