The latest research on weight loss surgery is centered around diabetes and the ability of a weight loss operation to cure an individual with type 2 diabetes. A statement was recently released by the American Diabetes Association that strongly supported weight loss surgery as the primary source of cure for an individual with type 2 diabetes. For instance, if somebody has fairly significant type 2 diabetes, we may suggest the gastric bypass to them. Why? Because the gastric bypass is the most effective operation in treating type 2 diabetes.
