Bariatric surgery may eliminate need for diabetes medication

Diabetes has become an epidemic in the United States, with the number of cases tripling over the last three decades. Most of those cases are Type 2 diabetes, which is linked to obesity and can lead to serious medical issues that range from heart disease to renal failure, blindness, and more. People living with obesity and Type 2 diabetes have tried all kinds of approaches to losing the weight and living healthier lives, but often with little success. Diet, exercise, and even medication have in many cases failed to produce substantial results. Many people with Type 2 diabetes take 10 to 12 medications on a daily basis, but for many that regimen seems to hardly put a dent in their condition. This is not just a matter of self-esteem, or even quality of life; Type 2 diabetes kills, and it is this grim reality that looms over so many people struggling with diabetes in this country. There is hope, however. Bariatric surgery can not only provide dramatic weight loss, but also reduce or even completely eliminate the need for diabetes medication. At Dr. Feiz & Associates, a reputable surgery center in Beverly Hills, Dr. Michael Feiz has seen this amazing development with his own eyes.

Dr. Feiz brings to the table a wealth of knowledge and experience in the field of bariatric surgery, and has a proven track record with patients suffering from Type 2 diabetes. He has earned a great deal of trust within the community at large, so it is with considerable authority that he is able to assert the following claim: his patients have not only succeeded in losing weight, but have also seen dramatic reversals in their Type 2 diabetes. Indeed, within a year of undergoing laparoscopic gastric bypass or sleeve gastrectomy surgery, a large portion of Dr. Feiz's patients find that their Type 2 diabetes has gone into complete remission.

Recent studies published in the New England Journal of Medicine support what Dr. Feiz has been observing in his own patients for years now. In fact, these studies conclude that weight loss surgery can actually be more effective than the standard diabetes treatments. It is no surprise, then, that so many people still struggling with Type 2 diabetes are inquiring about Dr. Feiz's surgical techniques.
