Bariatric Surgery: Is It The Proper Procedure To Heal Diabetes?

Researchers say that the most easiest method to heal diabetes without taking insulin or any kind of medication is Bariatric surgery which is a weight lose surgery.

This surgery, which shrinks the stomach and sometimes reroutes the intestines, has a lasting effect on the most common form of diabetes, and not just because patients lose weight. Studies have found that more than 75% of patients with this type of diabetes who undergo the surgery see their disease disappear. They can go on to live diabetes-free without insulin or other medicines.

But it is studied that Bariatric surgery can lead to serious complications such as nutritional deficiency. The death rate from the procedure is estimated to be between one in 100 and one in 1,000. An array of medicines, plus better diet and exercise, can treat diabetes effectively without invasive procedures.

“As a primary treatment for diabetes, it simply doesn’t measure up very well,” says Richard Hellman, president of the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists, specialists who treat diabetes.
