BARIATRIC SURGERY FOR DIABETES

BARIATRIC SURGERY FOR DIABETES. Let’s think about it!!! Weight loss is the most effective treatment for persons with diabetes and obesity. This is most safely done though and intensive nutrition weight loss program. I have treated over 5000 patients with diabetes and obesity and many have achieve remission of their diabetes and even gone 20 years after stopping insulin while on our Simple Diet and Simple Lifetime diet. The risks and complications of bariatric surgery are scary. With gastric bypass surgery one in 63 patients die within one year and 40% have complications in the first year. Lap-band surgery has lower death rates but more frequent complications. So, I always tell my patients they need to try diet for weight loss seriously before subjecting themselves to the scary risks of surgery. See my blog on Bariatric Surgery References and Chapter 11 of my book, The Simple Diet for details and references. Best, Nutdoc
