Canadian doctors may have found a way to use gastric surgery to treat severe obesity, a procedure that could help people with type 2 diabetes . Gastric bypass surgery is already regarded as one of the most important potential treatments in chronic disease since insulin was discovered.

Dr. Mehran Anvari reportedly commented: “This is at the moment the only treatment being evaluated as a potential cure for diabetes .”
