where people touched by diabetes help each other.

I'm thinking about getting Bariatric surgery because of my weight - my doctor is really pushing for because I've gained close to 90 pounds in the past two years. I've got type 2 diabetes and was just wondering what others opinions were.

Weigh the options between that and the lap band. They both carry risks. You can regulate your weight by cutting your carbs down low, not delete them but, less intake. Stay away from breads, potatoes, eat more chicken, fish and pork. Add a little more time for exercise. I lost 70 pounds in six months and I was regulated by my doctor to ensure everything was fine.
