What is diabetes?
The increase in the amount of glucose in the blood, the body can not control it is defined as diabetes among people. The presence of more or less than normal sugar in the blood, which meets the energy of all the cells in the body, disrupts the functioning of all organs. Excess sugar in the blood, just like poison, damage the entire body and causes diabetes.
When diabetes is not controlled and treated at the initial stage, severe diabetes, which we call Type 2 Diabetes, emerges. Untreated type 2 diabetes is a life-threatening disease that can lead to dialysis-related life, such as heart attack, stroke (paralysis), sleep apnea, excess weight, joint diseases, and renal failure.
All these diseases and risks associated with Metabolic Surgery can be completely or partially eliminated by Transit Bipartition.
Transit Bipartition, which completely improves the patient’s quality of life, is a cost-effective operation since it is a high-tech operation that is not easy to perform.
Transit Bipartition, which can only be applied to Type 2 Diabetes patients, is a very successful operation with the right patient selection.
The age, weight, medication, insulin dose, the blood sugar level of the patient are decisive criteria for choosing the right patient.
Transit Bipartition, this surgical procedure to regulate metabolic syndrome and help to lose weight has a restrictive and malabsorptive mechanism of action. In Transit Bipartition surgery, GLP1 hormone secretion is increased by changing the place where the small intestine starts and ends, and insulin production increases due to this, and the rate of blood glucose access to cells increases. Since the fasting hormone-secreting part of the stomach is also taken, the feeling of hunger, one of the biggest factors for diabetes, is diminished.
Transit Bipartition differs from other tube gastric surgeries because it not only regulates the stomach but also regulates the intestine. So you don’t have digestive problems. Caloric intake is limited and the gastric emptying process is regulated. No part of the digestive system is removed. There is no risk of deficiency of vitamins or minerals thanks to changes made in a way that does not harm food absorption.
Other Advantages of Transit Bipartition
– Low intragastric pressure and prevention of tube leakage
– Ensuring food passage and absorption through the entire digestive system
– Endoscopic access to all parts of the digestive system
– Access to the duodenum and bile ducts with ERCP
– No need for vitamins, minerals, iron and calcium supplements due to the protection of stomach antrum, pylorus and duodenum are benefits gained after Transit Bipartition.
Since Transit Bipartition is a surgery that targets weight loss, which can be a solution for both obesity and diabetes, body mass index (BMI) is desired to be above a certain rate.
After the Transit Bipartition operation, 90% of the patients had a net success and 10% had a 90% reduction in the insulin doses they should use. Blood sugar, cholesterol, triglyceride levels, high blood pressure, excess weight, liver fattening, eye, kidney diseases and foot wounds, such as problems with permanent results and an increase in quality of life is observed.
With all these factors in mind, you can safely decide on transit bipartition surgery.
