Diabetes (Metabolic) Surgery
Diabetic Surgery/Ileal Interposition with BMI-adjusted Sleeve Gastrectomy
Ileum is the 3rd & last part of the small intestine. Ileal interposition involves a transplant of a segment of the ileum, to the beginning of the small intestine (after the stomach), or to the beginning of the 2nd part of small intestine, in jejunal portion.
In addition to this, a portion of the stomach is also removed. This reduces the amount of ghrelin (the hunger hormone), which leads to early satiety and also reduces intra-cellular insulin resistance. It also prevents gastric dilatation, avoiding vomiting and nausea. The surgery does not cause any malabsorption. It can be done in normal weight / low BMI individuals.
