For many of those who are overweight, Type 2 Diabetes is a looming problem. The Lap Band, a form of minimally invasive bariatric surgery, can help those who have had trouble losing large amounts of excess weight. In maintaining that loss, the effects of Type 2 Diabetes have been shown to be greatly reduced.
The Lap Band is an adjustable gastric banding system that is placed around the top of the stomach and injected with saline through a port that is positioned just beneath the skin. When filled, the band shrinks the stomach and reduces hunger. Because of this, a patient can only eat a small amount of food at a time and thus losing weight slowly over time. According to the Lap-Band AP System website, using this device is more successful and 10 times safer than traditional bariatric surgeries that isolate or completely remove parts of the digestive system.
