Weight loss surgery: The only cure for Diabetes

Based on current medical literature, a Diabetic diet doesn't cure Diabetes. In fact, weight-loss surgery is the ONLY cure for Diabetes. Fortunately, LAPSF's physicians staff and on-site dietitian are experts in explaining the health risk of Diabetes, recommending a non-invasive weight-loss bariatric bypass surgery procedure, and discussing the benefits of a healthy recipe for diabetes patients.

Post Operative Results

Diabetes can be cured in 80% of patients and improved in 90% of patients. After surgery and following a Diabetes diet plan, most patients are off all of their Diabetes medications or use significantly reduced medication in the first three months after surgery. Blood sugar glucose levels and Hemoglobin A1c levels usually return to normal or near normal.

A post-surgery Diabetes diet plan can be extremely helpful because morbid obesity can cause numerous and serious health problems.
