Your surgeon is nearly certain to recommend that you take bariatric vitamins for life after your surgery, so it’s best to explore all of your options. In general, you might look for the choices that are easiest to take and fulfill all of the recommendations for extra vitamins and minerals. Bariatric Vitamin Patches by PatchAid might end up being your best bet. Just be sure to check with your doctor or surgeon before taking any dietary or nutritional supplements.
Reasons to Use a Patch After Bariatric Surgery
Why might you choose a patch after bariatric surgery instead of using oral supplements such as capsules or chewable vitamins? Here are some possible reasons.
- It can be hard or painful to swallow capsules when you’re recovering from surgery. You don’t have to swallow patches.
- Some bariatric surgery procedures cause nutrient malabsorption in the digestive system.
- Some nutrients compete for absorption in the stomach and small intestine. Patches can avoid this.
- You don’t need to worry about taking a patch with or without food.
- Patches sometimes have higher amounts of nutrients than oral supplements.
- Some oral supplements do not taste good.
If any of these ring true for you, it may be time to consider trying Bariatric Vitamin Patches by PatchAid.
