The total number of type 2 diabetes patients is rapidly increasing all over the world. The major factors which cause type 2 diabetes are an unhealthy lifestyle, eating too much junk food, obesity, and an inactive lifestyle. However, there is promising new research that shows that type 2 diabetes can be reversed with the help of metabolic surgery, a variation of laparoscopic gastric bypass surgery.
According to recent research, it has been found that more than 90% of patients who have undergone metabolic surgery have also successfully recovered from type 2 diabetes and have also seen a drastic improvement in blood pressure levels. The amazing thing about these results is that these health benefits occurred before surgery-related weight loss. Researchers at the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons are currently working to explain exactly how metabolic surgery affects type 2 diabetes.
The Probable Reason for Reversing Type 2 Diabetes After Metabolic Surgery:
Laparoscopic gastric bypass procedure seems to provide rapid results after surgery. Most patients who have successfully undergone the surgery have been able to immediately stop taking the diabetes medication.
Researchers believe the most plausible reason for these results can be attributed to the hormonal secretion caused by the upper intestinal tract in the body. The foregut, which means the upper part of intestinal tract, plays a major role in improving diabetes symptoms. Research also found that unlike other surgeries such as custom nose reshaping, metabolic surgery is solely for health purposes and not for aesthetics. Hence, it is crucial to undergo this kind of surgery when needed.
After the metabolic surgery, the gastrointestinal tract introduces nutritional elements to the lower part of the intestinal tract much more quickly. These nutritional elements, which also contain hormones such as GLP1, improve the functioning of beta cells, which produce insulin in the body. The increased supply of nutrients to beta cells can help improve glucose circulation in the blood, explaining why metabolic surgery is an effective treatment for type 2 diabetes.
Resolve Type 2 Diabetes and Hypertension – Lower High Cholesterol
According to the website Type 2 Diabetes International, not only does metabolic surgery resolve type 2 diabetes and hypertension in 90% of the patients who undergo the procedure. Metabolic surgery is also effective in lowering high cholesterol levels in 70% of the patients undergoing the treatment.
If you have tried diet, exercise, changing your lifestyle, medications, and insulin injections to no avail, then perhaps it is time for you to look into alternatives such as metabolic surgery to reverse type 2 diabetes. It may just be worth your time and money to travel to Costa Rica for metabolic surgery. You will not only have a 90% chance of reversing your disease, you can save 50% or more of what you would have to pay at home for the procedure, and that’s if the procedure is even available in your home country!
