Importance of Supplements for Bariatric Patients

Bariatric surgery alters the anatomy of the gastrointestinal tract, affecting nutrient absorption, making supplementation essential to prevent deficiencies and promote overall health. Vitamin and mineral deficiencies are common after bariatric surgery, with deficiencies in vitamins such as B12, D, and iron, as well as minerals like calcium and zinc, frequently observed. Multivitamin and mineral supplements formulated specifically for bariatric patients are often recommended to ensure adequate intake of essential nutrients. Protein supplements are crucial for bariatric patients to support wound healing, muscle preservation, and overall metabolic function. The type and dosage of supplements needed may vary depending on the type of bariatric surgery performed, individual patient factors, and dietary habits.
