Default Significant weight loss has same metabolic effects on diabetics from surgery or diet

Something I think many LCers have thought for a long time. Brief snippet:

Quote:
The research was published this week in The New England Journal of Medicine

Klein’s team of researchers from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis found in their recent study that it is not necessarily the surgery itself that drives metabolic improvements, including remission of diabetes, but rather the weight loss after surgery that creates this effect, according to the news release.

“We found gastric bypass surgery improves metabolic function by causing weight loss. There were no differences in the reduction of diabetes medications or in the rate of diabetes remission between surgery patients and those who lost equivalent amounts of weight through diet alone.”

As I have said, I could get the results of bariatric surgery by putting people in low carb jail. And it would be healthier for them.
