WHAT IS THE DIABETES?

Diabetes is a long-term lethal disease that affects the entire world. It is defined as high levels of glycemia or blood sugar, progressively affecting all organs.

Currently, diabetes affects more than 150 million people worldwide and that number is expected to increase rapidly More than 90% of people with the disease have the Type 2 form, which is associated with obesity and overweight, lack of physical activity, family history and advanced age. Unlike type 1 diabetes in which the pancreas does not produce enough insulin, the pancreas in patients with type 2 diabetes produces enough insulin, but for unknown reasons, the body is unable to use insulin. Diabetes can lead to blindness, heart and vascular disease, stroke, kidney failure, amputations and nerve damage. Current therapies, which include diet, exercise, oral antidiabetic medications and insulin do not always cure the disease.

TRADITIONAL THERAPY FOR DIABETES

The goal of treatment is to improve the symptoms of diabetes by normalizing blood glucose levels. The current objectives are to prevent long-term complications, such as eye and kidney diseases, damage to nerves and blood vessels. Strict control of blood glucose reduces the risk of death, stroke, heart failure and other complications. The glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1C) is a test that determines the risk of long-term complications. It measures the amount of glucose that has been sticking to red blood cells and other cells.

When diet and exercise are not enough to maintain normal blood glucose levels, medications may be needed. They work by activating the pancreas to produce more insulin, which helps insulin work better, decreasing the absorption of carbohydrates from the intestine or decreasing the production of glucose in the liver. Poor glycemic control despite changes in lifestyle and taking medications means that insulin must be injected.

BARIATRIC SURGERY

BARIATRIC SURGERY CAN CONTROL DIABETES IN SOME PATIENTS TO LAST YEARS; WITHOUT MEDICATING AND REVERTING THE DAMAGE TO THE ORGANS.

Bariatric surgery, previously used only to treat obesity, is now considered a control option for type 2 diabetes, not only in obese patients but also in people with normal weight or moderate overweight 4 people.

Metabolic Surgery Dominican Republic improves diabetes regardless of weight loss, through mechanisms that are unclear. The Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, mini bypass and the duodenal switch improve diabetes by rapid weight loss, excluding (bypassing) the initial portion of the jejunum from the flow of nutrients and altering the production of various intestinal hormones, which improves the secretion and insulin resistance.
