Evidence at Endocrinology conference - Gastric Bypass Superior

Bariatric Surgery in Diabetic Adults Improves Insulin Sensitivity Better Than Diet, Study Finds

And yet the last paragraph (see link) Dr Korner appears to have an attitude of "well, we will research this" rather that "we need to get THIS tool to the sick people who need it" Maybe I am overly sensitive, likely her statements are very selectively edited (ie., maybe it is the reporter's bias), but where is the call to action for the excellent tool we already have?

Are researchers only interested in supporting the pharmaceutical industry? I honestly don't think so, but you would be hard pressed to show evidence otherwise from this article.

If your endocrinologist, dietitian, insurer, or employer want to ignore evidence, you need to get this article to them by registered mail!
