Sobrepeso2La weight loss surgery seems to change the metabolism of the body in a way that diet alone does not get, which helps explain why diabetes usually disappears after this operation, even long before achieving weight loss. It is the conclusion of a study by Columbia University in New York and Duke University in North Carolina, in the United States.

Weight loss surgery is becoming increasingly popular, given that costs for obese people lose weight and avoid the health complications that accompany the extra pounds, including diabetes, heart disease, pain joint and some cancers. For the study, the teams measured metabolites, chemical by-products of food present in the body.

The researchers found that, unlike the diet, gastric bypass change the metabolism of a person significantly reducing levels of amino - compounds linked to obesity, diabetes and the resistance to insulin in circulation. People with gastric bypass underwent the operation known as Roux-en-Y, in which doctors surgically reduces the size of the stomach so that patients eat too. Niggard said that it is not clear why reduce the size of the stomach would have this effect, but yes that Bariatric Surgery generates significant metabolic changes. Understand how gastric bypass affects metabolism could shed light on treatments for type 2 diabetes, a global epidemic that is strongly related to obesity and with little practice exercise.
