During the surgery, a part of the final part of the small intestine, called ileum, is cut exchanged it location with the initial part of the small intestine. Normally, the duodenum, which is a large part of intestinal initiation and chemical digestion, is bypassed.

Ileum, which is the final part of the small intestine, is the first part of the small intestine that encounters with the nutrient. In this case, nutrients reach the ileum quickly, and this encountering leads GLP-1, the hormone that plays a role in regulating insulin secretion, to be secreted. Insulin resistance in the liver and surrounding tissues decreases.

Food restriction due to the removal of a part of the stomach leads weight loss. Ghrelin (secreted from the stomach), a hormone that increases appetite, is secreted less as a result of smaller size of the stomach , and the appetite decreases.

As a result, the complications related to diabetes are under control.
