Question: What is Dumping Syndrome?

Dumping syndrome is a problem that occurs in some patients after having gastric bypass surgery.

It is the result of food passing too quickly into the small intestine. It is typically induced when the patient eats certain foods, such as sweets or certain carbohydrate sources (such as simple carbohydrates like sugar and some starches). It can also occur as a result of eating too much at one time.
