The BariatricPal Store Vitamin Guide
Nutrient deficiencies are common after weight loss surgery, but you can protect yourself. The BariatricPal Store Vitamin Guide can help by telling you which vitamins you are most likely to need after gastric bypass, gastric sleeve, and adjustable gastric band, and duodenal switch surgeries. You can also find out your best bets even if you did not get weight loss surgery.
The Right Vitamins and Minerals
Weight loss diets and each type of bariatric surgery exposes you to risks for different vitamin and mineral deficiencies. Our Vitamin Guide lets you know which ones are your highest risk based on whether you got weight loss surgery or you are losing weight without surgery. It is a good place to start after talking to your doctor!
The Right Form
Some people prefer to swallow pills, while others prefer to use great-tasting chewables. Sometimes, you might have trouble swallowing your vitamins, and patches may be the best way to go. The Vitamin Guide links to different options for each of the recommended vitamins and minerals so you can choose the one that is best for you.
Staying nourished is easier when you have the information and products you need at your fingertips. That is just what you get on our Vitamin Guide page. Just remember to ask your doctor before taking any nutritional supplements, and get your levels checked regularly to make sure you are on track.
