A gastric Balloon is a special inflatable balloon which is placed inside of the patient’s stomach, and once inserted is then expanded so it limits or reduces the amount of food which you are able to eat at any one time. Is it a Weight-Loss Miracle Cure or Short-Term Fix? Is the gastric balloon Pill A magic bullet, so to speak, that claims the kind of weight-loss results that so far only invasive surgery has produced, and is not just for the severely overweight “We’re going to call it an alternative for some, especially those who are afraid of surgery or don’t fully qualify for surgery,” he said. “It’s going to be, definitely, a first step for those extremely overweight and have, let’s say, a very high-risk for surgery. I don’t want to take that risk.”   Read more…   Gastric balloon banner 800x150_banner     facebook like banner

Diabetes Remission After Gastric Lap Band Surgery

Diabetes Remission After Adjustable Gastric Band Surgery

52% of an adjustable gastric Band surgery test group had remission of their diabetes.

Hospital in Le Havre

Hospital in Le Havre

Bariatric gastric band surgery improves glycaemia in obese people with type 2 diabetes, but its effects are uncertain in overweight people with this disease. We aimed to identify whether laparoscopic adjustable gastric band surgery can improve glucose control in people with type 2 diabetes who were overweight but not obese.

Methods

We did an open-label, parallel-group, randomised controlled trial between Nov 1, 2009, and June 30, 2013, at one centre in Melbourne, Australia. Patients aged 18—65 years with type 2 diabetes and a BMI between 25 and 30 kg/m2 were randomly assigned (1:1), by computer-generated random sequence, to receive either multidisciplinary diabetes care plus laparoscopic adjustable gastric band surgery or multidisciplinary diabetes care alone. The primary outcome was diabetes remission 2 years after randomisation, defined as glucose concentrations of less than 7·0 mmol/L when fasting and less than 11·1 mmol/L 2 h after 75 g oral glucose, at least two days after stopping glucose-lowering drugs. Analysis was by intention to treat. This trial is registered with the Australian New Zealand Clinical Trials Registry, number ACTRN12609000286246.

Findings

51 patients were randomised to the multidisciplinary care plus gastric band group (n=25) or the multidisciplinary care only group (n=26), of whom 23 participants and 25 participants, respectively, completed follow-up to 2 years. 12 (52%) participants in the multidisciplinary care plus gastric band group and two (8%) participants in the multidisciplinary care only group achieved diabetes remission (difference in proportions 0·44, 95% CI 0·17—0·71; p=0·0012). One (4%) participant in the gastric band group needed revisional surgery and four others (17%) had a total of five episodes of food intolerance due to excessive adjustment of the band.

Interpretation

When added to multidisciplinary care, laparoscopic adjustable gastric band surgery for overweight people with type 2 diabetes improves glycaemic control with an acceptable adverse event profile. Laparoscopic adjustable gastric band surgery is a reasonable treatment option for this population.

Low Price gastric band surgery in France is provided by our hospitals in Northern France.

Dr. Michael Feiz, MD Agrees with Research that Bariatric Surgery Curbs Type II DiabetesDr. Feiz is a noted bariatric surgeon who has successfully completed hundreds of operations in his research program. Dr. Feiz is hopeful that his work as a bariatric surgeon will stem the tide of seriously obese Americans suffering from type II diabetes, as weight loss surgery is one of the most promising antidotes to the disease. He strongly encourages type II diabetics, or those predisposed to the disease, to consider bariatric surgery as a tool to lose weight and get control of their diabetes once and for all.
