Abstract

Aims: To investigate the physiological mechanisms leading to rapid improvement in diabetes after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) and specifically the contribution of the concurrent peri-operative dietary restrictions, which may also alter glucose metabolism. Materials and methods: In order to assess the differential contributions of diet and surgery to the mechanisms leading to the rapid improvement in diabetes after RYGB we enrolled 10 patients with type 2 diabetes scheduled to undergo RYGB. All patients underwent a 10-day inpatient supervised dietary intervention equivalent to the peri-operative diet (diet-only period), followed by, after a re-equilibration (washout) period, an identical period of pair-matched diet in conjunction with RYGB (diet and RYGB period). We conducted extensive metabolic assessments during a 6-hour mixed-meal challenge test, with stable isotope glucose tracer infusion performed before and after each intervention. Results: Similar improvements in glucose levels, β-cell function, insulin sensitivity and post-meal hepatic insulin resistance were observed with both interventions. Both interventions led to significant reductions in fasting and postprandial acyl ghrelin. The diet-only intervention induced greater improvements in basal hepatic glucose output and post-meal gastric inhibitory polypeptide (GIP) secretion. The diet and RYGB intervention induced significantly greater increases in post-meal glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1), peptide YY (PYY) and glucagon levels. Conclusions: Strict peri-operative dietary restriction is a main contributor to the rapid improvement in glucose metabolism after RYGB. The RYGB-induced changes in the incretin hormones GLP-1 and PYY probably play a major role in long-term compliance with such major dietary restrictions through central and peripheral mechanisms.
