Dramatically Improve Your Health with Metabolic Surgery for Diabetes

The changes in medicine are dizzying. Day after day, there are new developments in medical practice, requiring the constant updating of health professionals. Some areas that we thought could not evolve have continued to surprise us.

Often referred to as bariatric surgery, these operations are performed to produce weight loss, but metabolic surgery does far more than produce weight loss. Metabolic and bariatric surgery currently provide one of the most effective therapies for diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep apnea, arthritis, asthma, acid reflux, infertility and high cholesterol. Such operations can often restore the health of the morbidly obese individual by the correction of abnormal metabolism.

In recent years, it has become evident that the gastrointestinal tract and the small bowel in particular, play a critical role in the regulation of blood sugar levels, fat metabolism, and in the control of appetite and body weight. Therefore, changes in gastrointestinal anatomy imposed by operations commonly used to treat morbid obesity (i.e. gastric bypass and Biliopancreatic diversion) as well as by novel, emerging surgical techniques can influence diabetes and other metabolic disorders through direct mechanisms and not only by inducing weight loss.

International consensus conference, the Diabetes Surgery Summit, was held in Rome, Italy on March 2007. In this historical scientific event, a multidisciplinary team of world experts in endocrinology and gastrointestinal physiology recognized that metabolic surgery could represent a valid alternative option for selected patients with diabetes.

Metabolic surgery is now being offered at Weight Loss Surgical Center to intentionally treat diabetes and including hypertension, high cholesterol, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and obstructive sleep apnea.

In patients with severe obesity, metabolic surgery dramatically improves diabetes, often resulting in normalization of blood glucose levels and discontinuation of insulin therapy or oral hypoglycemic agents. Such remission of diabetes is unprecedented in the history of a disease that has always been considered chronic and irreversible.

Clinical investigations on the potential use of metabolic surgery to treat diabetes in patients who are not obese enough to qualify for bariatric surgery. In addition to its effects on diabetes, metabolic surgery represents also new perspective in the treatment of severe obesity, with or without diabetes. Indeed, by tailoring the choice of gastrointestinal surgical procedures to the metabolic characteristics of individual patients, surgery can results in much more than just body weight loss, and improve life expectancy and quality of life of severely obese patients.

If you’ve had difficulty succeeding in eliminating excess weight on your own, it might be time to consider weight loss surgery. Gastric Band (LAP-BAND), RNY Gastric Bypass, Gastric Sleeve Duodenal Switch and the new Gastric Plication procedure can efficiently enable you to lose the weight and cure diabetes… and even stop it from ever developing.
