Diabetes needs to be treated in order to normalize sugar levels in the bloodstream and to prevent long-term complications, such as eye and kidney disease, from harming the nerves and blood vessels. Normalized blood sugar levels reduce the risk of death, stroke, heart failure and other complications. Tests designed to detect levels of cholestatic glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c) can determine the risk of long-term complications. This test measures the amount of glucose that binds to red blood cells and other cells. Decreasing the HbA1c level even by 1% reduces the risk of complications by 25%.
The first goal in the treatment of type 2 diabetes is to improve symptoms by normalizing blood glucose levels. Subsequent targets are preventing long-term complications, such as eye and kidney disease, from causing damage to the nerve and blood vessels. Recent studies have shown that tight control of blood sugar can reduce various long-term complications such as eye, kidney, and nerve damage.
The first step in the treatment of type 2 diabetes is diet and exercise. If they are not enough to maintain normal blood sugar levels, one may need to take medicines that trigger the pancreas to produce more insulin, help more with insulin, reduce the absorption of carbohydrates in the intestines, or reduce the production of sugar in the liver. If you have insufficient blood sugar control despite lifestyle changes and medications you will need to take insulin. Some people with Type 2 diabetes are able to release medications after the diet, but it is sometimes quite challenging to achieve and maintain a healthy weight. Metabolic surgery methods can be a permanent solution to Type 2 diabetes treatment if you have failed by trying diets!
Biliopancreatic Diversion, Duodenal Switch and Gastric Bypass procedures are proven methods with high metabolic efficiency.
Minimal Invasive Techniques
Minimally invasive surgery; faster operations contributing to a rapid healing process, less anesthesia, much smaller incisions and less scars.
