For instance, a recent study published in the Journal of the Ama discovered that 73 percent of these with diabetes who combined the gastric banding procedure with conventional therapy achieved remission and were able to discontinue their diabetes medication. Only 13 percent of those who received only conventional therapy went into remission. "We've seen better still numbers along with other procedures as well," remarks Dr. Mishra, "which strengthens the situation to lose weight surgery in general."
