New research from a study published in the New England Journal of Medicine indicates that weight loss surgery can reverse and possibly cure diabetes.  Changes to the stomach and intestine lead to changes of the endocrine system that can regulate metabolic pathways and lead to diabetic improvements, as it did for the bariatric surgery patient featured in this clip.

In this video, Dr. Francesco Rubino of the New York Presbyterian Weill Cornell Medical Center discusses this new study and how it may affect how weight loss surgery is viewed going forward.
