I also typically steer patients who suffer from severe Diabetes toward a gastric bypass.  In the early days of the Gastric Bypass, surgeons quickly realized that the surgery caused patient’s diabetes to improve dramatically and even resolve completely, often within a few days of surgery.  This finding has completely changed our view of Diabetes from an incurable, chronic disease to one that can be treated and even “cured.”  If your primary goal of surgery is to resolve your diabetes, then a Gastric Bypass offers your best chance since it is more effective at normalizing your blood sugar than a sleeve gastrectomy.
