Regardless of the mouth, the effect of weight loss is naturally not great. On the 16th, Nanjing Drum Tower Hospital and Jiangsu Provincial People s Hospital officially launched a new type of weight loss method: Diverting the stomach for super-obese patients . It is that after surgery, the food skips the stomach and goes directly to the small intestine. In this way, the volume of food that a person can accept will be reduced to one-third of the original, in order to achieve the effect of weight loss.
Mr. Zhang, a citizen of Nanjing, was one of the people who had undergone gastric diversion surgery. Now he weighs more than 140 kilograms and has a waist circumference of 2 feet 3 inches. Just one year ago, he weighed more than 240 kilograms and a waist circumference of 3 feet 2 inches. Compared with before, Mr. Zhang lost 100 pounds. In previous years, he also tried various weight loss methods, but the results were not satisfactory. After undergoing gastric diversion surgery, Mr. Zhang s weight was significantly reduced.
Without Without food passing through the stomach, people s digestive ability will weaken, and at the same time people s ability to accept food will decline. Although the absorbed food is reduced to 1/3, it is enough to supply people s daily activities and life needs. It was easy to be turned into excess parts of fat, which was rejected by the human digestive system. Even if obese patients want to eat, they will be rejected by the body to achieve weight loss.
Because the diversion of the stomach skips the stomach and duodenum directly, it also plays a good role in the treatment of type 2 diabetes. After surgery, the human physiological body becomes more sensitive to insulin, and insulin secretion in the body will increase, which will enable us to control our blood sugar very well, said Sun Xitai, deputy chief physician of general surgery at Gulou Hospital.
However, Sun Xitai also warned that most obese patients are not suitable for gastric diversion surgery: if it is not obese to life-threatening safety, then such surgery is not necessary; followed by patients over 60 years old, also Patients with a history of more than 15 years of diabetes are unsuitable.
In addition, experts also remind everyone that gastric diversion surgery has changed the physical structure of the human after all. Therefore, some complications such as diarrhea, constipation, and intestinal infarction are prone to occur after surgery, so patients need to take vitamin tablets and calcium tablets for a long time.
