Vitamin powdered supplements? Other advice ?



Recommended Posts

Hi

I need advice on powdered Vitamin supplements that you can add to Water or liquids. I cannot take any more pills and am not getting my fluids and Proteins in. Calcium is huge pills I bought and then I got liquid calcium and it tastes like chalk, I gagged on it. I've been in emerg twice in 2 months since surgery with dehydration. I can eat now little bits of food so Im good with that but am really need Vitamins. Sometyhing I can add to fluids.

Thanks

There is a product on the market you can try. Its called Cal EZ. I don't know whether or not it would fit your criteria, but it is something you can mix in. You can always have your Calcium levels measured to check on whether or not the product works for you.

Bariatric Advantage makes chewable Calcium as well as calcium you can dissolve in liquids:

For something very different and not involving your mouth at all, PatchMD makes calcium Patches you wear on your skin, as well as different multi-Vitamin patches:

@@lealor Here's what I use and both are very tasty. The Vitamins (order online from Unjury) are chewable and taste like sweet tarts. The Calcium (bought at Walmart) tastes like a dreamsicle (orange/vanilla). Hope you find something that works for you.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
