Weight-Loss Surgery could Ease Diabetes and help with Heart Disease
According to the latest research, weight loss surgery could ease out the risk of diabetes and help in overcoming heart diseases. The risk was reduced by 40% and the patient would be free of these complications and can avoid an early death.
Weight reduction surgery also decreases the risks of reverse diabetes, eliminate sleep apnea, improve fertility, ease joint pain and pressure, and relieve symptoms of depression.
