Gastric bypass with no side effects, is it possible? Gastric bypass is a surgical procedure that creates a stomach pouch, separating a small portion of the stomach from the rest of the organ. This pouch is connected to a part of the small intestine, allowing food to enter the newly created stomach through the food pipe and rapidly into the intestine. The bypassed part of the stomach and intestine is essential for absorption of fats and nutrients, such as vitamin B12, calcium, magnesium, and folic acid.
This quick food movement stimulates L cells in the last part of the small intestine to secrete hormones like GLP1, which improve metabolism and suppress appetite, and enhance anti-obesity and anti-diabetic effects. This metabolic process is based on hormonal activity and may evolve with further modifications.
New bypass procedures, inspired by Sergio Santoro’s bipartite transport concept*, allow food to pass through the stomach and intestines without division. This allows nutrients to be absorbed as part of the food passes through the natural pathway. A smaller portion of food passes through the newly-made connection, stimulating the secretion of hormones GLP1 and PYY, which promote metabolism and enhance anti-obesity and anti-diabetic effects. This true metabolic process is based on hormonal activity and not dependent on preventing food from being absorbed. Sergio Santoro’s work had inspired the development of many new procedures**.
LOC Healthcare LLP has been offering these procedures for four years with excellent results, demonstrating that these bypass procedures have no nutritional side effects.
