Is EndoBarrier Therapy Right for You?

EndoBarrier Therapy for type 2 diabetes and weight loss does not rely on medication or involve invasive surgery to dramatically decrease your blood sugar and body weight. EndoBarrier Therapy uses cutting-edge technology and world-class innovation to dramatically change the way your body responds to food.

The EndoBarrier liner is a thin flexible tube that is placed inside your intestine (below your stomach) creating a physical barrier between the intestinal wall and the food you eat. The liner is designed to move with your body after placement. There are no incisions needed in the placement or removal of the EndoBarrier liner. Once the liner is placed, most patients report that they begin to experience results within two weeks.

These results may include:

      • Reduced blood sugar (also called ‘blood glucose’) levels
      • Feelings of fullness (satiety)
      • Weight loss

EndoBarrier Liner Placement and RemovalPlacing the EndoBarrier liner is a simple procedure that does not require any incisions. Your doctor will access your upper intestine via your mouth to place the liner. Once in place, the liner will conform with the shape and movement of your intestine and begin to work immediately. The EndoBarrier liner must be removed at the end of your treatment period, which may not exceed twelve months. Liner removal is done via another brief, incision-less procedure, similar to the one you experienced during placement. There will be no scars after your procedure; and you will be able to go back to your normal routine after a brief recovery.

What is Type 2 Diabetes and Why Do I Have It?

Diabetes means your blood glucose (blood sugar) levels are too high. With type 2 diabetes, your body does not make enough insulin or use insulin well. Insulin is a hormone that helps glucose (sugar) get into your cells to provide energy. Without proper levels of insulin, too much glucose stays in your blood.
