Duodenal Switch With Biliopancreatic Diversion - Know More About This Surgery!

A biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch is a less common kind of weight-loss procedure. The procedure is conducted in two steps. The first step involves sleeve gastrectomy, where about 80 percent of the stomach gets removed, hence leaving behind a small stomach, in the shape of a tube. Though the valve, which releases food to the small intestine remains intact along with a small portion of the small intestine that normally stays connected to the stomach. The second step ensures that the major part of the intestine gets bypassed through connecting the end portion of the intestine to the duodenum close to the stomach. A Biliopancreatic Diversion (BPD) puts a limit on how much one can eat and thus reduces the nutrients from getting absorbed, which includes fats and proteins.

BPD is usually conducted as a single procedure but in some selective situations, the procedure might get performed as two separate operations, sleeve gastrectomy and that is followed by intestinal bypass once the process of losing weight has begun.

Why the surgery is conducted?
A Duodenal Switch with Biliopancreatic Diversion is done in order to assist a person in losing excess weight and thus reduce the risk of developing potential life-threatening health problems related to health, which includes:

Eligible candidates for the surgery

  • This surgery is mostly done only when people have tried to lose weight by making improvements in their diet and exercise habits.
  • Still, this surgery is not for every individual who is overweight. People would have to go through an extensive process of screening to determine if they qualify.
  • Patients, who become eligible, have to be willing to make permanent changes so as to lead a healthy lifestyle both before as well as after the surgery.
  • This might include long-term plans where they follow-up by monitoring if they are maintaining their nutrition, lifestyle, behaviour and also their medical conditions.

Risks associated with the surgery
This particular surgery, as with any other surgery, carries some potential risks. They are both in the short-term and in the long-term.

Risks associated with BPD/DS are similar to any abdominal surgery and include:

Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. The duty of your mind is to think. You cannot control your mind's thinking. Once you just leave your mind without diversion, it always ends up in negative territory. Over thinking leads to obsession, self talking and laziness. But certainly you can divert your thinking. You can make your mind to be always positive by engaging in creative activities, hobbies, games and passionate towards whatever you do. Thereby you can reduce your stress and tension also. Once you can do this, loss of proper sleep and stress also can be made normal. Anyhow, there is nothing to worry. Most of the psychological problems can be cured with scientific therapy methods. Take care.

I am student of mechanical engineer, I'm not able to concentrate on studies, my mind diversion is full, so I can't able to study for 1 hour, and which table are good for memory power, so please suggest me.

You are distracting from your aim. It shows weakness of your mind and nothing else. Just control your mind and think about your future. Studies is the easiest way to attain success and sometimes even glory. You will realise my words after few years. Just concentrate your mind on your studies and be focused because you will be known by your own name only after you attain heights and studies is a short cut to attain new heights. So always keep this in mind and target your goals, you will never forget. I will help you in this direction by prescribing you homoeopathic medicines----------- bacoppa monneri (wilmar schwabe india) chew 2 tab twice daily------- bren-up (allen) drink 2 spoon 3 times daily------------- bramhari pranayam daily for 15 minutes ------- report after 30 days-----------------

I would emphasise that I am not suggesting that homeopathy should be used as the only treatment in serious depressive illness where there are feelings of wanting to die or a risk of suicide, or in mental health problems such as bipolar disorder (manic depression), schizophrenia or severe postnatal depression.

Since 10 months, i'm facing mind diversion problem. I'm a civil engineer and I have to make calls and receive calls as my work is to manage concrete. For that I need to use mobile phone for long hours. Is this the cause for my mind diversion problem. Does making long hour calls causes mind diversion. For example "i'll start writing reports in the mean while if I get a whatsapp message i'll open and scroll to chats and forget my reports work. After 10-15 min i'll come to know about the previous work" this is just an example but i'm facing this type of problems everyday. Can anyone please suggest me to get rid of this problem.

Exercise (your body). Not only can you compare exercising your mind to exercising your body, exercise primarily helps our brain’s ability to ignore distractions, although they aren’t exactly sure why. I would venture to say that the discipline it takes to push through the pain of a workout strengthens the same supply of willpower that we use to ignore the itch of distractions in order to keep working/focusing.

Dear lybrate-user, Your Biggest competitor are not your classmates but your own mind which should be controlled with practice and determination so there is no question of jealousy. To know how to practically overcome jealousy and distraction please read Srila Prabhupada's books from your nearest ISKCON center in your free time from studies.
