Endobarrier used for Type 2 diabetes weight loss

Surgeons in the UK have implanted EndoBarrier, a new device designed to help people with Type 2 diabetes lose weight and eliminate the need for medication, in 15 individuals, according to a recent article from the Press Association.

EndoBarrier is essentially a small plastic sleeve that is placed in the small intestine for as long as a year. It is placed in the intestines via the mouth. The way it works is that the sleeve acts as a barrier between the food and the body, giving the body less time to absorb it. In turn, this leads to lower blood sugar levels.

In a year-long study, patients with the EndoBarrier lost more than 20% of their total body weight. — as reported in Diabetes Newshound
