There IS a cure for diabetes. Bariatric (weight loss) surgery using the techniques called the gastric sleeve for obese people and the gastric bypass for non-obese people is a revolutionary new cure for Type 2 diabetes. (People categorized as obese have a Body Mass Index — BMI — above 30. Calculating your BMI is easy: just click here). Either surgical intervention will do more than just put diabetes into remission — both have been proven to cure Type 2 diabetes forever with an 89% success rate!
No more painful, daily blood tests; no more costly spending for the rest of your life on expensive drugs, diets or other life-long medical therapies which allow only 50% of patients to reach target hemoglobin A1c, lipid and blood pressure levels.
Look great, lose weight and cure diabetes. Live a longer, happier, more fruitful life. This is by far the greatest gift you can give to yourself and to your loved ones.
This CBS 60 Minutes video (above) about the effects of weight loss surgery on diabetes is an eye-opener. Watch and listen carefully. If you are seriously overweight and/or suffer from Type 2 diabetes, it could be one of the most important 15 minutes you’ll ever spend. Fifteen minutes could add 15 years to your life!
CURE DIABETES WellCare Costs
For the very attractive price of UNDER USD $14,000.00, Americana WellCareCR offers eight to ten day Bariatric Surgery packages: 1) gastric sleeve surgery to cure Type 2 diabetes and/or to induce weight loss in obese patients, or 2) gastric bypass surgery to cure Type 2 diabetes in non-obese patients. Both surgeries are performed by eminent bariatric surgeon Dr. Jacobo Zafrani at Hospital Clínica Bíblica in San José, Costa Rica.
The peripheral effects can also be beneficial and extremely enjoyable. No more sleep apnea. Cancer risks reduced. Most formerly obese women will definitely find that their sexual desire, sexual response and sexual satisfaction will all have increased following bariatric surgery. Weight loss surgery may give very heavy guys their mojo back. Researchers followed 97 morbidly obese men who had bariatric surgery and found that their sexual performance — which had been marked by lack of desire, erectile dysfunction and ejaculatory problems — significantly improved after they shed an average of 66 percent of their weight. What’s more, the amount of weight loss correlated with the extent of sexual improvement.
It is also much more cost-effective to treat diabetes with bariatric surgery than with conventional medical therapy. Non-surgical therapies that only manage Type 2 diabetes can cost up to $33,000 per year for the entire life of the patient. In comparison, the cost of bariatric surgery — gastric sleeve or gastric bypass — is usually less than the cost of one year’s worth of diabetes treatment.
Pills, herbs and ‘natural’ treatments do not work, and are likely scams. Health Canada is very clear: ‘Any product that claims to be a miracle cure for diabetes is a fraud that could cheat you of time, money and most importantly, your health… There is no pill, herb or “all natural” health product that will miraculously cure diabetes.’
The U.S. National Institutes of Health recommends bariatric surgery for obese people with a BMI of at least 40, and for people with BMI>35 and serious coexisting medical conditions such as diabetes.
If you suffer from diabetes symptoms, you may be a candidate for one of these safe surgical interventions performed by Dr. Jacobo Zafrani, specialist in Laparoscopic, General & Bariatric Surgery at the internationally acclaimed and accredited Hospital Clínica Bíblica in San José, Costa Rica.

BARIATRIC (WEIGHT LOSS) SURGERY — WHY DOES IT WORK?
To be frank, nobody really quite knows. There are many ideas that are being studied. What we do know is that when people with Type 2 diabetes have bariatric — gastric sleeve or gastric bypass — surgery, their diabetes symptoms often disappear within days.

Doctors know that bariatric surgery works at reversing Type 2 diabetes; but they are still not absolutely certain yet of exactly HOW it works, although studies are being made and conclusions drawn. Also, they have to do retrograde research to find out WHY it works.

After bariatric surgery, the remission of Type 2 diabetes is very quick. As the cause of diabetes is not yet known, from a purely clinical point of view, the surgical remission of Type 2 diabetes — which occurs without taking medication again — is the closest thing to a cure.
Some theories do exist, including the idea that shunting food directly to the lower intestine stimulates a substance called glucagon-like peptide 1, which can increase insulin production. Another theory suggests that hormones that prompt hunger may be dulled by rearranging the anatomy, so if they crave less sugar, people may be able to manage their blood sugar levels better.
Other questions remain regarding the role that bariatric surgery can play in treating, and potentially curing, Type 2 diabetes. For starters, the ideal type of bariatric surgery for treating diabetes is not yet known. What is exactly right for you — whether gastric sleeve, gastric bypass, lap band, etc. — is something you and the bariatric surgeon will discuss and decide. All of the studies have looked at different types of bariatric surgeries, and all surgeries seem to work.
Whatever the reason, Type 2 diabetes recurrence after bariatric surgery is uncommon. Medical research indicates that in most cases bariatric surgery can completely eliminate all manifestations of Type 2 diabetes. An article in the March 2009 issue of The American Journal of Medicine reported that researchers who combined data from 621 studies worldwide involving 135,246 patients between 1990 and April 2006 found that 78.1% of Type 2 diabetic patients had complete resolution (i.e., returned to normal blood sugar levels and had no symptoms of diabetes), and that diabetes was improved or resolved in 86.6% of all patients following weight-loss surgery. (The primary risk factor for Type 2 diabetes is obesity, and 90% of all patients with Type 2 diabetes are overweight or obese.)
Writing in the article, Henry Buchwald, MD, PhD, Department of Surgery, University of Minnesota, states: ‘This systematic review and meta-analysis demonstrate that bariatric surgery has a powerful therapy effect in morbidly obese persons with Type 2 diabetes; 82% of patients had resolution of the clinical and laboratory manifestations of diabetes in the first two years after surgery, and 62% remained free of diabetes more than two years after surgery (80% and 75% for the total group). Randomized clinical trials comparing surgery and medical therapies for Type 2 diabetes are urgently needed. Considering the potential benefits for millions of people, such trials should assess the risk/benefit ratio of surgery in less obese (BMI 30-35 kg/m2) populations, as well as in the morbidly obese (BMI>35 kg/m2) population’.
