Bariatric Surgery In Turkey For Type 2 Diabetes

Type 2 diabetes occurs when a body becomes resistant to insulin, the hormone that controls blood sugar levels. When the body becomes resistant to insulin, it may be harder to keep blood sugar levels from getting too high, which can lead to a higher risk of heart disease, stroke, kidney failure, and even blindness. Bariatric surgery in Turkey treats type 2 diabetes in two important ways:

Helps people achieve a healthier body mass index (BMI) by reducing their food intake and decreasing the number of calories the body can absorb. This alone may decrease a person’s insulin resistance and makes blood sugar easier to control. Triggers change gut hormones that encourage healthier metabolism and more stable blood sugar levels.

Bariatric surgery has been shown to reduce the body’s production of ghrelin, the hormone that stimulates appetite. Also, weight loss surgery Turkey increases the production of hormones such as GLP-1, which has a positive effect on insulin production. When there is more insulin, the body is better able to move blood sugar into the cells to be used for energy, rather than letting it build up in the bloodstream.

These changes might begin to take place soon after bariatric surgery Turkey, to the point where many of my patients have been able to lower their dosage of diabetes medication right away. Within 1-2 years, the majority of them experience remission of their diabetes and no longer need to take any medication at all.

Conditions like sleep apnea and the fatty liver disease usually get better, too.

Gastric Bypass in Turkey

Gastric bypass Turkey is a combined restrictive and malabsorptive procedure. Firstly, the surgeons create a pouch, in the same position and of a similar size to that created with the gastric band.

They create this pouch using metal staples that are similar to stitches. The stomach is cut through so that the pouch is no longer attached to the rest of the stomach. The top section of the stomach (the pouch) holds your food. The surgeons will count down 75–150cm from the top of your tiny intestine and divide it. They will then bring up the end that isn’t attached to your remaining stomach and attach it to the pouch.

Thus, food will travel from the pouch straight into the small bowel. The divided end of the small bowel that is connected to the remainder of the stomach is then connected 75–150cm below where the other end is joined to the gastric pouch. This provides the digestive juices (gastric and pancreatic juices) to enter the small intestine and digest the food. In this procedure, the main effect is that the amount of food you are able to eat is reduced. Therefore you will fill up quickly and stay full for longer. Most people find that they do not get the same feeling of hunger that they did before the gastric bypass in Turkey.

Most people lose weight quite quickly over the first year following surgery. Patients will usually reach their target weight after 18 months. There is variation in the amount of weight that people lose following surgery. But on average, they lose 65–75% of their excess body weight. Adherence to dietary advice result in greater weight loss and better weight maintenance. The dietitian will discuss with you what changes you would necessary to make to your eating patterns to have the best weight loss results.

Gastric Bypass Turkey

Gastric bypass Turkey with total cholecystectomy has a very elaborate process that bariatric surgeons operate on when patients are needed to both lose weight and have biliary illness. Therefore, although it is a very sensitive operation, it is successfully carried out by surgeons in Turkey as recommended by Healthy Türkiye.

Gastric Bypass, Laparoscopic

Gastric bypass Turkey is a surgery preferred by patients who want to lose weight. Patients often resort to the laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB) method. It is an operation in which minimal parts are removed. A healthy appearance is achieved with a decrease in appetite after the operation.

Gastric Band Surgery Turkey

Gastric band surgery Turkey is a restrictive procedure in which a band is placed around the top area of the stomach. This creates a small pouch above the band, with the main area of the stomach below. The band creates a narrowing between the top and bottom parts of the stomach. It is filled with fluid via a port placed under the skin. This procedure stops the food from passing quickly into the stomach, keeping food sitting in the pouch. The food stimulates the nerves at the top of the stomach to give you a feeling of satiety. You should fill up quickly, and stay full for longer, even after only a small amount of food.

In the gastric band surgery Turkey, the stomach and intestines are not cut, stapled, or removed when placing the band. Therefore digestion and absorption aren’t affected. If you need further operations in the future, the band can be removed and the stomach will return to its original shape. The band is not filled with fluid at the time of gastric band surgery Turkey. Your first band-fill will often be about 6 weeks after surgery. These procedures are performed in X-ray or in the outpatient department and take up to 30-40 minutes. You might need your band tightened more than once, to create the correct amount of restriction from the band. Your surgeon will discuss this with you, based on your food intake, eating skills, and gastric band recovery.

You will tend to lose weight steadily over 1-2 years following gastric band surgery. In gastric band surgery Turkey, on average, people lose about 50–60% of their excess body weight. A large variation in results and weight loss is not guaranteed. You should adherence to dietary advice is necessary if you want to achieve these results. Also, your dietitian will discuss with you what changes you would need to make to your eating patterns to have the best weight loss results.

Gastric Sleeve Turkey

The sleeve gastrectomy is a restrictive operation. In gastric sleeve Turkey, the surgeon creates a narrow tube from the stomach and removes the remainder. The surgeon uses metal staples that are similar to stitches and then cut through the stomach. The new stomach tube is about a quarter of the size of the original stomach. Unlike a gastric bypass Turkey where food enters a small pouch and then passes straight into the small bowel, the route that food takes following gastric sleeve Turkey is the same as it took before surgery.

The gastric sleeve Turkey may be performed as a single operation. Most people will lose between 35-50% of their excess weight. Weight loss is generally quite fast, as with the gastric bypass Turkey, but, because you have a larger stomach capacity, and the intestines are not bypassed, most people do not lose as much weight as with the gastric bypass Turkey. Generally, the procedure will be used as the first stage of a 2-stage procedure, if the surgeon feels it is too risky to proceed straight to a gastric bypass. If you will have the gastric bypass Turkey sleeve gastrectomy after some weight loss has occurred (9–18 months after the first surgery) the second operation can be scheduled.

Most patients lose weight quite quickly over the first year following a gastric sleeve Turkey. Most people lose between 35–50% of their excess body weight, although this can vary and some people may lose more. Adherence to dietary advice will result in greater weight loss. The doctor will discuss with you what changes you would need to make to your eating patterns to have the best weight loss results.

Stomach Stapling Surgery In Turkey

Stomach stapling surgery is often performed under general anesthesia. Surgeons will order a number of tests to get information about your health status and history before the operation. These tests will also include blood tests and your body mass index to whether you are suitable for surgery. Depending on this analysis, before stomach stapling surgery, our surgeons will analyze these tests and scans and create the most appropriate and healthy surgery planning for you.

In Turkey, stomach-stapling surgery is performed on average for one-two hour. During the operation, surgeons several tiny incisions will be made in your abdomen. After this procedure, gas will be pumped in to inflate the patient’s abdomen and make it easier to view the stomach. A thin, lighted tool with a tiny camera will be inserted through an incision. During the stomach stapling surgery, a monitor will be used to view the images.

In surgery, staples will be used to divide your stomach into two unequal parts. With these staples, the stomach’s upper area will be a small pouch. The aim is the tiny pouch can hold only ½ to 1 cup of soft, moist, and well-chewed food. But, a normal person’s stomach can hold 4 to 6 cups. End of the stomach stapling surgery, a plastic band will be wrapped around the small opening. This band might be adjusted after an operation by your surgeon. The surgery incisions will be closed with staples. In the last step of surgery, a bandage will be placed over the area.

Gastric Balloon In Turkey

A gastric balloon works by taking up space in the stomach so that you feel full sooner and need to eat less. As you eat a smaller amount, you lose weight. When the gastric balloon is removed you should continue with your newly trained lifestyle and eating patterns. Also, you should be committed to a supervised gastric balloon diet and modified lifestyle both whilst the balloon is inserted and after it has been removed.

The benefits of a gastric balloon are that it offers a non-surgical reversible weight loss treatment option that might helps you to develop long-term new eating habits. Weight loss may also improve any obesity-related health problems such as type 2 diabetes. One major benefit of the gastric balloon is the avoidance of invasive surgery and the risks associated. Also, as it only takes 15 minutes under a mild sedative you can go home the same day. This in turn means that a gastric balloon is less expensive than many surgical methods. But, It is temporary, offering support whilst you start to lose weight and become more active.

Patients with gastric balloons generally experience around 20 and 30% weight loss. But, the amount of weight lost by each patient will vary depending on individual circumstances.

Duodenal Switch Surgery In Turkey

The duodenal switch is a modified form of gastric bypass Turkey, but it is more in terms of the amount of small intestine that it bypasses. This is a major malabsorption procedure that the bypass is performed at the level of the duodenum, not at the level of the stomach. The result is that only around 75 cm of your small intestine, about one-sixth of the entire length, is available to digest and absorb nutrients. After this surgery, you will need constant follow-up for the rest of your life: you will need to come back to see the consultant at regular intervals to make sure you are not developing complications.

Weight loss is sustained and rapid, with 80% of the excess weight loss in 1-2 years after surgery. The results are more effective than with a gastric bypass Turkey or a gastric sleeve Turkey alone. This is a successful treatment for exceptionally morbidly obese patients but it isn’t to be undertaken lightly.
