Obesity is a leading cause of chronic diseases and early death. Moreover, it has become a common medical issue, the majority are suffering. What are the interventions? Many people don’t accept that they are obese and while those accept, try nothing to lose weight. Nobody likes to try remedies every day as we are all so lazy. So, what is the shortcut? It is SADI-S. This blog is a detailed description of the SADI-S bariatric procedure.
It is a minor invasive, risk-free bariatric procedure intended for weight loss benefits. Which part of your body is targeted? It is your digestive system in the abdomen. It is altering the digestive system’s normal mechanism of action. The surgeon uses the duodenal switch to create a gastric sleeve, and the malabsorptive component redirects the section of the small intestine, resulting in 2 distinct paths and 1 shared track. Food can travel from the stomach to the shared channel via the digestive loop, which is the smaller of the 2 paths. The biliopancreatic loop, which is longer, transports bile from the liver to the shared channel. This diversion minimizes the calorie count a patient’s body receives by limiting the time food combines with digestive juices, leading to boosted weight loss.
SADI-S’s main advantage is that technique only requires 1 intestinal anastomosis instead of 2, leading to a faster surgery with a lower risk of intestinal leakage. SADI-S may be conducted as 2 different surgeries for the most severely obese patients, with the restrictive gastric sleeve built initially, letting the patients lose weight and safely continue with the second phase, which involves small intestine redirection.
Before the Surgery
Before every surgery, the surgeon hands over some instructions. In this case, at least 2 weeks prior to the surgery, you will be asked to follow a customized diet that intends to reduce abdominal fat and shrink the liver, while letting the surgeon easily locate abdominal contents using the laparoscope. Losing weight during this time is linked to less risky surgery and post-surgical recovery. The recommended diet will be a low-glycemic index, protein-rich, and a low-fat diet. Easy-to-digest foods with fewer solids are recommended.
After the Surgery
After the 1st surgery, you will be advised of a liquid-based diet plan. You can only consume clear liquids for 7 days. Liquids for the second week include fruit drinks and non-fat milk. By the 3rd week and 4th week, you will be allowed to consume pureed foods. Diet will improve by the 5th and 6th weeks followed by the surgery. Now, you can intake a maximum type of food but in low amounts. Moreover, your diet will still restrict high-fat and junk foods if you want to keep weight loss in the future.
If your BMI is abnormally increased, then visit your doctor to check your eligibility for SADI-S. If it is your ultimate requirement, then carefully follow the pre-and post-surgery instructions. For a successful surgery, it is best to stick to the pre-surgery diet plan. The more visible the organs, the better the procedure will be performed. If you have any questions in mind, comment.
