The Effect of a Gastric Bypass on Type 2 Diabetes in the Morbidly Obese Patient

2014-07-24 14:06:54 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Proof of concept, of RYGBP and its capabilities to cure type 2 diabetes (DM 2) and sleep apnea has already been recognized in the reports on weight loss surgery.

The investigators project aims to prove that RYGBP also recovers the beta cell function (BCF) Clamp tests, the gold standard for testing IS and BCF, will be performed preoperative and early postoperatively.

Aims & methodology:

Analysis of the short-term effect of gastric bypass and sleeve gastrectomy on insulin sensitivity and beta cell function.

Preoperative baseline insulin sensitivity and beta cell function will be assessed with euglycemic and hyperglycemic clamp tests. These results will be compared with the results of the same tests carried out 3 weeks postoperative.

To determine if the duodenal exclusion is causing this effect. The results of the clamp tests 3 weeks postoperative will be compared

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The time period before the development of symptomatic diabetes. For example, certain risk factors can be observed in subjects who subsequently develop INSULIN RESISTANCE as in type 2 diabetes (DIABETES MELLITUS, TYPE 2).

A subclass of DIABETES MELLITUS that is not INSULIN-responsive or dependent (NIDDM). It is characterized initially by INSULIN RESISTANCE and HYPERINSULINEMIA; and eventually by GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE; HYPERGLYCEMIA; and overt diabetes. Type II diabetes mellitus is no longer considered a disease exclusively found in adults. Patients seldom develop KETOSIS but often exhibit OBESITY.

A severe type of hyperlipidemia, sometimes familial, that it is characterized by the elevation of both plasma CHYLOMICRONS and TRIGLYCERIDES contained in VERY-LOW-DENSITY LIPOPROTEINS. Type V hyperlipoproteinemia is often associated with DIABETES MELLITUS and is not caused by reduced LIPOPROTEIN LIPASE activity as in HYPERLIPOPROTEINEMIA TYPE I .

Urination of a large volume of urine with an increase in urinary frequency, commonly seen in diabetes (DIABETES MELLITUS; DIABETES INSIPIDUS).

A subtype of DIABETES MELLITUS that is characterized by INSULIN deficiency. It is manifested by the sudden onset of severe HYPERGLYCEMIA, rapid progression to DIABETIC KETOACIDOSIS, and DEATH unless treated with insulin. The disease may occur at any age, but is most common in childhood or adolescence.
