“Recently, 45 international medical and scientific societies, including the American Diabetes Association, called for bariatric surgery to become a standard option for Type 2 diabetes treatment. The procedure, until now seen as a last resort, involves stapling, binding or removing part of the stomach to help people shed weight. It costs USD $11,500 to $26,000, which many insurance plans won’t pay and which doesn’t include the costs of office visits for maintenance or postoperative complications. And up to 17 percent of patients will have complications, which can include nutrient deficiencies, infections and intestinal blockages.
It is nonsensical that we’re expected to prescribe these techniques to our patients while the medical guidelines don’t include another better, safer and far cheaper method: a diet low in carbohydrates.” Dr. Sarah Hallberg
The proof of Low Carbohydrate diets for preventing, managing, and potentially reversing Type 2 diabetes is in the blood glucose.
