Injecting microscopic globule into the stomach can diminish fatigue and initiate weight loss, experts have disclose .The least interfering treatment For gastric bypass patients, known as bariatric arterial embolization, was developed by a team of Johns Hopkins University scientists in 1995.The beads help bottom levels of ghrelin to cure it– one of the main hormones involved in controlling hunger – in the stomach.An early clinical trial test and experts  found that the treatment is safe and effective in encouraging weight loss in gravely obese people.Dr Clifford Weiss, director of intervention radiology research and study at Johns Hopkins, said: ‘Obesity is a highly prevalent, detrimental and costly disease in the US and abroad.‘The interventions currently available to treat this condition are behavioural moderation, diet and exercise, medications and invasive surgery.

‘We’re impassioned about the possibility of adding bariatric arterial embolization for gastric bypass patients another instrument for health care supplier to offer patients in the attempt to curb this epidemic.’They then undertake bariatric arterial the artificial or natural formation or development of an embolus.– which necessitate the injection of microscopic beads through a small catheter injected in a small nick in the skin of the groin or wrist.

The beads are targeted to a portion of the stomach, called the fundus – which produces the majority of the body’s ghrelin – known as the ‘hunger hormone’.The scientists hypothesized that the beads would decrease blood flow and limit the secretion of ghrelin, which would, in turn, minimize hunger and initiate weight loss.All of the patients demonstrated weight loss and ‘dramatic hunger reduction levels’ following the procedure.They had an average excess weight loss – the percentage of pounds lost above the patient’s ideal body weight – of 5.9 per cent at one month, 9.5 per cent at three months and 13.3 per cent at six months.

Furthermore, the participants reported an average 81 per cent, 59 per cent and 26 per cent decrease in hunger/appetite score at two weeks, one months and three months, respectively.Their perceived sensation of hunger throughout the day was assessed through appetite and satiety questionnaires, which were completed for six days before the procedure and for six consecutive days before each follow-up visit.Scientists also found that the patients had an average 17.5 per cent decrease in ghrelin levels at three months.Dr Weiss said: ‘These early results demonstrate that bariatric arterial embolization for gastric bypass patients is safe and appears to be effective in helping patients lose a significant amount of weight in a short and intermediate term.‘Compared to a surgical gastric bypass procedure, bariatric arterial embolization is significantly less invasive and has a much shorter recovery time.’
