Surgical Cure for Diabetes?

Interesting stuff, but, if this gains more public interest, I can’t help but wonder what will happen to that whole diet and exercise thingy?

Just an interesting article I thought I’d share.

Too bad people born with type 1 Diabetes can’t do shit about it.

Agreed. It’s also too bad that this will do nothing to correct the poor dietary/lifestyle choices that got them into that mess in the first place. With such a quick fix available, I wonder how many people will slip right back?

According to the article the diabetes disappeared over the course of 2 years following the surgery. So you get surgery, lose weight, blood sugar returns to normal, and no more diabetes.

I’m going to go out on a limb and suggest that maybe going from being a fatass to not-a-fatass is what is responsible for this, not the surgery itself.

So instead of spending $17,000 - $20,000 on a surgery, do it the right way.

This kinda pisses me off.
