Is diabetes surgery in Turkey a permanent cure for type 2 diabetes?

Before we begin, we need to be precise. 

Can type 2 diabetes be completely cured?

Yes – metabolic and bariatric surgery is the permanent treatment of type 2 diabetes. Until recently, it was not possible to cure type 2 diabetes, but a large number of new studies in metabolic and bariatric surgeries and the results obtained from type 2 diabetes surgeries proved that metabolic and bariatric surgeries are a proved permanent cure for type 2 diabetes.

What is surgical treatment of type 2 diabetes?

Type 2 diabetes treatments are similar to obesity treatments. This is because both diseases are closely related to each other.

Both diabetes and obesity are conditions of deterioration of the body's metabolism. Therefore, after the treatment of both diseases, patients experience rapid weight loss and type 2 diabetes regresses.

After the treatment of both diseases, the body's ability to use and balance sugar in a healthy way is regained.

Surgical treatment for type 2 diabetes involves various procedures that aim to control blood sugar levels, improve insulin resistance, and reduce the risk of complications.

These procedures include metabolic surgery, transitbipartition, illealinterposition surgery, gastric bypass surgery, sleeve gastrectomy, and biliopancreatic diversion with a duodenal switch.

They are typically considered for people with a BMI of 35 or higher who have not been able to manage their diabetes with lifestyle changes or medication.

These surgeries have been shown to result in significant weight loss and improved blood sugar control, but they carry risks and should be considered carefully.

Which surgery is used as type 2 diabetes treatment?

The method of type 2 diabetes surgery in Turkey is decided on the basis of the doctor's examination and the patient's condition.

The aim of all surgeries offered for the treatment of type 2 diabetes is to enable patients' bodies to use insulin more effectively and to control blood sugar.

How is surgical treatment of type 2 diabetes performed?

Surgery treatment of type 2 diabetes in Turkey is applied with various surgical methods that vary according to the patient's current health status. Generally, bariatric surgery is performed instead of metabolic surgery in patients who have reached the morbidly obese level.

If the patient's current metabolic status, symptoms, and ailments indicate diabetes, then the doctor may refer directly to type 2 diabetes surgeries (illeal interposition or transit bipartisan). These surgeries are the most successful surgeries applied in the treatment of type 2 diabetes.

The aim of both operations is to bring the patient's intestinal part, which increases insulin secretion, to the forefront of contact with food.

In ileal interposition surgery, the contact of pancreatic and bile fluids of the intestine with food is delayed and the intestine comes into contact with food more quickly.

In transit bipartisan surgery, on the other hand, is aimed at the intestine to digest food faster and thus to increase insulin secretion.

For both types of surgery to be successful, the patient's pancreas must produce insulin.

How does metabolic surgery work?

Whether bariatric surgeries or metabolic surgeries are performed with laparoscopic methods. Laparoscopic surgery is the opening of 5-6 holes of 1 cm in the abdomen of the patient and the surgery is performed by placing the surgical instruments on the patient's body through these holes. Both bariatric surgeries and metabolic surgeries take an average of 1.5 - 3 hours.

The main goal of metabolic surgery operations is that the nutrients entering the digestive system reach the small intestine more quickly. In this way, the food is digested quickly and the hormones GLP-1 and PPY, which are secreted during digestion, allow the pancreas to secrete more insulin.

Diabetes Surgery Recovery Time

The recovery time for diabetes surgery can vary depending on the specific surgery performed and the individual patient. In general, however, most patients can expect to spend a few days in the hospital after the surgery and then several weeks recovering at home before returning to normal activities.

After being discharged from the hospital, patients will need to follow specific post-operative instructions provided by their surgeon. These may include dietary restrictions and modifications, wound care, pain management, and exercise recommendations. 

Possible Complications After Metabolic Surgery

As with any surgical procedure, complications may occur after metabolic surgery. Although this possibility is very small for patients, doctors take preventive measures to prevent these possibilities.

Possible risks after type 2 diabetes include the risk of bleeding, infection, ulcers, hernias, gallstones, dumping syndrome and obstruction in the first 24 hours.

It's important to note that the risk of complications varies depending on the type of metabolic surgery and the individual patient. Patients should discuss the risks and benefits of metabolic surgery with their doctor before undergoing the procedure.

How To Prepare For Diabetes Surgery?

  • You should stop using aspirin and blood thinners 1 week before the date of surgery.

  • You should inform your surgeon and anesthesiologist about your allergies.

  • You must stop smoking before the surgery

  • You should not consume alcohol before surgery

  • You must follow the rules communicated to you by your healthcare team
