Vitamin D deficiency is one of the most common deficiencies seen in both pre- and post-surgery patients of all bariatric procedure types.
ASMBS guidelines call for at least 3,000 IU vitamin D per day for patients of most bariatric procedure types.
Vitamin D promotes calcium and phosphorus absorption and is needed for bone growth and bone remodeling.
