Multivitamins are a great supplement option following weight loss and bariatric surgery procedures such as a gastric sleeve or bypass. Following bariatric surgery, it can be difficult to meet your nutrition requirements meaning nutritional deficiencies can occur. In conjunction with the diet prescribed by your dietitian; vitamins are essential to help you meet your daily vitamin and nutrition needs.
Weight loss surgery guidelines recommend a chewable vitamin supplement for the first 2 months after surgery to maximise absorption of nutrients. Following the 2 months and based on recommendations from your dietitian, surgeon or GP a tablet or capsule vitamin can be an alternate option over the chewable tablet.
