WCAX quotes Professor Annis Marney regarding diabetes prevention

(JUNE 6, 2013) WCAX-TV's story "Weight loss surgery keeps type 2 diabetes at bay" follows Beth Elkins, 45, who was diagnosed recently with type 2 diabetes, following a long struggle with weight gain. She sought out the assistance of Annis Marney, M.D., UVM assistant professor of endocrinology and Fletcher Allen endocrinologist, and underwent bariatric surgery in an effort to lose weight. The surgery helped Elkins drop 50 pounds in 4 months, and has also likely contributed to her diabetes going into remission.
