Beverly Hills-based weight loss clinic Dr. Feiz & Associates comments on a recent article that bariatric surgery is the only well-documented successful approach to fighting obesity.

LOS ANGELES, April 30, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- An April 13 article on Diabetes In Control

described a recent study that found further evidence that weight loss surgery can cause a remission of type 2 diabetes symptoms with remarkable speed in the aftermath of an operation. In the study, participants were observed over a period of more than five years. It was found that, after one year, an impressive 75 percent of the participants were in complete remission while others saw an improvement in their blood sugar levels. Beverly Hills-based weight loss clinic Dr. Feiz & Associates says that the results confirm what specialists have long known, that weight loss surgery is an extremely effective treatment for type 2 diabetes.

Dr. Feiz & Associates notes that, though the mechanism behind this relationship is not fully understood, it is believed that some of the regulatory chemicals in the body that are associated with type 2 diabetes are reduced or altered after weight loss surgery occurs. Much more obviously, the link between obesity and type 2 diabetes is a clear fact and it is therefore not surprising that removing a primary cause of the diabetes would also tend to lessen or eliminate it. The clinic adds, however, that it's important for prospective patients to understand that weight loss surgery is not a cure-all and, while it makes weight loss a great deal more achievable, in no way does it make it automatic. A great deal of effort on the part of the patient is still needed.

Dr. Feiz & Associates adds that today's most popular procedure, sleeve gastrectomy has largely supplanted the older and more radical gastric bypass surgery. While the bypass is the most studied procedure due to its age, the clinic explains that, rather than fully restructuring the digestive system and literally bypassing much of the intestinal tract as is done in a gastric bypass operation, a sleeve gastrectomy removes approximately 75-85% of the stomach and reshapes the remaining portion into a pouch-like structure, leaving the rest of the digestive system alone. In doing so, it becomes difficult and uncomfortable for patients to consume large portions of food as was likely their habit in the past. At the same time, removing most of the stomach also appears to provide important hormonal benefits that may reduce or eliminate the nagging feelings of hunger that eventually sabotage most weight loss efforts.
