    Actually, you folks are wrong on a few counts.

    Which surgery has the best resolution of diabetes?  The answer should be none of the above.  You failed to include DS.  DS has the very best resolution of diabetes.

    There were others, but they revolve around only including 3 out of the 4 major surgery types.  Tsk tsk.  You are spreading incorrect information.

      Thank you for your comments! We gave the ‘best answer’ for all questions based on generally accepted/published statistics. You are correct that DS/Duodenal Switch does have the highest resolution for diabetes, but we only included the most widely done procedures. Our test was for fun and not designed to be all encompassing or a medical guide. We are glad you stopped by. – Susan
