Hello Everybody!

This is Dr. Muffi from Digestive Health Institute. I wanna speak about metabolic syndrome, diabetes surgery and its good value for money and why we should be doing it. Diabetes surgery up to now people call it that most people with high sugar, should not get operated. And today's surgeon across the world reconstructed metabolic surgery to treat diabetes. Your high sugar which stops medications like insulin and various others. So, how is this transition occurs? Something which is called as bariatric surgery which is actually meant for weight loss or people who are very obese, surgeon realize that suddenly sugar has come under control, cholesterol seems to come down.

And therefore, 3 main prone of metabolic syndrome which is diabetes, type 2 diabetes, hypertension and cholesterol. And that's how surgery called bariatric surgery need to do metabolic surgery. Now we know that weight causes a lot of problem across the world. So, the weight causes the problem from head to toe, hypertension, thyroid problems, respiratory problems, sleep apnea and heart failure. It causes a problem in the stomach which are like hernia reflux disease, gallstones, hepatitis, obesity, pancreatitis, development of hernia because of obesity. Obesity is the cause of infertility. A lot of pain like osteoarthritis and high uric acid levels. So, all these things are because of diabetes. 40 different cancers are directly linked to obesity. So in men, there are high chances of prostate cancer and lung cancer. Much higher chances of uterine cancer and breast cancer. So the preventions are the best form of cure.

So, what happen when your BMI is more than 37.5 or it is above 32.5 and with uncontrolled diabetes, with the most conservative association across the world that such as American Diabetes Association, The International Diabetes, if your sugar is not under control with medications, at best you can go for metabolic surgery or bariatric surgery. You can't stick with good sugar control. A chronic diabetic would have the vessels of his heart, his eyes, his kidneys, kidney damage, heart failure because of diabetes, you can have blindness because of diabetes or loss of sensation in the foot in diabetic neuropathy. The best way to get treated with metabolic surgery. What happens with type 1 diabetes. In this bariatric surgery does not cure. But if you are obese, reduce your weight so that the insulin level comes down and other complications will also come down.
