Bariatric Surgery for Diabetic Patients

If the fat accumulated in the tissues of the body increase more than 20% of the optimal weight that is suitable for age and height of a person, this condition is defined as obesity. Surgical procedures like bariatric surgery would be used for weight loss and to manage morbid obesity. Obesity is one of the major risk factors that cause type 2 diabetes.

Not all persons who have diabetes are considered as suitable candidates for the bariatric surgery. Carbohydrate cravings and binge eating are more common things among diabetics, whenever diabetics are willing to control such behavior, then only weight loss surgery will be more helpful in reducing excess weight.

From recent studies connection between diabetes and bariatric surgery has been explored. From that studies it is observed that individuals who have become diabetic patients in the last few years and who have followed particular dietary habits are likely to acquire best weight loss, and also diabetic remission, followed by a gastric bypass surgery. This weight loss surgery may create complications like coronary heart disease for older diabetics. That is, those who are fitter, younger and who had suffered from diabetes for a short period of time may have a better chance of getting relief from obesity and diabetes with a weight loss surgery.

Type2 diabetes is linked to obesity. Excess amount of fat that is accumulated at abdomen contributes to the body’s reaction to insulin that means excess weight may contribute to develop type 2 diabetes. Blindness, heart disease, kidney, and nerve damage are the complications that are associated with this type 2 diabetes.

Bariatric surgery can be used for patients who have type 2 diabetes; but they are not necessarily obese.

A gastric bypass surgery is a very complicated and irreversible weight loss surgery. During this procedure at the top of the stomach, a small pouch is created, and then this would be directly connected to the middle part of the small intestine, bypassing the upper intestine and rest of the stomach, or duodenum. The part that is bypassed is where there can most easily absorb all the minerals and vitamins, so patients should take care regarding nutritional deficiencies followed by the weight loss surgery.

Many surgeons strongly believe that surgery that bypasses the duodenum is most effective method for controlling the diabetes because the duodenum plays a major role in resistance of insulin, and bypassing this can reduces the resistance of the insulin in patients with diabetes mellitus. A bariatric surgery also results in most weight loss in patients with diabetes.
