Obesity has been linked as one of the major reasons for the rapid rise in the number of type II diabetes cases with experts predicting that a third of the population in United States are expected to suffer from the disease by 2050.

Undergoing weight loss surgeries may help reduce the number of diabetes cases after researchers in Italy found that patients who opted for such surgeries displayed remission of the condition in more than 80 percent of cases.

"In our opinion, 80 percent diabetes resolution is a dramatically excellent result, compared with results of a medical approach in which there's not diabetes resolution", lead researcher Dr Nicola Basso said.
