In prep for my 1 year follow up the surgeon sent me for lab work and my B6 came back way way to high. So they asked me to stop taking B6. so now i am looking for a way to cover the B vitamins without B6. I was taking a sublingual multi B liquid.· 4 replies
That's weird that you take them all in one dose and only one gets elevated. Maybe they should repeat that particular blood work?
did a search both on this site and google and found a lot of hits on just that issue - high B6 when taking multi B supplement. Including 1 NIH study that found 17/68 sleeve patients in the study had elevated B6.
going to stop the liquid multi B and just use the chewable Centrum Silver for a few months then retest
That's interesting. Is it just a sleeve issue or is that just what you were searching for?
on this site it was sleeve specific but on google it was more wide spread among people that were daily users of supplements and the gov't study was a sleeve study for vitamin deficiencies that found oddly B6 went up more than it went down post op
NSV: yesterday a business man came into to see one of the bosses. He gave me a candy bar first and then the paperwork. I said I would be sure to give to supervisor. he says no candy is for you. I said its ok, he was , NO ITS FOR YOU. I said thank you , that I had had weight surgery so I tend to stay away from candy. He looked at me up and down and said you don't need surgery (probably didn't understand what I had said). It's nice knowing that I look fit enough to where I would not need one, lol. Working out 25 out of 31 days definitely helps!· 0 replies
