This week a major medical study released shows just how effective a variety of weight loss surgeries are in regards to cutting down the risk for type 2 diabetes. Diabetes is always a major risk for overweight individuals and simple weight loss surgery has now been shown to dramatically cut the disk.
The report shows that over a 15 year period patients that underwent weight loss surgery were 80% less likely to develop type 2 diabetes down the road. This is an absolutely amazing result and doctors say that it is absolutely connected. Weight in general is a direct contributor to the development of type 2 diabetes and having a surgery to remove or reduce extra fat is effective in limiting risk.
Doctors have not yet begun recommending weight loss surgery to patients that are at high risk for type 2 diabetes, but after a follow up study is available many analysts feel that it will likely become quite common. Weight loss surgery is much less complicated or expensive than dealing with type 2 diabetes for life and it is also significantly less risky in the long run. Overall it is great to see that there may be a good alternative method to prevent the development of type 2 diabetes, obviously staying in shape and healthy is the first and foremost suggestion but this is a very good backup.
