Has Anyone Had Weight Loss Surgery To "cure" Diabetes?

I have been told that after having this surgery I would no longer have to treat my diabetes. However I am wondering if I would be trading one set of problems for another.

Do We Need To Manage Our Expectations When Living With Diabetes?

Do We Need To Manage Our Expectations When Living With Diabetes?

The other day I was watching some show, characters were all excited when one said “Slow Down – you need to manage your expectations”.

For me the first step was to accept that everything had changed and life would never be the same again. I had a mourning period before I accepted this.

Can 1 Large Carb Load Make Your Diabetes Worse Permanently?
