You should look into the diet that people follow after the surgery. I believe the diet has something to do with the diabetes going away.
Also, low-carb/paleo works well.
Post-gastric bypass people are told to push the protein anyway. . .it’s the effectively the Paleo diet. .
Diet alone doesn’t seem to cause all the changes that the surgery does.
I personally do not have a weight problem, with the exception that I was too thin when my thyroid was hyper.
A dear friend is looking into the surgery, and has recently been diagnosed with Type II. She has lost considerable weight, but her blood sugars are still high, and she and her internist are planning a surgical consult.

No, the changes occur sometimes within a day of the surgery and it is postulated that it has something to do with cutting into the stomach itself.
Actually it has to do with absorption in the duodenum. Some studies have showed if a stent (metal tube) is placed in the duodenum preventing absorption, it will have a similar effect on diabetes. Interesting stuff....
