As with all things related to our weight loss surgery, your specific vitamin supplementation prescription should be made by your bariatric surgeon, bariatric nutritionist and/or general care physician. Annual blood tests will determine deficiencies which can be treated with supplementation. So please, be informed about your vitamin and mineral intake and visit candidly with your health care team to ensure your best health. You deserve to be your nutritional best. In this digest we have included articles and links to help you be better informed about nutritional supplements and the impact they have on our wellness.
