Benefits and Risks of RYGB in Type 2 Diabetes

Four letter acronyms are like expletives with that number-effective but hurtful. RYGB can sure help with type-2 diabetes, but then it can kill you as well!

RYBG (Roux-en-Y gastric bypass) is a form of major surgery which physically curtails how much you can eat or drink, restricts calorie uptake from ingestion, and protects essential digestive processes, all in one go. Every major surgery carries risks of infections and clots in blood vessels, but RYGB is even more dangerous because it involves stitching back excised parts of intestines and stapling parts of the stomach as well.

Any man more than 100 pounds overweight, and women more than 80 pounds overweight, is a candidate for RYGB. However, you may wish to consider the option even if you have trouble managing your type 2 diabetes. I would hope that this should not be the case, given the state-of-the-art in terms of diet control, exercise management, and the latest drugs and insulin delivery forms. Perhaps the dire risks of RYGB will entice you to follow your prescription for type 2 diabetes control more strictly! Seriously, RYGB is a realistic option if you run the risk of developing complications from uncontrolled or poorly managed diabetes. Better lose a part of your gut than your eyes, feet, or kidneys!

Ask you doctor about RYGB or let me know if you would like links to detailed information
