In this Wednesday, March 26, 2014 photo, Heather Britton talks about her weight-loss surgery at her home in Bay Village, Ohio. New research is boosting hopes that weight-loss surgery can put some patients’ diabetes into remission for years and perhaps in some cases, for good. Some patients, like Britton, have passed the five-year mark when some experts consider cure or prolonged remission a possibility. Before the study, she was taking drugs for diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol; she takes none now. (AP Photo/Tony Dejak)
