Medicine's best obesity treatment is also its most misunderstood

Americans keep dieting to lose weight, but bariatric surgery is the most effective tool out there.

Thought this was a really good article.

Very Interesting!

I wish they would study the correlation between Type II diabetes remission and the RNY. It seems, from what I've seen around here, that this is a BIG health benefit, and I just haven't seen enough put out there for people to know about this.

This is a good study.

Researchers looked at 4434 type II diabetics who had RNY. 68.2% of them saw their diabetes go into remission within 5 years of WLS. Of those people, 35.1% redeveloped diabetes within 5 years; the people with relapse tended to have had diabetes for longer and their blood sugar was poorly controlled before surgery.

I saw this in Facebook. Sadly, inspite of the evidence that shows the validity of wls, people were still commenting on how awful it was and that it was ineffective/dangerous. Siiigh.

If people really understood and accepted scientific evidence, we would all be 100% vaccinated, nobody would bat an eye at genetically-modified produce, chiropractors would be laughed out of business, and people wouldn't launch homemade rockets to "prove" that the Earth is flat.

I've largely given up hope at this point.

We also wouldn't have people arguing climate change, nor a president that has the intelligence of a melted jell-o mold.
