Obesity surgery helps stop diabetes

Obesity surgery may keep diabetes at bay for 15 years.

That's according to a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

The study suggests obesity surgery may keep diabetes in remission even after 15 years in some patients.

35 out of 115 patients remained diabetes-free 15 years after surgery.

20 years after surgery, about 25 patients remained free of diabetes complications including eye and kidney problems.
