Weight Loss Surgery for Diabetes
Also known as sleeve gastrectomy, gastric sleeve is a surgery that involves the removal of a portion of the stomach leaving a sleeve resembling a banana. These sleeve controls the amount of food ingested in the body, whilst there´s also lesser amounts produced of the hormone that triggers hunger, eventually causing low appetite.
There are two phases performed on patients presenting some risks and high levels of body mass index. This surgery has advantages in that 18 months after surgery, the patient can shed up to 60% of their body weight. There is also a normal intake of vitamins, proteins, fats and sugars.
Disadvantages may include deficiencies of vitamin B12, increased chances of having to undergo surgery again, and tear on the line of surgery could cause leakage.
Gastric bypass is another form of diabetes surgery. During surgery, the removal of a larger part of the stomach leaves a small portion the size of an egg. This reduces the amount of food taken in the body. Formation of acids takes place in the remaining stomach combining with nutrients in the ileum, hormones that relate to hunger produce less often causing reduction in appetite. Nutrients and calories follow a different path leading to less absorption in the body. Patients undergoing gastric bypass surgery usually recover quickly and with minimal incisions. There can be massive weight loss ranging from 60-85 kilograms.
Risks associated may include deficiencies in iron and vitamins, blocking and ulcers in the stomach, spleen injuries and leaking on the weak lines of the stomach.
Gastric banding involves the tying of the upper part of the stomach using a band referred to as the laparoscopic adjustable gastric band. This forms a smaller stomach that inhibits intake of food, the band has a port that is adjustable to a larger or smaller size. Saline used inflates the band causing a feeling of fullness hence less intake of food. Usually, within a period of 3 to 5 months, some patients lose up to 50% of body weight. The procedure is reversible, and one can make adjustments on the band whenever necessary. The patient recovers quickly and there are minimal incisions on the body.
Advancements in technology have led to methods that involve one incision. Dr Castaneda is an expert bariatric surgeon specializing in laparoscopic weight loss surgery, contact him or his medical team to ask for more information about diabetes surgery in Mexico.
