Weight loss surgeries and diabetes

According to a great number of published studies, diabetes type 2 can be cured by gastric bypass surgery in 80-100% of severely obese patients. Diabetes mellitus type 2 is reversed in up to 90% of patients; usually it leads to a normal blood sugar without medication, sometimes within days of surgery.

If the excessive fat mass around the abdomen is contributing factor to diabetes, than the loss of fat mass around the abdomen should be somehow connected with the diabetes cure but is not.

It is clear that the cure of diabetes after obesity surgery is not due to weight loss because it usually occurs within days of surgery, which is before any weight loss occurs or before significant weight loss occurs.

This leads to the conclusion that excessive fat mass around abdomen and diabetes doesn’t cause each other, but both conditions are caused by some other factors.

The obesity surgery leaves the wound in the abdominal wall and the wound in the stomach. The abdominal wall wound heals in a mater of days, but the stomach wound takes much longer and in some cases, it fails to heal.

Even when the stomach wound is healed, there are still staples or band, depending of what kind of surgery is performed. Because of the wounds, the patient is forced to maintain optimal size of the abdominal cavity; otherwise the wound will be compressed. When the stomach wound is compressed the patient experiences increased strain or pain in the stomach.

The optimal size of the abdominal cavity is possible to achieve only by maintaining correct body posture. (In most cases, the patient doesn’t achieve ideal correct body posture, but it is forced to maintain much better body posture than before obesity surgery. Improvement of the body posture causes improvement of the size of the abdominal cavity).

Correct body posture creating the optimal size of the abdominal, chest and pelvic cavity, and on the other side, the incorrect body posture decreases the size of the abdominal, pelvic and chest cavity. (The size of the abdominal, pelvic and the chest cavity are in a causal relation. A decrease in the size in one of the cavity causes decreases in the size of the other two cavities.)

After the stomach wound is healed, there is still left a strange device like staples or lap band that force the patient to maintain the optimal size of the abdominal cavity.

When the abdominal muscles don’t support the upper body weight, the body shrinks in the waistline (a distance between the rib cage and pelvis decreases) and at the same time the living and working space of internal organs is reduced.

When the abdominal cavity size is decreased, the internals organs are compressed.

For some period of time after obesity surgery, the wound in the stomach constantly force the maintaining of the natural size of cavity, otherwise the patient will experience pain in the stomach. After some period of time when the wound is healed, the staples, lap band etc, that are left in the stomach, force in a similar way to maintain the optimal size of abdominal cavity as it is forced by the wound in the stomach.

Optimal-natural size of the abdominal cavity is possible to achieve and maintained only when the abdominal muscles are supporting the upper body weight. When the abdominal muscles don’t support the upper body weight against the pull of the Earth’s gravity the upper body weight is lying on the abdomen. Literally, the abdomen is squeezed by the upper body weight.
It can be noticed that by slouched- hunched body posture in sitting and as well standing position, the distance between the rib cage and the pelvic bone is reduced. On one side, the consequences of obesity surgery is that it forces a patient to maintain natural size of the abdominal cavity and on the other side it causes that the abdominal muscles are physically active even when a patient is sitting on the chair with soft seat and as well as when sitting on the couch, sofa and arm chair. It shows that obesity surgeries force improvement of the body posture in sitting and standing position and also forces improvement of the body posture for the time of performing locomotion. (The abdominal muscles are supporting the upper body weight in a sitting upright position and in a standing position and as well as for the times of performing locomotion.)

The wound-staples in the stomach force a patient to maintain the optimal size of the abdominal cavity. – The optimal size of the abdominal cavity is possible only to maintain, by maintaining correct body posture. – Correct body posture is possible to maintain only when the abdominal muscles are engaged in the task of supporting the upper body weight.

In the end, it shows that Weight Loss Surgery forces the abdominal and lower back muscles to be engaged in the task of supporting the weight of the upper part of the body against the pull of gravity and on the other side, it forces the maintenance of the natural size of the abdominal cavity.

The consequences of Weight Loss Surgeries is that in a sitting and standing position and for the time of performing locomotion like walking etc, the abdominal muscles are far more physically active than before surgery, and at the same time it force maintenance of natural size of the abdominal cavity or at least more optimal size of abdominal cavity than what was before the surgery.

The natural size of the abdominal, chest and pelvic cavity means the optimal working and living space for the internal organs.

One consequence of an improved body posture is that it enables optimal size of the abdominal cavity- optimal working and living space for internal organs.

Other consequences of improved body posture are that the abdominal muscles are far more physically active than before the obesity surgery (increased physical activity of the abdominal muscles without increasing the breathing and heart rate).

Improvement of the body posture goes along with increased physical activity of the abdominal muscles without increasing the breathing and heart rate.

It is very likely that improvement or cure of Diabetes mellitus type 2 can be attributed to improved body posture. Furthermore, it shows that cure for diabetes type 2 may be far simpler than anyone could have imagined.

From time to time, using conscious effort to maintain correct or better body posture in sitting position and for the time of performing everyday locomotion, combined with the involvement in postural and motor skill exercises should prevent and cure diabetes type 2.

Weight Loss Surgeries and Weight Loss

The weight loss after obesity surgery can be explained by analysing the change in the body posture and change in the gait patterns that is induced by obesity surgery.

The upper body weight is providing mechanical stimulation on the abdomen only in the case when it isn’t supported by the abdominal muscles. When the abdominal muscles are supporting the upper body weight, the upper body weight doesn’t lie on the waistline and abdomen and that has the consequence that it doesn’t produce mechanical stimulations on the abdomen. The absence of mechanical stimulations is the factor that causes weight loss (regression of the bone, muscle and fat mass).
It means that the improvement of body posture in sitting, standing and for the times of performing locomotion is responsible for weight loss of the excessive fat mass. The reduced physical activity is responsible for weight loss and also causes weight loss of the muscle, bone and fat mass (destructive regression of the fat, muscle and bone mass).

Another factor that is responsible for the weight loss after weight loss surgery is the reduced strength of the impact force. The abdominal wall wound and the stomach wound and later the staples or other surgical device that is left in the stomach like lap band etc, forces patients to take more care of how he transfers his body weight from one leg to the other. Before obesity surgery, the patient could walk while maintaining unbalanced gait pattern. After obesity surgery, the patient walks in such a way that he transfers the body weight from one leg to the other on a more balanced way then before weight loss surgery.

The wound in the stomach forces the patient to perform more efficient locomotion than what was the case before obesity surgery and after the wound heals the staples, lap band etc that is left in the stomach, force the patient to perform more efficient locomotion than what was the case before obesity surgery.

The improvement of the gait pattern causes improved efficiency of walking (efficiency of locomotion). – The improved efficiency of locomotion causes reduced strength of the impact forces. – The reduced strength of impact forces causes reduced strength of the mechanical stimulations. – Reduced strength of mechanical stimulations below the level necessary for maintenance of the existing body mass will result in the loss of the muscle, bones and fat mass.

Weight Loss Surgeries and Excessive Skin

The fact which is misleading nearly everyone is the appearances of excessive skin by patients who lose plenty of weight.

Present explanation for the appearance of excessive skin says that patient has lost weight so quickly, due to restrictions of calories intake and because of that; the skin isn’t able to shrink so quickly. Nearly for everyone, this is one more proof that obesity surgery efficiently causes weight loss, and further more, ensures the theory of weight loss based on a state of negative energy balance.

But if we take a closer look, we can see that what health experts and health correspondents call “excessive skin” is not only skin alone, there is plenty of human flesh, mostly fat mass, together with the skin.
It shows that “excessive skin” is an inappropriate term to describe this condition. The appropriate term for this condition should be saggy fat/flesh tissues.

The use of the word “excessive skin” to describe this condition is misleading in such a way that leads to the conclusion that forced restrictions of calories intake is effective way to loose the weight and is consuming so little time that skin doesn’t have enough time to shrink.

Using word that really describes this condition in this case is “saggy flesh tissues”, it shows that some part of the body doesn’t lose weight, it doesn’t mater how long and how harsh the restriction of food intake is. (Further reduction of the food intake will cause death before the patient loses the fat mass in the saggy fat tissues.)

The example of saggy flesh tissues/excessive skin shows that the layer beneath the skin of the human body did not lose weight after obesity surgery.

The fact is that the outermost layer of the body, together with the skin, did not lose proportional amount of weight compared to the whole body.

The reason for the appearance of the saggy flesh tissues/excessive skin is that the weight loss surgery forces improvement of the body posture and efficiency of locomotion but still doesn’t completely restrict the jiggling of the fat tissues.
The wound in the abdominal wall and in the stomach forces the improvement of patient’s gait patterns and improvement of body posture that has the consequence of reduced strength of the impact force. Reduced strength of the impact forces has the consequence of reduced strength of the mechanical stimulation on the bone, muscle and fat tissues below the maintenance level and that cause’s weight loss of the muscle, bone and fat mass.

In most cases, the patient improves body posture and improves the way of walking – gait pattern (improve the efficiency of supporting and carrying the body weight), but the excessive fat and muscle tissues beneath the skin continue, to some extent, to jiggle by nearly every movement of the body.

The jiggling of the fat tissues occur in most cases less than before the obesity surgery, but still enough to provide mechanical stimulation necessary for the maintenance of the existing fat mass that is located beneath the skin.

The impact forces and the weight of the body provide mechanical stimulation to the muscle, bone and fat tissues.

The jiggling of the fat tissues provides mechanical stimulation only to the fat tissues that are located beneath the skin.

This means that the jiggling of the fat tissues doesn’t provide mechanical stimulation to the bones and muscles tissues and as well as it doesn’t provide mechanical stimulation to the fat tissues that are located more inside the body.

The jiggling of the saggy fat tissues obstructs the loss of the fat mass in the tissues beneath the skin, and at the same time obstructs shrinkage of the skin.

In some cases, the jiggling of fat tissues is strong enough to produce excessive mechanical stimulation on them causing the building of new fat mass in saggy fat tissues.
The excessive mechanical stimulations produced by the jiggling of the fat tissues, cause weight gain of the fat mass only.

The cause for the appearance and existence of saggy flesh tissues and the cause for appearance and existence of excessive fat mass anywhere in the body, is the same.

Absence of mechanical stimulation on fat and saggy tissues will cause in a short time regression of the fat mass in the saggy fat tissues and shrinkage of the skin.

The excessive mechanical stimulations produced by the weight of the body and excessive mechanical stimulation produced by the impact force causing weight gain of the muscle, bone and fat mass.

The excessive mechanical stimulation produced by the jiggling of the fat tissues causes the weight gain of the fat mass only.

It shows that the weight loss after obesity surgery isn’t due to the restriction of calories intake, but is due to the forced changes of body posture in the sitting and standing position and is also due to the forced changes in the gait pattern.

It all shows that surgical intervention to treat obesity is a medical practice based on a misunderstanding.

Instead of altering a digestive system, it will be far more effective to be involved in postural and motor skill exercises.

It all shows that Weight loss Surgeries changes the biomechanics of sitting and changes the biomechanics of walking in such a way that increases the efficiency of supporting the body weight and the increase in efficiency of carrying our own body weight. Improvement of efficiency of supporting body weight against the pull of the Earth’s gravity in sitting and standing position and improvement of efficiency of carrying weight of the body leads to the regression of the fat mass.

Improvement of the body posture in sitting and standing position and as well as for the time of performing locomotion (walking) combined with the involvement in postural and motor skill exercise is a solution for the loss of excessive body weight and it is also an effective and efficient way to prevent and cure saggy flesh tissues and excessive skin.

Please note! My theory about the underlining mechanism that causes remission of diabetes mellitus is based on the conclusion that I made on a pure analysis of the weight loss induced by weight loss surgery. I didn’t have chance to convince myself on the examples in real life. I believe and I hope that my theory about diabetes will prove to be correct.

In the case of the weight loss, weight gain and the body fat distribution I am convinced that my theory is correct because my confidence is not only based on pure analysis, but as well on many years of research and on a few experiments in real life.
