Research suggests that patients who have undergone Biliopancreatic Diversion (BP-D) or Biliopancreatic Diversion/Duodenal Switch (BPD-DS) procedures face higher risks for deficiency of fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K.
ASMBS guidelines for patients of Gastric Bypass (RYGB/RNY), Sleeve Gastrectomy (VSG/SG), and Duodenal Switch (DS) call for a high-potency multivitamin. Nutrient forms should be targeted to address the absorption challenges faced by bariatric patients.
Bariatric Advantage High ADEK Multi is specifically designed to help meet the nutritional needs of patients who have undergone malabsorptive procedures by delivering high levels of vitamins A, D, E, and K in bioavailable nutrient forms.
- Each two-capsule serving delivers:
- Vitamin A 15,000 IU
- Vitamin D 5,000 IU
- Vitamin E 100 IU
- Vitamin K 400 mcg
- Provides a full complex of all B vitamins.
