                                               Gastric Bypass Methods Of Today
                                                               By Jeff Foster

   With the popularity today's media has placed on physical fitness and the beauty of those who are
physically fit, gastric bypass surgery has gained popularity as a solution for obesity, especially morbid

While there are two primary methodologies within the world of gastric bypass surgery, the original
method, called the "loop" method. Having been practiced in the 1960s, this method is now commonly
avoided because of better advances in research and medicine. Right now, the most common gastric
bypass method is known as the Proximal, or Roux en-Y system.

As with any gastric bypass method, with Proximal, or Roux en-Y gastric bypass surgery, food intake is
significantly restricted due to the mechanical limitations of the stomach.

With this surgery, a small pouch of a stomach is created and essentially closed off from the rest of the
stomach. As you take in food, it moves into this tiny pouch and then on to the `Roux limb' of the small
bowel which is created during surgery. This allows the food to bypass the rest of the stomach and the
first part of the small intestine. With this re-routing of the intestinal tract, the body is unable to absorb
as many calories as previously done. This allows the body to lose weight at a rapid pace.

Finally, the remaining gastric bypass method is known as the biliopancreatic diversion. This method is
used less frequently and is rather complicated. With the biliopancreatic diversion , portions of the
stomach are literally removed from the GI tract. A tiny pouch of remaining stomach is then directly
connected to the end section of the small bowel. Since this method bypasses the remaining intestine
there are less calories absorbed and weight loss occurs.

The gastric bypass methods used today are important advances in the field of surgical medicine and
have helped thousands of people who previously suffered with obesity to lose the weight with which
they struggled for years. No, it is not a quick fix, but in some cases, the gastric bypass methods are
life-saving alternatives to continuing to haul around the excess pounds.

                                      Gastric Bypass - Solution To Weight Loss?
                                                         By Alfred J.James

 The most common surgery for obesity is gastric bypass. The gastric bypass results in an effective
resolution of major illnesses that accompany obesity. Most gastric bypass surgery candidates have
already tried more conventional diet and exercise plans with little success. With few options, doctors
and patients are increasingly turning to gastric bypass surgery as a lifesaver and often as a last resort.

Laparoscopic gastric bypass surgery is a treatment for obesity. Obesity risks add to complications of
gastric bypass. Today, gastric bypass surgery is being marketed and promoted to obese patients as a
panacea for obesity. According to the report, "Gastric bypass is now established as an effective and
safe therapy for morbid obesity and its associated health problems.

Research investigators followed 20 women who underwent gastric bypass for treatment of morbid
obesity to compare the safety and effectiveness of RNY and MGB in the treatment of morbid obesity. It
was found that Laparoscopic gastric bypass is simple, effective and safe.

Patients who have a BMI over 50 tend to lose about 50 percent of their excess weight with a gastric
bypass. With the gastric bypass, patients with a BMI under 50 seem to lose 70 percent of their excess
weight or more.

Undergoing a gastric bypass requires patients to commit to a new lifestyle. The amount of calories and
nutrients absorbed by the body are significantly decreased after gastric bypass surgery.

People who have gastric bypass operations usually lose two-thirds of their excess weight within two
years after the operation. It is no miracle that patients of the gastric bypass lose weight rapidly.

However, weight reduction surgery known as gastric bypass is merely the first step. After a gastric
bypass, it is recommended that you follow a certain diet in order to maintain proper weight balance and
nutrient intake. The gastric bypass diet helps you maintain good nutrition while losing weight. People
who regain weight after gastric bypass surgery usually are consuming too many high-calorie foods and
beverages and do not exercise enough. About 1 in 20 people who have gastric bypasses fail to lose
sufficient weight or regain weight and the operation has to be repeated.

and subsequently meet your doctor to discuss the possibilities of the surgery.
