What is a biliopancreatic diversion (BPD)? BPD is a weight loss procedure that removes part of the stomach and small intestine (the first part of the small bowel), which causes the body to use other parts of the digestive system for energy. It also reduces the amount of food the body absorbs from the diet.
Because of this, it is important to find foods that your body can use that are healthy and high in fiber. This means more vegetables, beans and whole grains. It may be a good idea to switch to a low-fat diet because it helps control your diabetes.
BPD patients need to follow a strict diet and exercise plan before and after surgery. The diet plan should be formulated by a professional dietitian and should include counseling and support from a multidisciplinary team.
Your surgeon will work with you to create a customized diet plan based on your goals, food preferences, weight history and current health.
Once you have an operation, it may take a few months to recover from your surgery. It may take three to five days after surgery for you to feel full after eating. You will be eating smaller meals for the first two to three months.
You will be required to take a certain amount of calories to make up for the calories you lost. This means you should eat fewer calories than you use each day.
The amount of food you need to eat is called your caloric intake. The amount of calories you use each day is called your basal metabolic rate (BMR). Your BMR is the calories you need to function and maintain your daily activities.
These numbers are determined at your last weight before surgery. Your health care team will be able to help you set a realistic goal for your daily caloric intake after surgery.
The amount of calories you need to eat is called your caloric intake. Your caloric intake depends on the amount of weight you want to lose and the amount of weight you have lost.
You may need to adjust your eating habits after surgery, but that's part of the process of learning to live with diabetes. If you continue to eat more than you need, your blood glucose levels will rise, which can cause serious health problems.
