Study shows weight loss surgery reduces risk of type 2 diabetes

  • A new British study says that surgery of weight loss greatly reduces the chances of developing type 2 diabetes, media reports said.

    Doctors tracked around 5,000 people to examine the results of the operation. The results show type 2 diabetes reduced by 80% in people who had undergone the surgery.

    The results appear in the Lancet Diabetes and Endocrinology journal.

    The NHS may offer the surgery to thousands of people to stave off type 2 diabetes.
