    Vitamin B1 (Thiamine) Deficiency

    fatigue, irritability, poor memory, sleep disturbances, precordial pain, anorexia, and abdominal discomfort,are some of them early signs, im currently having issues with b12 and Iron Sent from my LGLK430 using the BariatricPal App
  6. I can say I earned my regain, I fell into bad habits, but I also found out that I have a blockage in my sleeve, twist, so I have 2 pouched, inconstant discomfort, I'm also anemic and b12 is low, so my brain and body were trying to tell me to eat, but the correct food hurt to much, sliders were much better, but did I earn my complication to my sleeve, no , please try not to judge it does still sting when it is done, sometimes there really is a reason, why the wrong food are being put into our mouths,
