Cardiovascular superior results
Your primary doc will soon be following the data in "Pay for Performance" Unfortunately, too many people die needlessly every day of disease that was avoidable with CURRENT evidence and techniques.
As Dr Adams says in the article - while surgery will always have some risk, in those with Type 2 Diabetes, the non-operative risk is actually much higher.
I am continuing to offer physician education in clinics, as well as at conferences, dinners, and elsewhere. Please encourage your primary and specialty providers to educate themselves!
I recently heard an esteemed local endocrinologist make the excuse "well, I don't know much about surgery". I am scandalized that one could purport to be an expert in a disease and be willfully ignorant of a therapy that could put over half of his patients into full remission. Yes, discrimination is that strong even among docs!
IF YOUR DOC HAD A PILL THIS EFFECTIVE, HE OR SHE WOULD KNOW EVERYTHING ABOUT IT! Don't let them hide.
