The region located in the last part of the intestine is responsible for the secretion of a special hormone, its direct contact with pure food is required to increase this hormone, and this is the main purpose in the procedures.
After the operation is completed, the rate of insulin secretion increases significantly and diabetes ends up as more hormones secreted from the relevant part of the small intestine remove the pressure on the pancreas.
