For decades, medical circles have debated over the connection between diabetes and weight. It is evident that diet control can help immensely in managing diabetes. However, weight management isn’t easy, specifically for those who have tried everything but still have got no success. For such individuals, weight loss surgery is an option best considered. According to our weight loss expert, Dr. Wadiwala, qualified candidates can control their diabetes after a weight loss surgery if they are committed enough to make lifestyle changes afterwards. Among many other options, the best and the most convenient is the Gastric Sleeve.

What Is A Gastric Sleeve?

Gastric Sleeve or Sleeve Gastrectomy is a process in which a portion of the stomach is removed via surgery and is transformed into a tube-like structure also known as a sleeve. The sleeve is then directly linked to the intestines. The shrunken size reduces the individuals’ hunger, thereby reducing weight and aiding in controlling diabetes.

How Is It Related To Diabetes

Studies have shown that more than two-third patients with type 2 diabetes are overweight or obese. A gastric Sleeve can drastically help the patients by limiting their appetite, regulating the metabolism and normalizing the hormones. Furthermore, weight loss surgery has a significant impact on the individual’s blood sugar levels. After a sleeve and subsequent changes in weight and lifestyle, a patient might even be able to reduce or completely eliminate the need for medications.
