Type II Diabetes Surgery

Type II Diabetes Surgery

Type 2 diabetes is a common condition that causes the level of sugar (glucose) in the blood to become too high. With type 2 diabetes, your body either resists the effects of insulin — a hormone that regulates the movement of sugar into your cells — or doesn’t produce enough insulin to maintain normal glucose levels. Weight-loss surgery, also called bariatric surgery, can be done in minimally invasive ways and can be used to treat Type 2 diabetes. The surgery treats diabetes by controlling how much sugar is in the blood. One type of surgery is called the duodenal switch.

What is
Type II Diabetes Surgery?

You can treat diabetes through bariatric surgery:
  • If you have a BMI of 35 or more with type 2 diabetes and/or other illnesses related to excess weight, and have not been able to achieve normal fasting blood sugar (less than 125 mg/dl or HbA1c less than 7 percent), you probably are a candidate for diabetes surgery.
  • In some cases of inadequately controlled diabetes, patients may be eligible for bariatric surgery even if they have a BMI of less than 35.

Weight loss surgery can make a big difference for people with type 2 diabetes. For some people, blood sugar levels get back to normal after surgery. Diabetes can be cured.That could mean you need less medication or none at all.
If your BMI 35 or higher and you have tried to lose weight and kept it off without success then we will give you a detailed checkup and ask you questions to see if you are physically and emotionally ready for the operation and the major changes you’ll need to make.
There are different kinds of operations. Some help you lose weight by shrinking the size of your stomach so you feel full after small meals. Others change the way your body absorbs calories, nutrients, and vitamins. Still others do both.
Many insurance companies do cover weight loss surgery, since studies show that weight loss surgery could help treat type 2 diabetes.
The best way to keep the weight off is to stick to your diet and exercise plan. You’ll have to eat smaller meals. Choose a half-cup to a cup of vegetables and protein-rich foods per serving. Try lean cuts of meat, fish, beans, low-fat cheese, and yogurt.
