SpiritSeeker thanks for sharing that info., sad true but helpful.

I'm not 'good' with pros reporting benefits with this type of surgery.

I was a diabetic - following atkins got it down but went hypoglycemic... did his fat fast for 2 days and it fixed that...I can not loose as even that did not get me into ketosis.. but I am not a diabetic anymore A1c is 4.9......... the thyroid site on about.com talked about HCG for us - we have a very hard time loosing and I was stuck for 2 years where normal people would have lost- and I have dropped 30 pounds since dec... on maintenance for 7 weeks to stabilize the recent 15 pound loss.. but I am finally loosing.. on this part I do atkins no starches no sugars.. then you add them in to see if you have a gain by adding them back slowly after 3 weeks..
my cousin died from gastric bypass- 2 other people did it- 1 did ok.. the other threw up all the time from over eating... my friend in MD is going to do it in May and I am so worried- she says she needs to for diabetes out of control ... sad

My sugars were in the 160's or worse, before I started
this program and they are almost always under 110 in
the morning before breakfast.

I've seen people do it with diet and exercise as well. They must be really motivated.

I know losing weight, exercise & watching what you eat very
carefully can really help some people.

it's working for me, so I know it can be done.

I'm not sure everyone who loses weight, exercise
and really eats properly can do it, but I have a
feeling a large % can if they are willing to
get trained & do it

"The substudy results extend the findings from our initial 12-month report that showed bariatric surgery can eliminate the need for diabetes medications in many obese patients with uncontrolled diabetes,"
emoticon Now I have to wonder if it can be restored some other way.
