Has Anyone Had Weight Loss Surgery To "cure" Diabetes?
A DiabetesTeam Member asked a question 💭

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.

Looking For Medication That Wil Help With Weight Loss
A DiabetesTeam Member asked a question 💭

My Bariatric doctor wants me to change the medication that will help lose weight I just wonder if there is any in pill form. I am on Glipizide now but my doctor says that it causes weight gain.I am not good with needles. Just taking my sugars I have to close my eyes.
