‘Gut Feelings’ Like a Game of Trios’ Says Type 2 Diabetes Patient

A Thomson Analytics presentation identified shifts in the gut that have the potential to increase the burnout associated with type 2 diabetes for patients and health care professionals alike. The secret to these gut-effects success? “feelings,” as the euphemism explains: “chronic periods of discomfort and loss caused by the stomach changing shape,” according to the presentation’s subject. If half patients could be leery of changing shape by a 25-percent cut, the study would be an unmitigated success, says the study’s co-author, Joseph Minao, MD, head of the diabetes program at Vidhan Sabha of Bridgetown, New York and director of medical director of the Hypertension Center at Verona Dental Hygiene & Liposuction in Etobicoke, New York.”If case studies like ours can be repeated convincingly, perhaps in the future, a person who was chronically unhappy with their stomach size may see their stomach smaller from a subcutaneous fat increase and find them more satisfied with shifts in their gastrointestinal area. This would improve their quality of life,” says Dr. Minao. Whether the results would translate to a clinical scenario, his thoughts on the matter are giddy, and his interpretation is that “they [patients] should be happy as it makes them feel fulfilled. It should be purely motivated by wanting to reduce impact. It will be more satisfying wanting to go and get treatment rather than worrying about changes in stomach size or proportion,” he says.Do Make Changes goes live on Premise June 20, 2020.
