FAQ’S ABOUT BARIATRIC SURGERY
How Gastric Sleeve Surgery Works?
Weight loss is caused by two mechanisms – First is restriction because of a smaller stomach size and secondly removing the part of the stomach that produces the “hunger hormone” (ghrelin) contributes to the weight loss by reducing the appetite.
Sleeve gastrectomy is a physiological operation that alters several hormone levels in the body resulting in resetting of the set point of food storage to a lower level. These hormonal changes include reduced Ghrelin, increased GLP 1, Peptide YY and Amylin, resulting in reduced appetite and increased energy expenditure.
