Was just reading a paragraph in the A.A.R.P. Magazine this month about a new medical procedure for Type II diabetics. It likely was the result of research into why our DS procedure almost always results in a quick "cure" for diabetes. The new procedure is called "Duodenal Mucousal Resurfacing" .. It basically involves the surgical burning away of the outer layer (lining) of the first 4" of the duodenum segment of the small intestine. As a result, "much better" control of diabetes is achieved and within 6 months post-op most patients who were taking injectible meds (e.g. insulin) beforehand no longer needed them ... What a blessing for Type II diabetics who are not candidates for WLS (or who do not wi****). Help spread the word!
Frank talk about the DS / "All I ever wanted to be was thin, like that Rolling Stones dude ... "
