You will need Bariatric Surgery to develop dumping syndromes. It involves partial or complete removal of the stomach to cause weight reduction. Dumping syndrome can also develop in people with an esophageal surgery experience.

Such people usually have an obese inclination. Its leading symptoms include abdominal cramps and diarrhea that come up within half an hour post-meal. However, in the initial phase, symptoms may develop between one and three hours after having lunch and dinner.


Early symptoms of dumping syndrome include nausea, vomiting, abdominal cramping, and diarrhea. Usually, these generate after 10 to 30 minutes after a full-belly meal.

Other primitive signs include:

  • Bloating or feeling completion after consuming a little amount of food.
  • Face flushing.
  • Profuse perspiration.
  • Dizziness.
  • The heartbeat becomes faster.

Advanced dumping syndrome symptoms occur usually after one to three hours; these appear if an obese patient consumes a sugar-rich diet.

Signs leading to a Bariatric Surgery retain for long. This occurs when our body releases a high amount of insulin to absorb the sugar contents in our diet. You become prone to a low-level blood sugar afterward.

These signs include:

  • Body shaking.
  • Fatigue.
  • Confusion.
  • Obtrusive hunger.
  • Dizziness followed by lightheadedness.
  • Flushing or high perspiration.
  • Weakness.
  • Rapid pulse rate.

Time to see your doctor

You should consult your doctor if got any of those symptoms:

  • If your symptoms remain after a dietary change.
  • Unexpected weight loss.
  • If the signs/symptoms resemble dumping syndrome.


There are two types of reasons. In the first-level consulting, doctors target the early-stage disease. They treat other signs during the subsequent processes.

  • You gain a primitive dumping syndrome when sudden food entry into the intestine. It removes a huge amount of fluid from the bloodstream to the intestine. Such excess fluid causes bloating and diarrhea.
  • Intestine release substances that enhance pulse rate; it also decreases blood pressure. These occurrences lead to faster heartbeat and dizziness.
  • Late signs begin when our blood has an extra amount of starch. It increases blood sugar levels in our bodies. To combat this, our pancreas releases an excess amount of insulin. It removes overloaded sugar content from the blood. Such an extra rise in insulin sometimes drops the blood sugar too.


Doctors conduct Bariatric Surgery under different principles. However, the operation specifics depend on the patient’s overall medical condition. Your preference is seriously considered while fixing the treatment policy.   

Three types of surgical procedures exist. Surgeons prefer to have the laparoscopic processes for its two-fold benefits. These include:

  • Small incisions that take much less time to heal.
  • Your recovery time is low too.

Each of the types has its relative merits and drawbacks.

Roux-en-Y gastric bypass

This non-reversible procedure is the commonest Bariatric Surgery type. Your surgeon aims to decrease the patient’s food consumption in a single sitting. The process effectively reduces the number of consumable nutrients.

H/she cuts across the stomach-top, and seals it off from the rest of the food canal. The resultant walnut-shaped pouch consumes too little food.

Then, your surgeon cuts the intestine; then h/she stitches part of it onto the developed pouch directly. Food bypasses the main organ and is transferred into the small stomach pouch, finally into the small intestine. You consume that very amount of food needed to continue the physiological activities.

Sleeve gastrectomy

In this process, most of the stomach is removed leaving a long and tubing pouch. Surgeons aim to make you consume lesser food.

This procedure has two-fold benefits. First, the patient undergoes remarkable weight loss; no intestine rerouting follows it. Secondly, the recovery period is much shorter than other procedures.

Biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch

It’s a two-part surgical process.

  • The first one involves the removal of the stomach.
  • During the other part, your surgeon connects the intestine ends to the duodenum.

My verdict

Bariatric Surgery processes could produce extremely effective output in limiting your food consumption. Avoiding unnecessary dietary absorption has effectively helped obese people to avoid malnutrition and vitamin deficiencies.
