What is Jejunum Bypass?
The small intestine lies between the stomach and large intestine around 6 meters in length. It is comprised of three portions; duodenum, jejunum and ileum. The jejunum is approximately 2.5 meters in length. It contains muscular flaps and villi to captivate the products of digestion. The ileum comes next, measuring around 3 m, and ends at the cecum. It absorbs any nutrients that got past the jejunum, with major absorptive products being vitamin B12 and bile acids. A small pouch is created and the intestine is bypassed by the stream of food.
Further Information About the Procedure
Type 2 diabetes imposes a significant health burden worldwide. With the availability and feasibility of weight loss surgeries the overall health of an individual can improve without any additional efforts. Of course, maintaining weight might require certain effort. Conventional treatment of obesity and its chronic metabolic dysfunction is partial and often inept. Effective and long term management of obesity and Type 2 diabetes remains a major challenge. The jejunum bypass aids in controlling type 2 diabetes which results from obesity.
In gastric sleeve Jejunal bypass the length of small intestine is reduced by approximately 3 meters. The food will go through the newly created stomach pouch and will empty in the last portion of the small intestine. Approximately three-fourths of the small intestine is bypassed by the food stream.
The small intestine carries out 90% of the food digestion. Bile and pancreatic enzymes are vital for the breakdown and absorption of protein and fat. Initially it helps to reduce the amount of food that is consumed. The lining of the jejunum is precise for the absorption by enterocytes of small nutrient particles which have been previously digested by enzymes in the duodenum. The jejunum is betrothed in magnesium absorption. The patients can have normal food unlike other surgeries where there are dietary restrictions. There is a significant amount of small bowel that is bypassed by the food stream. The food does not mix well with the bile and enzymes, it results in a decrease in absorption of calories and nutrients. The bypass has an effect on the gut hormone which has an impact on hunger and satiety as well as blood sugar levels. It is considered to be the most effective surgery as far as the diabetes as concerned.
