Long-term weight loss through Standard of Care procedures (Roux en Y Bypass, Sleeve Gastrectomy, and Single Anastomosis Duodenoileostomy with Sleeve gastrectomy procedure (SADI-S)) is largely achieved by altering gut hormone levels that are responsible for hunger and satiety, thereby leading to a new hormonal weight set point.
