Bariatric surgery.: Bariatric surgery is a great option for weight loss. Reduced all-cause mortality compared to non-surgical weight loss. Better chance of achievement of HgbA1C < 7, LDL < 100 and systolic BP < 130 as noted by the American Diabetes Association. Better chance of long term sustainable weight maintenance. Low risk of complications in the hands of an experienced surgeon.
