But the new report has found that patients with Type 2 diabetes who simply follow the same strict diet as that after surgery are just as likely to reap the benefits, the Daily Express reported.

Ildiko Lingvay, M.D., an assistant professor of internal medicine at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center who helped conduct the study, said the reduction of patients' caloric intake following bariatric surgery is what leads to the major improvements in diabetes, not the surgery itself.
