Treatments at Metabolic Surgery Clinic
Metabolic Surgery Clinic from Istanbul is a Center of Excellence in Bariatic and Metabolic Surgery, being recognized for the treating with success the following diseases:
The Metabolic surgery is a surgical treatment of the Diabetes Mellitus type 2, representing a new option for the treatment in this disease considered until today a medical treatment only.
Metabolic Surgery derives from Bariatric Surgery or Morbid obesity Surgery. Two types of interventions are realized: the Gastric Bypass and the Duodenum-jejunal Bypass, which consists of excluding the duodenum and the proximal segment from jejunum (thin intestine first potions) of the transit of foods, producing changes in hormones and receivers located in this area, who have to do with the control of glucose.
The insulin in the body of type 2 diabetes patients will not fulfil its function at the cellular level during the pre-operational period.
Either the insulin cannot enter into the cell or if it ever should, it cannot fulfil its functions inside. This is called insulin resistance. After the operation, digestive system hormones, causing insulin resistance, will weaken.
Serious changes occur to digestive system hormones called incretin and ghrelin. As a result, the insulin resistance cycle is broken. The insulin remains free and insulin sensitivity at cell level increases. This means that your sugar will be regulated since your hormones have been changed.
Along with the normalization of blood sugar, cholesterol and triglyceride levels in patients after Metabolic Surgery applications, also problems like hyper-tension, liver lipidosis, eye and kidney damage, and foot ulceration are eliminated with a single operation.
Criteria for patient's selection in this type of Surgery
