Weight Loss can Help Treat Type 2 Diabetes

Metabolic and hormonal imbalances can occur due to obesity, which can eventually lead to metabolic syndrome. Type 2 diabetes and other serious health conditions may consequently arise with metabolic syndrome. Weight loss achieved through bariatric surgery can effectively address metabolic syndrome. Sleeve gastrectomy or gastric bypass surgeries can support healthy metabolism by helping in the exit of strong intestinal hormones.

Once these hormones are eliminated from the body, it is possible to get rid of type 2 diabetes. Experience shows that most type 2 diabetes patients will no longer need daily medications just days after they have undergone metabolic surgery. Dedicated bariatric surgeon Dr. Wiljon Beltre provides cutting edge treatments for type 2 diabetics in Orlando, Tampa, Maitland, Central Florida, and surrounding communities.


How to Resolve Type 2 Diabetes?

Advanced metabolic and bariatric surgery procedures such as sleeve gastrectomy and gastric bypass have emerged as widely accepted treatments to address type 2 diabetes. The procedure is designed to help a patient achieve rapid and significant weight loss by creating a smaller stomach. The patient’s calorie needs are curtailed and they are able to focus on a nutritious diet.

At the same time, these surgeries, at a more complex level, will also transform the way the food is processed in the body. Metabolism will be triggered due to hormonal changes, enabling more efficient calorie burn-out and supporting the outcomes of a healthier diet and exercise. Hunger will be adequately curbed due to the control of Ghrelin hormone following the surgery.

The metabolic changes that are kick-started through these weight loss surgeries will particularly benefit type 2 diabetes patients by supporting the natural production of insulin in the body. As the correct glucose processing begins, the blood sugar levels of the patient will come under control and the condition of type 2 diabetes will be effectively reversed.

Dr. Beltre is an experienced bariatric surgeon receiving patients from Orlando, Tampa, Maitland, Central Florida, and nearby areas for weight loss and related conditions.


Relied from Medications

Following the weight loss surgery, it will only take a few days for the hormonal changes to take effect and eliminate the symptoms of type 2 diabetes. Patients should stop taking their diabetes medications following the surgery until they have checked their new blood sugar levels. It is possible that the patient may become completely free of their dependence on medications by the time they have recovered from the weight loss surgery.

State of the art laparoscopic surgery techniques have made weight loss surgery procedures less invasive and more targeted. A type 2 diabetic can expect to enjoy a healthier life and attain permanent freedom from this dreaded disease with this weight loss surgery.
