Who qualifies for / can have bariatric surgery? NICE (national institute for care excellence) guidance states that patients with a BMI of 35 or more with an associated co-morbidity (e.g. high blood pressure or OSA), qualify for surgery. If patients have a BMI of 40 or more then they qualify as well. Patients with Type 2 diabetes, qualify for bariatric surgery with a BMI of 30 or more. Patients from Asia qualify for bariatric surgery at a BMI of 2.5 less than non Asians, due to their increased risks of harm from being overweight and the associated co-morbidities.
