Bariatric breakthrough for Diabetes got my attention as for anyone that has type 2 diabetes the only tools that were available to you were either at your own hand you either had to manage a low calorie diet with or without the aid of a weight loss company or dietician. You may have even looked at pre-prepared meals delivered to your home.
Other than this the only other option would of been bariatric surgery which some people balk at the thought of being operated on to lose weight now there seems to be another option for you to consider.
It is all about options and if you have been considering bariatric surgery to help regain control of weight and related health issues? Hold your horses. The EndoBarrier, a device that mimics the infinitely more invasive surgery, has recently been approved for use in Australia. The device is implanted in the stomach via the mouth. As with more traditional bariatric surgery, it allows food to bypass a critical part of the intestince, inhibiting absorption and helping people feel full longer.
For those who struggle to manage type 2 diabetes using traditional methods and medicine, the EndoBarrier could be a godsend. It is expected to be made available to patients in early 2012.
