ABSTRACT
The article presents a study that was conducted by J.B. Dixon and colleagues on whether laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB) improve glycemic control more than conventional therapy (CT) alone in obese patients with recently diagnosed type 2 diabetes. The trial by Dixon and colleagues found that surgery was more efficacious than nonsurgical treatment and had beneficial metabolic effects. Limitations include the small sample, brief follow-up and measurement of intermediate outcomes.
