Ghrelin and the Gastric Sleeve
Sep 17, 2021
- It decreases the capacity of the stomach and as a result you become full faster
- The top portion of the stomach called the fundus is removed. This is the part of the stomach that secretes the “hunger hormone” Ghrelin
When Ghrelin is secreted it acts to increase your “hunger cravings” which leads to increased food intake and subsequent weight gain. Increasing levels of ghrelin leads to more food cravings.
Studies have shown Ghrelin productions drops off after the sleeve gastrectomy as the fundus which is the Ghrelin secreting part of your stomach has been removed. This plays a key role in your weight loss after your gastric sleeve. Subjectively, many patient’s tell us after their gastric sleeve their hunger cravings and emotional triggers to eat are greatly reduced.
