Importance of Vitamins after Bariatric Surgery

Even if you have chosen a bariatric procedure that does not involve malabsorption; adequate vitamin supplementation will be needed due to the reduction in food intake.

Always work closely with your Registered Dietitian for a personalized supplement regimen based on your individual bloodwork. Here are some basic pointers:
