The Los Angeles Times
reports that a recent clinical trial found that bariatric surgery
did far more to improve symptoms of diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol after three years than intensive treatment with drugs alone. This adds to the mounting evidence that bariatric treatment, especially Gastric Sleeve Surgery
is a powerful treatment option for sufferers of Type 2 diabetes. According to the leader of the trial, Director of the Cleveland Clinic’s Bariatric and Metabolic Institute Dr. Philip Schauer, even diabetes patients who don’t qualify as severely obese can benefit from weight loss treatment.
