Keeping up with Vitamins After Bariatric Surgery

Keeping up with Vitamins After Bariatric Surgery

Jan 03, 2022 Alex Brecher

One of the most important ways you can take care of yourself after bariatric surgery is to take your vitamins. It can be challenging, but PatchAid Vitamin Patches can help. PatchAid Multivitamin Plus Patches and Bariatric Surgery Patch Packs are designed to make taking your vitamins as easy and effective as possible after bariatric surgery.

Recommendations for Bariatric Vitamins

Bariatric surgeons and other experts say bariatric surgery patients should take bariatric vitamins for life. And regular multivitamins may not do the trick. The amounts of vitamins or minerals that they have may be too low for bariatric surgery patients. Some multivitamins don’t even have minerals in them, leaving you at risk for deficiencies of minerals such as iron, zinc, selenium, and copper. 

Bariatric surgery patients need high amounts of vitamins and minerals for a few reasons.

  • Diets can be limited in variety and amounts of food.
  • They may go into surgery with nutrient deficiencies.
  • They may have nutrient absorption issues after surgery.

Bariatric vitamins are formulated with high levels of key nutrients.

Challenges with Oral Vitamins

When we think of taking our vitamins, many of us think of taking something by mouth. And that can be hard or impossible for bariatric surgery patients. These are some challenges to taking capsules, chewable tablets, or liquid vitamins.

  • The gag reflex can be greater after bariatric surgery, making it harder to swallow capsules.
  • Chewable tablets and liquid vitamins can taste terrible.
  • Gummies often lack minerals.
  • It can be hard to time oral supplements with meals.
  • Side effects related to digestion can include nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.

PatchAid Vitamin Patches eliminate these issues.
