Ileal Interposition for Type 2 Diabetes

This is a novel procedure where a segment of the distal ileum (small intestine) is interposed between the upper part of the jejunum or joined directly to the duodenum.

 

The insulin resistance hormones, Ghrelin (stomach), GIP (duodenum) and glucagon (pancreas), are excreted from the initial parts of the digestive system and the insulin sensitivity hormone, called GLP-1, is released from the L cells in the last part of the intestine.
