Diabetes and Bypass Surgery

Hello everyone.

A while back I read about how getting bypass surgery can help some obese people get rid of their type 2 diabetes.

I found an article today that shows that this may be futile.

While it is effective most of the time, studies have been showing that 1 out of 5 people get the diabetes back later on.

Studies also showed that those who did not have recurring diabetes lost more weight and kept more off on average.  Those who have had diabetes before for more than five years were 3.8 times more likely for it to come back.

So, if you do have diabetes and are considering this kind of surgery, also keep in mind that the result may not be 100%.
