Hi,

My name is Dr. Tulip. I am a Bariatric and Laparoscopic Surgeon practicing at Doctor Tulips Hospital, 4th block, Koramangala.

Why do we need to go on to a diabetic surgery? Because diabetes even though under control with medications over years cause a lot of complications like all of us know. Complications for the heart, complications for the kidney, for the eyes and so on. And India being the diabetic capital, you will find many diabetics , they may not be obese but the diabetics. And the severity of diabetes is higher in our population which means we get complications at very early age after a few years of diabetes.

So, if you undergo this metabolic surgery, you are out of diabetes and you can protect yourself from the complications of diabetes.

Hi!

This is Dr. Tulip. I am a Bariatric and Laparoscopic Surgeon practicing at Dr. Tulip Hospital, 4th block, Koramangala.

We all know that once a diabetic , always a diabetic. But now we have something called as metabolic surgery by which one can be totally free from Diabetes. I mean you can stop your diabetic medications and still your sugar can be in normal limits. You don't need to take any oral diabetic medications and you need not take any insulin. But is this surgery helpful for all types of diabetics? No, we need to be a little careful and a little choosy about this. This surgery is good for, it helps Type 2 diabetics.

Type 2 Diabetics are those people who develop diabetes after the age of 30. They don't have a family history like their parents, grandparents would have had diabetes but those people who develop diabetes in childhood or in their teens less than 30 years are most likely to be Type 1 diabetics wherein the body is not secreting any insulin, the pancreas is not having any insulin to secrete, wherein the surgery the metabolic surgery will not help. Now, is every type 2 diabetic eligible for this surgery? Yes , but we also need to see the amount of pancreatic reserve that is present in that patient. For example, if the patient is suffering from diabetes for 4 to 5 years, the reserve will be much better.

But if they're suffering from diabetes from 15 to 25 years, then the reserve will be a little less and hence the results may not be very good. But all said and done, the results will definitely better. Now, how do we check the pancreatic reserve? There is a blood test which is called as the C-peptide. When we assess this value, if it is more than one, that means the pancreas has a good reserve and the results would be very good. Now how early do we expect the person to be free from diabetes after the surgery?

Even as early as 24 hours after the surgery, the person can be free from diabetes. Now, in some cases where the pancreatic Reserve is not very good then the patient might have to take one tablet, one oral hypoglycemic, maybe for a month or two and then the person can get totally out of diabetes.

Hi!

This is Dr. Tulip. I am a Bariatric and Laparoscopic Surgeon practicing at Dr. Tulip Hospital, 4th block, Koramangala.

Now this surgery for diabetes is called the metabolic surgery. This is done through tiny holes over the tummy so we need not cut open that tummy and what is done if we operate on the stomach and the small intestine. It is called the gastric bypass. So what is happening in the surgery? We divide the stomach into small portions and this small portion, a small pouch, is attached to the small intestine. Which means we are diverting the food directly from the small gastric pouch into the small intestine.

So majority part of the stomach and small intestine , who doesn't enter. How does this help us? Because we are by passing that second part of the deodenum the second part of the deodenum, the harmful factor, the deodenum factor is not released because this is released only when the food touches that part of the stomach of the intestine. Other thing is what we achieved by these bypass is, the food touches, reaches rather, this lower part of the small intestine which is called the idiom which is very early compared to normal and this causes release of the glp 1 hormone normally in three times more than normal.

Now, what happens by this? This hormone is very good for the pancreas it stimulates the pancreas and does define class starts working in a much better way and more insulin sensitization occurs. Normally in type 2 Diabetics we have insulin resistance. So by doing this bariatric surgery when we do the manipulation the hormones, Dipankar starts working better and the person gets out of insulin resistance. So much so that the very next day of surgery, the patient is totally out of diabetes. This is nearly like a wonderful but we do need to take care, we need to make sure the patient of the type 2 diabetic as good pancreatic reserve and is not underweight. We don't do the surgery for underweight people. The person should be either overweight and obese.

Prevention Of Childhood Obesity!

MBBS, Fellowship In Minimally Invasive Bariatric Surgery, Fellowship In Minimally invasive(Keyhole) Surgery
Bariatrician, Bangalore
Prevention Of Childhood Obesity!

Obesity in childhood is on the increase because of the change in lifestyle adapted by us in our day to day life.

We do not realize that our children are observing every thing we do. They look up to us,  their parents as thier idols, role models.They tend to imitate us to the T. One wrong move on our side and you will find them following suit. 

It is high time that we as parents adapt to healthy life style changes -be it a daily walk or exercise and a well planned diet including all nutritious food. We should be able to take some time off our busy schedules and try to change the trend of enterainment which our children are now following-

EVERTHING on the Computer,Be it studies, be it entertainment. This should hange and we should take an active part in bringing about this change. However we can cheat once a week.

Our motto as parents should be "Practice what you preach". We will also remain healthy and so will are children be.

lybrate-user, Nothing can replace a 30 min exercise or walk done on a daily basis to keep fit. Garcinia combogia is not bad, but it is also not helpful without a good diet and exercise.

Name the exercises for weight reduction mam. I too have stretch marks in my arms so it's very embarrassing for me.

MBBS, Fellowship In Minimally Invasive Bariatric Surgery, Fellowship In Minimally invasive(Keyhole) Surgery
Bariatrician, Bangalore
lybrate-user, For weight reduction, a 60 min brisk walk without a break on a daily basis is the best. However you can also replace it with a treadmill or cycling. Whatever you may choose, regularity, speed is what is important to get results. Diet and exercise go hand in hand. So along with exercise, reduction in fried, sweet and rice items along with plenty of vegetables/ fruit and water intake is required. Regarding stretch marks, That is due to over stretching of the skin. There is no solution for stretch marks to disappear, but lasers are available to lighten them. Believe in yourself, be regular and you can do it.

I am a person with fatty liver and low iron having obesity. Can I take fish oil omega 3 or avoid it.
Hi lybrate-user You need to lose approximately 28 kgs. You can take fish oil omega 3.To lose this weight it is not going to be easy. A combination of strict diet AND Walking/ tread mill for minimum of 60 min is required. Considering 2 to 3 kgs per month which is realistic, it will take you 9 to 12 months to do so. This requires a very good will power and dedication. To start with for dieting, avoiding sweets, deep fried, and rice items will be good. 60 min brisk walk non stop is required. Another option could be Bariatric surgery.

lybrate-user, You have approx. 20 kgs to lose. Considering a realistic weight loss of 2 kgs per month it may take you approx. 8 to 10 moths to lose this excess weight. No one can follow any diet plan for this long a period. Hence, a better option would be: 1) avoid sweets, deep fried stuff and rice 2) reduce the portion of your meal intake by 50% and replace with plenty of salads/sprouts. 3) Increase water intake 4) Walk walk walk. 60 minutes, brisk and without a break everyday. There is nothing called as easy weight loss However we do have bariatric surgery, but I would not recommend it for you now, as you can definitely have good results with diet and exercise. I would recommed certain blood tests to be done to rule out any vitamin and mineral defeciencies, before you start your diet.

Lybrate-user, You seem to be approx. 18 kgs overweight. It is very good that you are doing physical activity. But the duration is important. 45 min to 60 min brisk walk is what will help you. Also strict caloric restriction by dieting is recommended. Before starting dieting, kindly get your vitamin and mineral status checked via blood tests. Plenty of salads, spouts will help in restricting caloric intake,

I have gained allot of weight post pregnancy since 1 year .i want to reduce belly fat and sides. Please help me with the best treatment at affordable cost.

lybrate-user, not to worry. Mostly all gain weight during pregnancy. The faster you start dieting and exercising post delivery, the better will be the results. The weight loss required by you is approx. 22 to 24 kgs. Do brisk walk for about 60 min every day. Reduce you food intake by 20% and avoid deep fried and sweet items. Abdominal exercise done at the same time will help you tone up your tummy.

lybrate-user, you seem to be approx. 40 kgs overweight. We call this in medical terms as morbid obesity. Losing this weight with diet and exercise is just not possible. You can lose few kgs, but you will regain it soon. As you have mentioned about your physical challenge, there is no other way better than key hole bariatric surgery. This will help you lose 35 kgs of your excess weight within 6 to 8 months. It is a safe surgery, not to worry.

lybrate-user, You are increasing weight partially due to the medications you are taking and partly due to DECREASED physical activity. You need to have a strict control on your diet and regular brisk walk for 60 min DAILY, or else you may continue to gain weight. Bariatric surgery to lose weight could be a good option.
