This answer was rated:

It is new; and not approved by the AMA, i'm sure.
Can you describe "LGB" a little? Is it a surgical procedure?
Customer: replied 9 years ago.
Dr. Philip Schauer; Pittsburgh; LGB.
    It is suppose to dramaticly effect metabolzing of food. Often PERMANENTLY curing
type 2 diabetes.
    From a report "diabetes Reversed Forever"; a
BotXXXXX XXXXXne (inc) publication.
    What does LGB 'stand for'?
Got it. I THOUGHT that is what you meant but wasn't 100% sure. LGB stands for "laparoscopic gastric banding". It is a surgical procedure done to fascilitate weight loss.
