What is Diabetes?
According to a study, type 2, Diabetes will affect nearly 98 million people by 2030. For more statistical information, go through the link. Diabetes is associated with overweight, obesity, family history, diet, lack of physical activity, and older age.
Unlike type 1 diabetes, where the pancreas does not produce enough insulin, the pancreas produces enough insulin in patients with type 2 diabetes, but for some unknown reason, the body cannot use insulin.
Diabetes can cause blindness, heart and blood vessels, stroke, kidney failure, amputation, and nerve damage. Current therapies for diabetes include nutrition, exercise, oral hypoglycemic, and insulin medications do not always cure the disease.
Causes of Type 2 Diabetes:
In Type 2 diabetes, cells will become resistant to insulin, and your pancreas cannot produce enough insulin to overcome this resistance. Instead of entering your cells where energy is needed, sugar builds up in your blood.
Why type 2 diabetes cause is unknown but believed that genetic, and lifestyle factors play a role in causing overweight type 2 diabetes.
Symptoms of Diabetes:
Symptoms of diabetes vary depending on the quantity of blood sugar in the blood. Some people, especially those who suffer from pre-diabetes or type 2 diabetes, may initially not experience symptoms. Some of the symptoms of type 2 diabetes are:
- Increased thirst
- Frequent urination
- Extreme hunger
- Unexplained weight loss
- Presence of ketones in the urine
- Blurred vision
- Slow-healing sores
- Causes recurrent infections, in gums or skin, and some vaginal infections
The most common type is Type 2 diabetes that can develop at any age, although it is more common in people over 40 years.
Conventional Therapy for Diabetes:
The goal of treatment is to improve diabetes symptoms by normalizing blood sugar levels. The current goal is the prevention of long-term complications such as eye and kidney disease, nerve damage, and blood vessels. Strict glycemic control reduces the risk of death, heart failure, stroke, and other complications. the test that determines the risk of long-term complications and which measures how much glucose is attached to red blood cells and other cells is Glycosylated haemoglobin (HbA1C). The first treatment for type 2 diabetes is weight loss, diet, and exercise.
Proper diet planning involves choosing healthy foods and the right amount of food. Exercise is essential for effective diabetes care. Regular exercise helps burn excess calories, and weight management improves blood sugar control.
If diet and exercise are not enough to maintain healthy blood sugar levels, medication may be needed. They cause the pancreas to produce more insulin, work better on insulin, reduce the absorption of carbohydrates from the intestine, or reduce glucose production in the liver. Poor glycemic control means insulin must be injected despite lifestyle and medication changes.
Surgery is the Best Therapy For Diabetes in Obesity Patient:
Diet and medical therapy for severe obesity have limited short-term success, and almost no long-term success can see.
Metabolic surgery (also called obesity surgery) is, therefore, a popular treatment for fighting obesity. Weight loss surgery usually results in more significant weight loss than conventional treatments and leads to improved quality of life and obesity-related conditions such as diabetes, hypertension and sleep apnea and more.
Metabolic operations currently performed include:
- Stomach restriction (adjustable gastric banding, sleeve gastrectomy)
- Malabsorptive and Combined with a restrictive procedure like biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch, Roux-en-Y gastric bypass.
Vertical sleeve gastrectomy or sleeve gastrectomy is a surgical procedure for weight loss which in turn to decrease diabetes. This procedure is usually performed laparoscopically, placing a small instrument through several small incisions in the upper abdomen. In this procedure, about 80 percent of the stomach is removed and leaves a tube-shaped stomach that matches the size and shape of the banana.
How Metabolic Surgery Can Cure Diabetes Inpatients:
Patients are often told that weight loss surgery will cure diabetes. That is not true. However, people with type 2 diabetes or pre-diabetes and obesity can benefit from the low weight loss achieved through surgery.
After gastric bypass or sleeve gastrectomy, the patient observes weight loss and changes in the digestive tract. Weight loss surgery causes significant changes in incretin – a hormone in the gastrointestinal tract that causes insulin secretion. These changes lead to a substantial decrease in type 2 diabetes and can cause long-term changes in the pancreas that lead to the loss of diabetes.
These changes can help People:
- Achieve remission for type 2 diabetes
- Reduce the use of medicine you need every day
- Postpone the onset of diabetes (for prediabetes patients)
The economic, medical, and social burden of diabetes is enormous in India. Given our current inability to achieve significant remissions and reduce mortality through medical management, metabolic surgery is a new frontier in the treatment of diabetes. Metabolic surgery has not only for obesity but also type 2 diabetes successfully treated. Surgery must now be seen as an appropriate treatment not only for overweight patients but also for non-diabetic patients who fall under BMI guidelines. The potential benefits of metabolic surgery are indeed vast.
Metabolic surgery can cause significant and ongoing remissions and decrease in T2DM and other metabolic risk factors in patients with severe obesity.
