How Can Gastric Bypass Surgery Eliminate Type 2 Diabetes?

Postby jesiah » Mon Oct 27, 2014 2:05 am

Decrease insulin resistance Bypass surgery is to achieve weight loss. You loose weight, you decrease your insulin resistance, which is what causes the Type 2 diabetes. With the insulin resistance decreased now - your body can handle the insulin needs on it own and you dont need meds. Thus, Type 2 can potentially be controlled.  Once a diabetec, you are always a diabetic, just one in good control or controled by diet and exercise alone. Good luck.

How Can Gastric Bypass Surgery Eliminate Type 2 Diabetes?

I won't take an answer slot. But it was found that people who had the gastric bypass lost all their type two diabetes symptoms in a matter of days after the operation, LONG before they lost weight. So an Italian surgeon experimented with diabetic mice and surgically moved their intestine to bypass their duodenum. Immediately these mice lost the diabetes symptoms. Then he reattached the intestines so that food would, once again, go through the duodenum. Once again the mice displayed the diabetes symptoms. He concluded that the cure for diabetes may be a surgical one.

http://www.defeatdiabetes.org/Articles/gastricsurgery050727.htmThe researchers suspect the effect happens like this: Barely digested food rushes right into the intestine. Its hormones then overstimulate the insulin-oozing beta cells of the pancreas. The excess of insulin -- the same hormone that fails in diabetics -- removes too much sugar from the blood.==New Complication With Gastric Bypass: DiabetesPatients who underwent the most popular type of obesity surgery have developed an apparent complication -- blood sugar so perilously low that it causes confusion, tunnel vision and blackouts.The condition was corrected with further surgery and no lasting effects, and the researchers and other experts said the problem is probably too rare to warrant cutting back on the weight-loss procedure.In fact, the problem might suggest new ways of treating diabetics."If we can understand the molecular details here, we can bottle them," said Dr. David Cummings, a hormone researcher at the University of Washington. He wrote an editorial accompanying the federally funded study in Thursday's New England Journal of Medicine.The possible complication stems from the stomach-bypass procedure known as the Roux-en-Y technique. A small pouch is stapled off from the rest of the stomach and then connected directly to the small intestine. The pouch can handle only small amounts of food.This technique accounts for the vast majority of the roughly 140,000 gastric-bypass operations performed each year in the United States. The number has been rising at almost 50 percent a year in response to the obesity epidemic.Researchers at the Mayo Clinic of Rochester, Minn., focused on six Roux-en-Y patients who developed severe low blood sugar, or neuroglycopenia. They suffered temporary confusion, passed out or developed tunnel vision after eating."For people who have it, they basically have to be baby-sat: They cannot be left alone, they can't drive," said one of the researchers, Dr. F. John Service.The researchers suspect the effect happens like this: Barely digested food rushes right into the intestine. Its hormones then overstimulate the insulin-oozing beta cells of the pancreas. The excess of insulin -- the same hormone that fails in diabetics -- removes too much sugar from the blood.To correct the condition, doctors had to remove most of the pancreas from the patients. But that put the patients in danger of developing diabetes, an illness that is often cured by gastric bypass surgery.Dr. Neil Hutcher, a stomach-bypass surgeon who is president of the American Society for Bariatric Surgery, said he has never seen the possible complication in his roughly 3,000 operations."Do I think it can be called a substantial complication of gastric bypass at this time? Absolutely not. Do I think it's a reason to modify gastric bypass at this time? Absolutely not," he said.Cummings said this insulin-boosting complication could explain why gastric bypass generally cures diabetes, and could also point the way to new treatments.

You just can't eat as much stuff and only certain foods. Type 2 diabetes maybe due to overeating sugar, and fat... but it can also come from being celiac(can't eat dairy or gluten grains).
