Gastric Bypass Surgery
The gastric bypass procedure comprehends creating a very small sac out of the stomach and adding it directly to the small bowel, bypassing most of the tum and the first part of the small enteron. This small stomach sac cannot hold great amounts of food, and by leaping the first part of the small bowel, hormones that control our appetency and food sorption are also affected. Both, this results in significant and sustained weight loss. This supplemental hormonal effect makes it a exclusively effective surgery for diabetes and other metabolic complexity of obesity.
After surgery, patients begin with liquids before acting to a pureed diet while the stomach heals. A few weeks after gastric bypass surgery patients advance to eating three minor meals a day of normal consistence food. Small portion meals are enough to generate a sensation of repletion, making it easier for patients to limit the quantity they eat.
Gastric bypass surgery is performed to treat grade 2 obesity (defined as a BMI more than 40), type 2 diabetes, hypertension, sleep apnea, and other comorbid conditions.
