Diabetes Cure with Hole Surgery! - Healthcare Press Releases - Gulf Press Centre

The global prevalence of type 2 diabetes is rising dramatically, driven by an “obesogenic” environment that favours increasing sedentary behaviour and easier access to attractive calorie-dense foods.

Gulf Press Centre: (Press Release) - June, 2012 -:

The most recent global predictions by the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) suggest that there are 285 million people with diabetes currently worldwide. This is set to escalate to 438 million by 2030 (approximately 8% of the population), with a further half billion at high risk (approximately another 9% of the population). Diabetes is looming as one of the greatest public health threats of the 21st century. India and UAE top the diabetes prevalence lists. This warrants urgent attention.

To survive and function normally, every cell in our body needs energy. Insulin is the hormone that enables our body to utilize glucose for energy production. Type 2 diabetes is the result of either decreased insulin production or an inadequate ability of the body to utilize the insulin produced as a result of insulin resistance.

Cardinal therapy for type 2 diabetes is a strict diet and exercise regimen with medication. In spite of adherence however, many fail to achieve control of their diabetes. Uncontrolled diabetes is a leading cause of vascular (blood vessel) damage resulting in hypertension and stoke. It also affects the eyes, kidneys and nerves. Premature mortality and morbidity in diabetes result from such complications.

Diabetic surgery is an appropriate treatment for people with type 2 diabetes not achieving recommended treatment targets with medical therapies, especially when there are other major co-morbidities. The surgical procedures differ for obese and non-obese diabetic patients. Type 1 (insulin dependent) diabetes patients do not benefit however from surgery.

There is increasing evidence that the health of people with type 2 diabetes, including the metabolic control of diabetes and its associated risk factors, can benefit substantially from diabetic surgery – a surgical procedure to cure diabetes through a key hole surgery.

Diabetic surgery substantially improves hypertension, dyslipidaemia (altered fat levels in the body) and sleep apnoea (breathing trouble during sleep – commonly snoring) and several reports have documented an improvement of overall survival and specific reduction in diabetes-related mortality.

Dr R Padmakumar, specialist surgeon, International Modern Hospital, Dubai, and consultant surgeon, Sunrise Hospital, Cochin, India; who is the first and only surgeon in Dubai currently to be accorded the right to perform surgeries to cure diabetes, emphasises that the cure of diabetes comes with additional benefits.

There is a 92% reduction in deaths from diabetes-related causes. Diabetic surgery reduces risk of serious diabetes associated complications like blindness, limb amputation, kidney disease, cardiovascular conditions like heart attack, congestive heart failure, high blood pressure and stroke.

90 % of patients who undergo diabetic surgery are completely cured and the remaining benefit from significantly reduced medication.

After a diabetic surgery, patients usually live better with more energy and are healthier to live longer.
