Weight loss surgery cuts diabetes risk
Results published in the Lancet Diabetes and Endocrinology that weight reduction trial involving 5000 obese patients will limit symptoms of type 2 diabetes. This study focussed on 1267 obese adults after bariactric weigh loss surgery, and compared them with 1267 obese patients that did not receive the surgery. There were 38 cases of diabetes after surgery compared with 177 in people left as they were - a reduction of nearly 80%.

Weight Loss And Long Term Stability
A person with a metabolic disorder will store weight in key areas of the body. Once the body learns to accumulate energy as adipose tissue (fat tissue), it is very difficult to stop this mechanism and return the body to its original state. In other words, the patient starts suffering from a chronic condition. This is like having a chronic condition such as hypertension, diabetes or a thyroid problem.
Generally, the process begins by the patient loosing the ability to feel full. They over eat as the body does not receive the signs of being full from the regulatory centres (the Hypothalamus gland) in order to stop eating. As the body cannot get rid of the unnecessary food, accumulation of excess body fat takes place. Once this mechanism starts, it is very difficult to turn off.
The regulatory systems begin to loose their effectiveness as years go by, and eating small quantities of food may produce a remarkable weight increase. At the same time, a series of clinical disorders begin to arise: arterial or venous thrombosis, and metabolic conditions (gout, diabetes).
