MACAO Cheap Football Jerseys China , Dec. 7 (Xinhua) -- Macao Chief Executive Chui Sai On has pledged to give priority to comprehensively implementing the "One country, Two systems" policy and the Basic Law, which he said would be the top principle for his governance of Macao in the next five years.

"The achievements in Macao have highlighted the great vitality of the 'One country, Two systems' policy," Chui told Xinhua on the eve of the 15th anniversary of Macao's return to China.

Chui Cheap Custom Football Jerseys , 57, will be sworn in as the fourth-term chief executive of the Macao Special Administrative Region (SAR) on Dec. 20 after winning a reelection on Aug. 31.

The SAR's gross domestic product (GDP) reached 413.47 billion patacas (51.76 billion U.S. dollars) last year from 50.27 billion patacas in 1999, with an average annual growth of 16.2 percent.

WASHINGTON, May 24 (Xinhua) -- New clinical guidelines published Tuesday and endorsed by 45 international diabetes organizations called for bariatric surgery, involving the manipulation of the stomach or intestine, to be considered a standard treatment option for type 2 diabetes.

The guidelines, published in the U.S. journal Diabetes Care, recommended surgery to induce weight-loss for certain categories of people living with type 2 diabetes, including those who are mildly obese and fail to respond to conventional treatment.

The recommendation was based on evidence from 11 clinical trials that bariatric surgery can improve blood glucose levels more effectively than any lifestyle or pharmaceutical interventions in obese people with type 2 diabetes.

Diabetes Care Editor in Chief William Cefalu said in a statement that the new guidelines mark the first time the surgery is recommended as a treatment option specifically for diabetes.

"Given the rapid developments in the field, it is important to focus on this topic for those who care for individuals with diabetes," Cefalu said. "These new Guidelines, based on the results of multiple clinical studies, validate that metabolic surgery is indicated for certain people with diabetes and can yield significantly improved outcomes."
