Weight loss surgery can be a cure for Type 2 diabetes. That's according to a new study conducted in Europe.

Sixty patients with advanced Type 2 diabetes either had bariatric surgery or got conventional medical treatment.

Over one-third of the surgical patients remained diabetes-free for the entire 10-year study.

Surgery also helped lower cardiovascular risks, boost kidney function, and improve quality of life.
