Doctors began noticing a side effect of weight-loss surgeries such as LapBand and Gastric Bypass is the ability of Type 2 diabetes patients to fully reverse their degenerative disease. A recent study published in New England Journal of Medicine compared diabetic patients that only received lifestyle counseling and medications to patients treated with only bariatric surgery and discovered the latter ( bariatric surgery recipients) were much more likely to eliminate their diabetes while simultaneously lowering their blood pressure and cholesterol.

  • Hello, guest
  • These medical inventions should be given away in developing countries as quickly as humanly possible. We have the power to end human suffering but choose not to. It doesnt make sense.
  • I find it hard to believe that absolutely ZERO mainstream economist have considered the actual fact that such medical breakthroughs can be an insurance industry killer. Are these so called mainstream economists not mentioning this because they secretly want such things to happen? We are becoming like the rest of the world and will have to learn to miss the free(dum) as it slowly vanishes. I know everyone hoping for medical inventions/cures does too.
  • I think Cyclizine the medicine for the relief from nausea is the greatest invention ever
