I was told by my dr to try the Caltrete gummies for my Calcium--I noticed that the are covered in sugar--for 2 tablets its 7g.

I've only taken them a little over a day, but notice soon after I do I get weak, little woozy, and slight headache. Is this from the small amt of sugar?

We were told no gummies as they would not dissolve quick enough and could get stuck. As for the sugar content it is to much at once and you are having symptoms of dumping syndrome. Only 5 grams at the most per serving of sugar was h guideline I was given. There are many choices for bariatric. Bariatric Advantage Vitamins. They taste pretty good lots of flavors to choose from and no dumping. Good luck to you!

I think the gummies have half as much Calcium as the chewables if I remember correctly. That's how it is with the Bariatric Advantage brand anyhow. Only 250g in the gummies and the chewables are 500g. I think the chewables are tearing up my stomach though. (I"m pre-op)

      My 3 babies and my little "niece". Took on a babysitting job this past weekend. She is super tiny compared to my 3 biggies. Sitting on command for treat-os!
       
      Pre-op Liquid - Day 2 
      It was very hard today...I'm feeling some type of way from not eating the meals I was supposed to before the pre-op diet. My sister got stuck in Dallas a week before my diet and we were supposed to go on a nice dinner, but that never happened. I have super bad dry mouth and bathroom breaks are more frequent.

      Pre-op Liquid Diet - Day 1
      Had my morning cup of 8 oz Regular Orange Juice. I am ready!!! I did have 3 bites of my fiance's cheesecake last night for dinner. It was so yummy but with my former sleeve it didn't allow me any more bites.
