Gastric band surgery could play an important role in treating type 2 diabetes in people who are overweight, but not obese, according to a new study from Monash University.
A lightweight pair of eyeglasses that can monitor a patient’s pupils might help physicians detect diabetic autonomic neuropathy sooner – a condition that is common among people with type 1 and type 2 diabetes.
Patients who have the Gastric band fitted are more able to achieve good weight loss results because the practitioner is able to monitor and adjust how much food the Patient consumes. This is good for the patient as it encourages them to maintain the diets recommended by the Practitioners, and the Practitioners like it because it allows them to monitor the patients progress over time.
The entire procedure is done laparoscopically, where laparoscopes are used by the Surgeons to gain access through the abdominal wall through small surgical incisions.
