For those of us who are DS post-ops, we’re trying hard not to yell out loud, “DUH! Yes! It can! Hello?!”
I think what we sometimes forget is that other people don’t necessarily know that the DS has AMAZING results with the elimination of metabolic syndrome. (This article refers to a study that showed “98 percent of the biliopancreatic diversion patients achieved complete remission of their T2D.” That’s phenomenal, by the way. NOTHING else shows that type of result. As in NOTHING.)
Hence our love of Dr. B and his foresight in embracing just the “switch” part of the DS for severe metabolic syndrome – and specifically, Type II Diabetics. The studies out of Europe support the same type of results as that referenced in this article. Dr. B’s results? Better.
So amazingly cool.
I – for one – do NOT miss diabetes.
That recognition is finally coming out here in the States about the validity of the DS as a mighty weapon against Type II Diabetes is nothing short of phenomenal!
