Sleeve with Proximal Jejunal Bypass Procedure Details

There are very few centers in India where gastric sleeve with intestinal bypass for Type 2 diabetes is performed. At CODSILS Mohali, we do this procedure for patients who have poor control of diabetes and obesity or for patients suffering from metabolic syndrome.

Gastric sleeve is done as a standard laparoscopic procedure. After gastric sleeve, we identify the Ligament of Treitz and divide the intestine 40 cm distal to it. Then we create a blind loop of 200 – 300 cm depending on the c-peptide levels of patients and then we do jejuno–jejunostomy to complete the procedure. This procedure requires a high protein intake and lifelong supplements of calcium, multivitamins and Iron.

How Gastric Sleeve with Intestinal Bypass Cause Diabetes reversal / How diabetes surgery works?

  • Gastric sleeve causes calorie restriction, which in turn reduces and divides the load on pancreas. The reduced load matches the amount of insulin produced by pancreas.
  • Calorie restriction also leads to weight loss and it decreases insulin resistance. This also improves the sensitivity of Insulin.
  • Intestinal Bypass is aimed to have enhanced Incretin effect. After adding a bypass, there is swifter delivery of food to the terminal ileum which stimulates the incretin hormones like GLP1 and PYY. This causes enhanced insulin secretion from the pancreas.
  • The combined effect of sleeve with intestinal bypass makes it a very powerful tool for reversal of type 2 Diabetes.

Sex life after Diabetes surgery / Sex weakness after Metabolic Surgery

Most patients with Type 2 Diabetes have underlying neuropathy (weak nerves) and dyslipidemia. Increased cholesterol level and dyslipidemia causes reduced blood supply to the penis. After diabetes surgery, dyslipidemia stops but it takes time for neuropathy to recover. It’s always recommended to go for diabetes surgery before major and irreversible damage has occurred. After diabetes surgery patients often experience increased Libido because of control of Type 2 Diabetes. It’s recommended to take a low calorie, high protein diet and do regular exercise to improve sexual function.

Diabetes Surgery Versus Medical Therapy

The Aim of both treatments is to control your blood sugars and bring your HbA1c < 6.5. Diabetes surgery helps delay the disease progression of type 2 diabetes; whereas despite medical therapy people develop the complications of diabetes like retinopathy, neuropathy, cardiopathy etc. these complications are because Diabetes causes dyslipidemia and metabolic surgery helps in control of dyslipidemia. As per the recent guidelines If your BMI > 40 Kg/m2 and have Type 2 diabetes, Bariatric surgery is the first line of treatment.

Is Sleeve Gastrectomy with PJB Better than Gastric Sleeve alone ?

Gastric sleeve alone can result in resolution of Type 2 Diabetes in morbidly obese patients. Whereas in patients who have poor pancreatic function then intestinal bypass is added to sleeve to have enhanced insulin production and better control of Type 2 Diabetes. After evaluating the pancreatic function of the individual and other parameters, Dr Amit Garg decides if sleeve gastrectomy alone is suitable or an intestinal bypass has to be added for better control of diabetes.

Can Type 2 diabetes reappear after Metabolic / Diabetes surgery

Diabetes is strongly linked with Obesity and it’s a progressive disease. If you are able to maintain weight after diabetes surgery and taking care of your diet and exercise then chances of diabetes recurrence are very low. We haven’t encountered Diabetes recurrence in our patients in 5 years follow up.
