Changing lifestyles, stress, untimely eating habits, consuming junk food, lack of exercise, have all contributed to obesity and diabetes rising to epidemic levels especially amongst the youth in India. According to estimates there is an alarming rise of up to 50% in the incidence of Obesity and Diabetes in the last two decades alone and 80% of diabetics are obese. Obesity in turn can lead to severe health repercussions like cardiovascular disease, thyroid, diabetes, sleep apnea, infertility etc. India had an estimated 31,705,000 diabetics in the millennium year which is estimated to grow by over 100% to 79,441,000 by 2030. According to the International Diabetes Federation Atlas 2015, an estimated 69.2 million Indians are diabetic. The estimates depict that diabetes prevalence has alarmingly doubled and so far, has grown by over 100% in the past 15 years. Estimates also indicate that 13.9% of diabetics are in 20-39 age group, 50.2% in 40–59 age group and 35.9 in 60+ age group.
Stalwarts like Dr Surendra Ugale, with notable achievements in the field of diabetic surgery, have instilled confidence in growing number of patients that the lurking threat of diabetes need no more be a worry for them with advanced treatment options like Ileal Interposition, Sleeve with Loop Bipartition.
Last thing obese and diabetics should be afraid of is undergoing this surgery.....instead they should be perturbed about the heart attacks and other complications associated with these health disorders in the long run. There is a certain way of doing all this very safely and Asian Bariatric is a pioneer in this, says Dr Surendra Ugale, the 1st surgeon to perform Laparoscopic surgery in Andhra Pradesh in 1991 and only the second surgeon in the world to do Laparoscopic Ileal Interposition for Type-2 Diabetes, which he is performing since 2008. He cautions
patients, that an early surgical treatment can return their life to normalcy and help lessen the burden of complications of heart attack, kidney failure, stroke, neuropathy and retinopathy in such diabetics in addition to medication and cost associated.
Ileal Interposition, Sleeve with Loop Bipartition are two diabetes surgeries that Dr Ugale does with great expertise. The term Ileal Interposition, in brief, is a kind of exchange of the initial and final parts of the small intestine. The insulin resistance hormones, Ghrelin (stomach), GIP (duodenum) and glucagon (pancreas), are excreted from the initial parts of the digestive system and the insulin sensitivity hormone, called GLP-1, is released from the L cells in the last part of the intestine. GLP-1 is a hormone that increases the effects of insulin and stimulates insulin production by the pancreas. Basically, the goal of this procedure is to leave the resistance hormones aside and increase the sensitivity hormones.
Along with the weight-loss surgery the bigger chunk of patients who are going to get benefitted from this are the diabetic patients. Diabetes is a silent killer and patients with history of long standing diabetes end up having other complications of Kidney, Nerves, eyesight and heart.
Diabetics with or without obesity, can now get rid of increased sugar levels with a single surgery. Metabolic surgery can help large number of diabetics. Especially those with low weight struggling with uncontrolled diabetes despite taking medications including insulin and following diet and exercise regiment, can immensely benefit from this.
These surgeries are not painful at all and the average hospital stay doesn't exceed two nights. The patients generally walk into the Operation theatre and walk out after the surgery, the same day, without any assistance. They can return to their routine within 2-3 days from discharge.
