Default Diet critical to improving type 2 diabetes after bariatric surgery

(Lower carb diet is what help "reverse" diabetes after bariatric surgery, but they insist on low calories, that have very poor success rates)

Diet shown to be critical factor in improving type 2 diabetes after bariatric surgery - News Release - UT Southwestern

DALLAS – April 2, 2013 – Patients with type 2 diabetes who consume a diet identical to the strict regimen followed after bariatric surgery are just as likely to see a reduction in blood glucose levels as those who undergo surgery, researchers at UT Southwestern Medical Center have found.

“For years, the question has been whether it is the bariatric surgery or a change in diet that causes the diabetes to improve so rapidly after surgery,” said Dr. Ildiko Lingvay, assistant professor of internal medicine and first author of the study published online in Diabetes Care. “We found that the reduction of patients’ caloric intake following bariatric surgery is what leads to the major improvements in diabetes, not the surgery itself.”

Finally they realize this. If the people had LCHFed it before they probably wouldn't have needed the surgery.

Wow.. I have 2 cousins who went through this. One of them is still a diabetic, or a diabetic again. I know.. She was always diabetic. It's just that she went back to eating the way she did before. The other cousin showed the symptoms of diabetes before the surgery. And she lost all of the weight. I hope she doesn't go back to eating the way she did before. Neither will listen to the very low-carb/high-fat diet.
