Schrapps reversed my Diabetis, the sleeve surgery got my health in line, starting at 250 pounds, 5 months later 189, take NO diabetic medications, cut way, way down on other medications as well. Thank you Dr. Schrapps for helping me get my life back. You must learn, the sleeve is a tool, not a cure all. Use the tool wisely
