Gastric Band Surgery For Failure To Lose Weight

No comments

Until recently, bariatric surgery -- also known as weight-loss surgery -- has been an option only for the severely obese, especially those who also have obesity-related conditions such as type 2 diabetes or sleep apnea (both of which increase the risk for heart disease complications). But now that has changed. 
One of the most common bariatric surgeries is adjustable gastric banding, which places a modifiable band around the stomach to curb food intake.  In January 2011, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved gastric banding for those who are less than severely obese.   
How gastric banding works. During gastric banding, an adjustable silicon band is placed around the top part of your stomach. It forms a thumb-sized pouch that can hold only a small amount of food. 
"The band's purpose is to prevent overeating," says Michael Schweitzer, M.D., a surgeon at the Johns Hopkins Center for Bariatric Surgery at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center.  
How? The band is adjusted at a doctor's office to control the rate at which food passes from the pouch to the lower part of the stomach. Slowing the passage of food to the lower part of the stomach makes you feel fuller longer, so you consume fewer calories. 
Gastric banding is attractive for many reasons. It's a minimally invasive outpatient procedure -- the surgery itself takes less than an hour. It is also more easily reversed than other bariatric surgeries and has low complication rates. 
For example, another common bariatric surgery, gastric bypass, requires that part of your stomach be stapled shut and the digestive tract rerouted. It also includes a two-day hospital stay. 
Cons and caveats of gastric banding. There are good reasons not to rush into gastric banding, including: 
  • Recovery from gastric banding includes a month-long diet of pureed foods and about six trips to the doctor's office for band adjustments in the first year. 
  • After gastric banding you must also permanently go on a strict low-fat diet to achieve and maintain a normal weight. Eating too much or too fast can cause you to regurgitate swallowed food from the upper pouch after meals. 
Finally, if you're a candidate for gastric banding surgery, you'll have to prove that you are ready for both the procedure and challenging lifestyle changes. You must undergo psychological counseling and show that you have tried diet and exercise for at least six months.

Lagerstroemia Speciosa Or Banaba As Alternative Medicine To Diabetes

No comments

The leaves of Lagerstroemia speciosa (Lythraceae), a Southeast Asian tree more commonly known as banaba, have been traditionally consumed in various forms by Philippinos for treatment of diabetes and kidney related diseases. In the 1990s, the popularity of this herbal medicine began to attract the attention of scientists worldwide. Since then, researchers have conducted numerous in vitro and in vivo studies that consistently confirmed the antidiabetic activity of banaba. Scientists have identified different components of banaba to be responsible for its activity. Using tumor cells as a cell model, corosolic acid was isolated from the methanol extract of banaba and shown to be an active compound. More recently, a different cell model and the focus on the water soluble fraction of the extract led to the discovery of other compounds. The ellagitannin Lagerstroemin was identified as an effective component of the banaba extract responsible for the activity. In a different approach, using 3T3-L1 adipocytes as a cell model and a glucose uptake assay as the functional screening method, Chen et al. showed that the banaba water extract exhibited an insulin-like glucose transport inducing activity. Coupling HPLC fractionation with a glucose uptake assay, gallotannins were identified in the banaba extract as components responsible for the activity, not corosolic acid. Penta-O-galloyl-glucopyranose (PGG) was identified as the most potent gallotannin. A comparison of published data with results obtained for PGG indicates that PGG has a significantly higher glucose transport stimulatory activity than Lagerstroemin. Chen et al. have also shown that PGG exhibits anti-adipogenic properties in addition to stimulating the glucose uptake in adipocytes. The combination of glucose uptake and anti-adipogenesis activity is not found in the current insulin mimetic drugs and may indicate a great therapeutic potential of PGG.

Lagerstroemia speciosa also called banaba in the Tagalog language of the Philippines, is a tropical plant found in many parts of Southeast Asia including the Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia and southern China. It is a tree that can grow as tall as 20 m. Despite growing in several countries, only in the Philippines are the dried and shredded banaba leaves known to be used as a treatment for diabetes and kidney disease. It is not clear if banaba plants grown in different countries are equally effective in the treatment of diabetes.
