LOS ANGELES, Aug. 1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- It's no secret that obesity is a growing problem in the U.S., and that the disease can increase the risk of severe health issues like arthritis, cancer, and heart disease. That's why bariatric treatments like sleeve gastrectomy provided by the acclaimed beauty and wellness team at Beverly Hills Physicians have been so thoroughly embraced by patients and medical professionals alike. Sleeve gastrectomy is certainly a significant surgery, yet it can go a long way towards enhancing the quality and length of one's life. This reality was illustrated yet again in a recent study that found substantially improved long-term diabetes outcomes for patients who undergo treatment.
Endocrine Today recently reported on research that was presented at the joint meeting of the International Congress of Endocrinology and the Endocrine Society. It was found that sleeve gastrectomy helps adults with type 2 diabetes to achieve better blood glucose control than standard care. At the completion of the study, 76% of patients with surgery were able to reduce their diabetes medications, or even eliminate them completely.
Sheetal Malhotra, M.D., M.S. of the James J Peters V.A. Medical Center in New York said that "as compared to the medical management alone in veterans with diabetes, sleeve gastrectomy was effective in improving BMI, decreasing (glycated hemoglobin) and improving HDL cholesterol."
What is Sleeve Gastrectomy?
Sleeve gastrectomy is a weight loss procedure that involves the removal of roughly 85% of the stomach, with the remainder sewn into a long, sleeve-like shape. What makes the surgery particularly effective, though, is that it doesn't only limit the number of calories a person can eat. It also decreases the feelings of hunger that lead to harmful overeating to begin with. For BHP patients, this means they're able to enjoy sustainable, rapid weight loss while still feeling comfortable, energized, and engaged in daily life.
As the premier facility throughout the Southwest for those seeking artful cosmetic treatment as well as medical-based care, it should come as no surprise that Beverly Hills Physicians is trusted by those seeking bariatric weight loss treatments. Their team includes highly skilled and experienced specialists – including many board certified surgeons – who are fully committed to providing the most effective possible patient care.
An On-Going Health Relationship
Considering the potentially life-changing results for those suffering from serious issues like diabetes, the dedication of the BHP team goes a long way towards ensuring every patient experiences the best outcome possible. Sleeve gastrectomy usually involves an ongoing relationship with weight loss specialists, even after the recovery period, in order to monitor the patient's progress and address any unforeseen complications or side effects. During this period, patients are often particularly appreciative of the comprehensive approach and patient-centric focus of the BHP team.
