A woman suffering severely from fibroids was about to have a hysterectomy when her high blood-sugar levels were noticed. Surgery was canceled as it was too risky. Eventually she heard of a new treatment to remove fibroids - uterine fibroid embolization. This treatment removed the fibroids and meant a hysterectomy wasn't necessary. She was thrilled with the results as it was an effective non-invasive procedure. The treatment involved injecting small particles into the uterine arteries. This blocks the arteries feeding the fibroids which then dissipated.
