The number of people suffering from type 2 diabetes has risen dramatically in the last decade. Current figures estimate that around 32 million Americans have the disease,1 and a further 88 million have prediabetes,2 which means their blood sugar levels are at a high level and damage may already have begun.

One of the biggest risk factors for diabetes is excess weight.

The good news is that losing that excess weight and lowering your blood sugar can significantly reduce the effects of type 2 diabetes, even to the point where you no longer need medication. In particular, bariatric surgery has produced excellent outcomes for many people previously suffering from diabetes.

To find out why weight-loss surgery is so effective in the fight against diabetes and how it could help you, read this infographic. When you’re ready to learn more about the process and take the first step toward a diabetes-free life, contact us at (713) 339-1353.
