RE: [IP] Surgery for Type 2 Diabetes.

The study suggest that the operation cures diabetes within 2 to 3 days after
it. It indicates that obesity is not the cause of diabetes.

All well and good, but the surgery may kill you, and you will likely suffer

of supplements for the rest of your life.

In my opinion, the cure is much worse than the disease.
