If cardiovascular diseases, diabetes and stroke develop due to high blood sugar, an increase in bad cholesterol (LDL), a decrease in good cholesterol (HDL), and high blood pressure caused by obesity, this condition is called metabolic syndrome

Why metabolic surgery should be prefered?

Today, in addition to weight control, surgical procedures to treat metabolic syndrome are called metabolic surgery. With bariatric and metabolic surgery, both weight control is provided and fasting blood glucose can be withdrawn to normal limits and diseases (such as kidney, eye, cardiovascular diseases, stroke) can be under control.

What are the metabolical surgery methods?

Bariatric and metabolic surgical methods are examined in 3 different classes according to mechanisms of action. Similar to obesity surgery, these are classified as restrictive, malabsorptive (absorption disruptive) and methods in which the two are together.

  • gastric (stomach) bypass
  • -Roux-n-Y
  • -Mini(with single anastomosis) – Gastric bypass
  • Biliopancreatic diversion + Duodenal Switch
  • Ileal interposition
  • Transit Bipartition.

Who can be a canditate for metabolic surgery?

Patients with Type 2 diabetes who have no obstacles to receiving general anesthesia, difficulty controlled by drugs and who have obesity or metabolic syndrome and can secrete enough insulin from their pancreas are candidates for metabolic surgery.

How does metabolic surgery work?

As a result of the hormonal condition changing after surgery, insulin resistance decreases and tissues become sensitive to insulin. In addition, beta cell functions that secrete insulin in the pancreas improve.

Up to 90% of diabetes and related metabolic syndrome are improved for 8-10 years after surgery in patients suitable for surgery.
