Gastric sleeve is made together with gastric bypass by connecting stomach exit with the intestine after passing a part of it. All this is done without separating the stomach exit and so, There will be two ways for passage of food:
*30% of food passes in its normal pass way and so vitamins and minerals are normally absorbed.
*70% of food passes in gastric bypass pass way and so a lot of food and sugars are not absorbed which results in weight loss and treatment of diabetes.
