The mini-gastric bypass procedure is restrictive and malabsorptive. It means that the procedure reduces the size of your stomach, restricting the amount you can eat. The procedure also reduces the absorption of food by bypassing up to 6-7 feet of the intestines. This has excellent results for individuals who have diabetes with obesity. It reverses diabetes in 60-80% of patients.
