The Diabetes Myth

Myth: Weight loss is less effective in managing diabetes than diabetic treatments.

Truth: This is false.

According to a study in the New England Journal of Medicine, bariatric surgery, known as weight-loss surgery, has been effective in controlling glycemic levels, reducing cardiovascular risk, and improving a patient’s quality of life.

Specifically, five years post-surgery, individuals in the surgery group illustrated improvements in quality of life, reduction in weight, triglyceride levels, cholesterol levels, and insulin dependency.
