He reported on twenty years of data evaluating 2,010 bariatric surgeries with 2,037 non-surgical individuals who received medical lifestyle or treatment modification for unhealthy weight. Type 2 diabetes has always been considered a persistent, lifelong disease, but the long-term data show remission in 70 % of patients after two years of follow-up, he says. Thirty % are still in remission 15 years after bariatric surgery. Even more remarkable, 20 years out, we’ve seen that bariatric medical procedures has reduced new instances of diabetes by 80 % among obese individuals who didn’t have the disease in the beginning of the research. Dr. Sj-str-m concludes that the surgery’s preventive effect seems to be even stronger and more long-long lasting than its ability to maintain long-term remission. Striking Equally, the incidence of brand-new cardiovascular events – – either coronary attack or stroke – – has been at least thirty % lower among postsurgical individuals than their conservatively treated counterparts.‘Sexual orientation appears to be determined extremely early in life,’ said study lead author Tuck Ngun, a postdoctoral researcher at the David Geffen School of Medicine of the University of California, Los Angeles. ‘Based on these findings, we can say that environmental elements may play a role in sexual orientation.’ But he doesn’t mean the sociable environment where we grow up, such as how we’re treated by our parents. ‘Instead, we are referring to differences that the twins could have experienced in the womb,’ Ngun explained.
