Weight-Loss Surgeries May Beat Standard Treatments for Diabetes

"Surgery dramatically reduces blood sugar levels, and very often surgical patients can stop taking the medications used for diabetes."

Rubino and his colleagues from Rome's Catholic University report their findings in the March 26 online edition of the New England Journal of Medicine, to coincide with a planned presentation on the findings at the American College of Cardiology annual meeting in Chicago. Cleveland Clinic researchers report similar findings in the same journal and plan to presen
