60 min. from Mon Jun 30 00:00:00 CDT 2008 Show - Dr. Michael Steelman, M.D. (Oklahoma City, OK), Board Certified Bariatric Physician and past president of the American Bariatric Physicians Association, discusses recent reports regarding how gastric bypass surgery, in which the stomach is made smaller allowing food to bypass part of the small intestine, can lower the effects of diabetes and high blood pressure. Although gastric bypass surgery has its place, there are still risks involved especially since the part of the intestine where many minerals and vitamins are most easily absorbed are bypassed leading to a possible deficiency in iron, calcium, magnesium or vitamins. Non-surgical weight loss can have the same positive effects on diabetes and high blood pressure with minimal risk. For additional information, please visit www.thesteelmanclinic.com. Second guest, (Gold Hill, OR), naturalist and author, discusses "the fountain of youth".
