Weight Loss Surgery

When nothing else works, surgery may help some people get control of their diabetes.

By the dLife Editors

Morbid obesity is a chronic condition that puts people at risk for many serious medical problems. The condition is sometimes difficult to treat through the traditional methods of diet and exercise alone. Weight-loss surgery, also called bariatric surgery, is another treatment option. These procedures facilitate weight loss by restricting food intake, and, in some cases, interrupting the digestive process. Weight-loss surgery may also help manage diabetes.
