EndoBarrier is a plastic sleeve that gets inserted through your throat into your upper intestine.

It modulates the amount of food that’s absorbed which, in turn, tends to shed pounds which, as we know from other studies, tends to (really) turn off type II diabetes.

Not A Condom

G I Dynamic’s device is smart and seems pretty benign (compared to tummy surgery) and, in fact, it does have the potential to be very helpful. An earlier article in OPNOTES describes the concept well.

The “Endobarrier” is probably a good thing.

But MISTER ScienceAintSoBad’s butt starts to itch when he reads over-the-top journalism (except his own) that describes stuff like a “15 Minute Cure For Diabetes.” AND for obesity.

EndoBarrier HAS been approved (in Europe).
And it SEEMS pretty safe.
And it DOES seem like an “easy install”

BUT the AMOUNT of weight lost is quite a bit less than with bariatric surgery

Not an unreasonable trade off.

ScienceAintSoBadRating = 7 .

Time will tell.
