Bariatric surgery and diabetes

Diabetes and obesity have a long and cozy relationship. Generally speaking, the more body weight that an individual possesses in the form of adipose tissue, the higher the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Unfortunately, the prevalence of obesity in the Western world, especially in the United States, had been on the increase for some time, though it thankfully hit a plateau between 2003 and 2007.
