British scientists developed an implanted sleeve which can cure diabetes. The implanted sleeve looks like a giant sausage skin. It’s two feet long device which can reverse diabetes. The sleeve is made from a thin plastic.
The new device is called the EndoBarrier. It is designed to have the same effects as the surgery but far safer. It is a plastic sleeve that lines the duodenum, meaning food can only be absorbed lower down the intestine.

 The sleeve is inserted through the mouth and passed into the digestive tract using a thin tube. The implant also decreases cholesterol levels and blood pressure.
