New Surgical Procedure for Type 2 Diabetes Shows a 95% Remission

Posted: Sunday, August 29, 2010

A Brazilian surgeon has developed a new procedure usinging surgical intervention through "Ileal Transposition" (or small intestinal switch) that can effectively control Type 2 diabetes.

Dr. Aureo Ludovico de Paula with his Indian counterpart Dr. Surendra Ugale, addressed the first international conference and live workshop on this procedure. Ugale stated, "The new research has shown that there are some intestinal hormones which have a great effect on the pancreas and insulin secretion especially in response to food intake. Dr. Paula has devised a laparoscopic operation which he claims is proving to be a cure for Type 2 diabetes."

Paula said, "The surgery can control diabetes without insulin, arrest the metabolic syndrome of the body organ deterioration, thus avoiding future diabetic complications."

The doctor who has performed 700 surgeries with 95% remissions said the operation involves a long segment of ilium (ending portion of small intestine) which is shifted to the upper small intestinal area, where food particles will reach it very soon on eating a meal.

This causes an immediate secretion of good hormone GLP-1 which acts on the B cells of the pancreas to secrete insulin and control blood sugar.

The fallout is a biochemical process that facilitates insulin secretion in the presence of undigested food and controls Type 2 diabetes, a metabolic disorder that is marked by the failure to absorb sugar and starch due to lack of the hormone insulin, Paula said.

Ugale explained that Type 2 diabetes affects several organs. The solution therefore is to stimulate these hormones in the lower intestine that in turn secrete GLP which in turn stimulates the pancreas to stimulate the insulin and get fresh beta cells.

He said patients who have had diabetes for ten years, are using medication, and are suffering from five associated diseases are ideal candidates for this kind of surgical intervention which costs around $8,500 US.

The surgery not only controls high blood pressure but also improves kidney function, cholesterol levels, reduces excess weight and reduces the need for medication. Patients can eat normally post-surgery.
