Need to find inexpensive bariatric vitamins. HELP!



Recommended Posts

Surgeons all say different things it seems. There is no real gold standard. I think a lot of it depends on your weight, blood profile, Vitamin deficiency's, etc. We are all different. It probably would not hurt to have a complete blood panel done and go from there. My surgeon told me the other day to take 2 Flintstone chewables a day. That's it. I also take Vit D3, Iron and B12 supplements.< br>

I had this for awhile. They sent me shakes and Vitamins covered by my insurance!

If your Dr says you need Calcium and Iron pills you need calcium and iron. Most women that are still menstruating will need them.

I use the Celebrate chewables and melts. Ordered off Amazon. Runs about $25 a month, although you have to order about 3 months supply at a time.

I say do whatever your surgeon tells you to do. Plus, you should take your bloodwork on a regular basis. If your labs look good, just keep doing whatever you're doing. There are some Vitamin and mineral deficiencies that won't show up right away and will take possibly years to show in labs.

We sell almost every brand of Bariatric vitamin in our BariatricPal Store:

You can use code this code for 10% off your order: BARIATRIC10

We also offer % off on a regular basis if you subscribe to any item.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
