Study finds bariatric surgery better than dieting for some

WATERLOO (KWWL) -

Obese adults who have trouble controlling their blood sugar may benefit more from bariatric surgery, compared to dieting.

A new study out of Duke University looked at certain amino acids in obese adults' blood, specifically those linked to insulin resistance.

They found lower levels of these amino acids in patients who had bariatric surgery compared to adults who lost the same amount of weight by dieting.
