Here is a testimonial from a patient from Ontario, Canada, who had the surgery done in Costa Rica in a hospital part of the MediTravel International network.
Type 2 diabetes is one of the fastest growing diseases in North America. In Canada with more than 60,000 new cases yearly. Nine out of ten people with diabetes have type 2 diabetes. It is estimated that close to two million Canadian adults have diabetes. One third of these people are unaware that they have the disease. Diabetes is the seventh leading cause of death in Canada and the cost of diabetes is estimated to be up to $9 billion a year.
Weight loss surgery can make a big difference for people with type 2 diabetes. For some people, blood sugar levels get back to normal after surgery. Diabetes can be cured.That could mean you need less medication or none at all.
Research shows improvements in type 2 diabetes after metabolic surgery. One long-term study tracked 400 people with type 2 diabetes. Six years after bariatric surgery, 62% showed no signs of diabetes. They also had better blood pressure, cholesterol, and triglyceride levels.
In comparison, only 6% to 8% of people who took medicine, but didn’t have surgery, showed similar results.
If you’re thinking about it, and you’re ready to make big changes to keep up the results, you’ll want to know if the metabolic surgery is right for you.
