Gastric bypass treatment is one of the general surgery treatments that offers a permanent solution to obesity. The rationale of the treatment; It is in the form of reducing the amount of absorption of fat and carbohydrates from the intestines. However, in this case, strict diet follow-up is very important.
The general health status of the individual is followed at strict intervals and the diet is rearranged according to whether the macronutrients are adequately taken.
What is Gastric Bypass?
In our digestive system, nutrients are absorbed in the small intestine and the remaining waste parts are separated and transferred to the large intestine. Most of the digestion of fats takes place in the small intestine.
In gastric bypass treatment, the last absorption stage of digestion in the small intestines is bypassed. In this way, less carbohydrates and fats are stored in the body.
However, it is less preferred than other treatment techniques. This is because it is necessary for the individual to pay close attention to himself or herself. Otherwise, problems such as a decrease in vitamin and mineral values may occur due to poor absorption.
In case of such situations, blood values are regularly checked by the person’s doctor in order to prevent the individual from being harmed. In case of a decrease in value, the body is supported with nutrients.
How is Gastric Bypass Treatment Done?
In the operation, first of all, a large part of the individual’s stomach is deactivated. The stomach is shrunk to have a small cup volume. In this way, even when you consume a very small amount of food, signals of satiety are sent to your brain instantly and you have difficulty in continuing to eat and drink. This will allow you to lose weight over time.
Then, a 130 – 150 cm long part of the small intestine that absorbs sugar and fat the most is disabled.
In this way, the absorption area is bypassed and foods go directly from a small stomach to a place close to the large intestine. Very little absorption (in the amount necessary for blood values) continues to occur in the small intestine tissue located here.
In order to this treatment technique to give successful results, it is very important to follow the individual by a good nutritionist.
