Diabetes Awareness Month - Spotlight on Michele Files

Type 2 diabetes often goes hand in hand with morbid obesity, and it was a situation 40-year-old Michele Files found herself in, as she was diagnosed gestational diabetes while pregnant with twins. Although she no longer had diabetes once her identical twin boys were born, just a few short years later she found herself diagnosed with type 2 diabetes again. Not wanting to face the same fate as her mother who also had type 2 diabetes and died when Michele was 43, Michele knew she had to take action to get healthy and fit so she could watch her four young children grow up. So, she sought the help of Los Angeles bariatric surgeon Dr. Michael Feiz.

Now 50, Michele is another one of Dr. Feiz' gastric sleeve success stories, after having her bariatric procedure in September, 2013, and finding herself diabetes-free just 10 weeks later.

This scenario is not uncommon among obese type 2 diabetics who have bariatric surgery. In fact, research has shown that as many as 90% of those who have bariatric surgery become diabetes-free within a year of their procedure.
