Dumping syndrome, or ?rapid gastric emptying?, is extremely common following bariatric surgery procedures that bypass the majority of your stomach.
As many as 70-90% of gastric bypass patients experience dumping syndrome, but less than 1-10% of these people who do have serious symptoms. Gastric dumping syndrome does not usually require medical treatment to be cured.
The treatment includes Change of diet. Octreotide, Acarbose are few drugs. A person may need surgery if dumping syndrome is caused by previous gastric surgery or if the condition is not responsive to other treatments.
On research it is evident that Dumping syndrome occurs when food, especially sugar, moves too fast from the stomach to the duodenum?the first part of the small intestine?in the upper gastrointestinal (GI) tract.
