WEIGHT LOSS SURGERY- MINI GASTRIC BYPASS
Three important and distinct ways the Mini-Gastric Bypass helps your body to shed pounds.
Restrictive - A Small stomach pouch is created restricting the amount of food you can eat.
Malabsorptive - A portion of the small intestine is bypassed. Since the small intestine is responsible for absorbing the calories from the food you eat, bypassing a portion of the small intestine results in fewer calories being absorbed, thus creating additional weight loss.
Hormonal - The hormone ghrelin has been nicknamed the "Hunger Hormone" by researchers because of its significant effect on appetite. Gastric Bypass results in a fall in ghrelin levels resulting in a reduced appetite.
